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.
My group of 5 visited in early October, on a Friday evening during Happy Hour. The museum on the two upper floors was very well done, but you need to be able to navigate old staircases. I'm not a huge Revolutionary War history buff, but...More
I'm at the end of my trip here and during one of my tours, I saw this place and put it on my NY bucket list. I have old family ties to New Amsterdam and the Revolutionary Wat, and could not pass up the chance...More
Fraunces Tavern Museum is on the two floors above the restaurant. It has some very rare and unique artifacts. Some of the items are the door of the coach that Washington rode in for his inauguration, his tooth, a lock of his hair plus many...More

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
Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
