On Wall Street, came here for a reception because my son won an award. The museum itself is basically one floor. They have the first handheld device that was used to replace paper buy and sell trades on the market floor. Strangely, they have an...More

Worth a 30 minute visit to get inside a beautiful old Wall St building. Only $8 and incredibly friendly staff. Two featured exhibits are tickertape from the start of the 1929 crash (rolled up so you can't see much of anything ...) and a bond...More

I recently stopped by this Museum. It isn't all that expensive to enter - only $8. That being said, I found the museum was more like an "School" where it was teaching the basics about Bonds, etc. Additionally, it showed quite a bit of gold....More

Just east of the Trump building and the NYSE. Cost was $8 for adults and plan to spend 40 min to an hour. The Alexander Hamilton room was the best.

Luckily with a Groupon coupon I paid only $3.50 and spent around 30 minutes here. In a city where the standards of art and entertainment are usually high this seemed like a rather poor cousin at best. The building is a previous banking headquarters and...More

Fortunately it happened to be free on the day I visited, because I thought it wa a pretty average experience given the high quality museums in NYC. The most interesting bit was the Alexander Hamilton room. Otherwise it was quite basic leve information

With the closing of the New York Stock Exchange to public tours, the MOAF provides at least some kind of place to visit downtown. While it is not large and not that expensive ($8 for adults), it has three main kiosks for bonds, equities and...More

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis
