Not really much to see from the outside just a building with bars on the windows, I never got to go in, not sure if that is even possible.

The process for booking a tour of this place required way too much planning and so we ended up just being content with a walk past the exterior. A nice enough looking building, but probably the real attraction is what lies inside. We will have to plan better next time!

Great informative tour, interesting and something a bit different. Book free tickets on-line a month in advance, they go really fast.

There is only 25 places for each hour and some days there is no tour available. You also have to arrive 30 min. early for security check!! You need government issued photo is i.d.... More

A fascinating experience, made even better by the fact that it was free! You have to time ticket buying perfectly as the tickets come out a month before the tour, and at local time. Places are very limited so make sure you keep an eye open for them. The tour guide was absolutely brilliant, and knew her stuff. She was... More

First off, make sure your aware of the booking procedure as the places go fast!! Really interesting tour and is only an hour so if the economics go over your head the visit to the gold vault five stories underground is worth a visit alone! Our guide Maureen was very knowledgeable and made for an even more enjoyable experience Also,... More

I've been to NYC several times so thought this tour would be something different than the usual tourist things. The actual booking process was quite time-consuming and required logging on pretty much as soon as the tour date opened up, but I finally managed to get a place. I was meeting a friend in the city that week so had... More

As it was said before - you have to book your place 30 days in advance and there are only 50 persons allowed per day. It makes the whole reservation process rather challenging. We even changed our initial travel plan just to take this tour! We came to the Bank 30 minutes in advance, went through security screening, took the... More

The booking process is quite frustrating as you need to book approx 6 am New York Time 30 days in advance online. Once you have secured a slot you receive a confirmation email detailing that you need to have photo ID and be prepared to go through airport style security before you are allowed on the tour. The museum is... More
