I would have loved to see this museum but I came at 3pm on a Saturday and the gentleman informed me they were closing. I was disappointed.

Not open on weekdays to visitors which is a pity as this looks like a very workman like vessel. A long way from NYC where it spent it's working life.

Please go see this Fire Boat. It was a pleasure to meet the volunteers onboard the FireFighter. What a massive ship. I hope I can see it one day shiny broth again.

A free - donations requested - of a fireboat. Docents are very informative and take you to engine room, main deck, and bridge. Allowed my child to sit in captain's seat and ring bell. Recommended for history lovers, very informative.

Very interesting attraction. Boat is grimy and gritty and give the real feel of what the firefighter aboard must have faced in the line of duty.

The museum was a discovery during our walking afternoon in Greenport. None of us had any idea about the history and special events depicted on this museum/boat. Very Cool!
