A worldwide recognized and renowned institution. A visit to the "floor" is a truly special event. Being at the Exchange and observing both history and the future is remarkable.

This was my second visit to the area. It's truly a iconic building with the huge american flag outside. You can't help but be impressed with the whole area, out side the banking crisis etc and just reflect on behind the walls huge amounts of decisions are made behind the walls everyday that have ramifications for the rest of the...

We weren't able to actually go in but the architecture of this old building is really cool. It's worth it to check out and it's really close to a lot of things in the financial district. Be sure to add it to your list of places to check out while in downtown.

Sadly tours are no longer offered to the public so all you can see is the exterior of the building . Great to visit if you are interested in the financial markets . Go early on weekends to avoid huge crowds .

The NYSE is not open to the public, however, if you have special connections it is possible to arrange a tour. I was lucky to have the opportunity to see the inside of the NYSE! It looks very similar to a movie set because CNBC and many other news stations are set up all throughout the NYSE. Also, there are... More

There are no tours to the NY Stock Exchange. It's really not a destination by itself. All you can do is walk past and take a photo or two. But here is a tip if you want to visit a museum or to learn about the financial markets-- go to the Museum of American Finance (only 500 feet down the... More

Lovely building on the outside. Lots of security and barriers around. Only thing to do is to look and admire it's facade and take pictures. Slightly disappointing. The building is not open to the public.

Can't go inside and there is security everywhere. Financial district was cool though lots of pubs. Besides taking photos not much else to do.

We were expecting bells to ring, and people to be rushing in and out, and the famous "BUY! BUY! SELL! SELL!" chants from inside. Little did we know that the NYSE is closed to the public! :( It was still interesting to walk around the Financial District, but I would couple the NYSE visit with the 9/11 Memorial visit, as...
