The New York City Fire Museum just launched a new and fun activity for kids: a scavenger hunt that leads young visitors through the Museum’s historic exhibitions hunting for artifacts amongst century-old fire engines. The scavenger hunt is free with admission and a surprise gift awaits those who complete the hunt! A must-do activity this summer!
