If you're a student of the American Revolution, this is your place. We had a nice conversation with one of the tour guides who was knowledgeable and passionate about the topic. Allow about an hour to see everything.

Wonderful museum highlighting General Washington farewell address to his troops. It is a lot of fun, and especially oriented to kids. Restaurant downstairs is exceptional

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

Yes, I agree an hour is about right. It is self-guided, so it kind of depends on how much you want to read.
