This museum offers many different facts about American money but I wouldn't spend a whole day here. It is relatively small in size but they really do fill up all the space pretty well. One thing that I was really opposed to was that their...More

Tried to visit this museum but it was closed. A look at the website reveals that it is closed until further notice as a result of severe flooding in January. A small notice to that effect on the door would have been helpful as we...More

I have always been interested in currency and finance and it was so interesting to see old bills and a lot of other information. A ticker tape from the stock market crash.

The building was from an old bank, really nice. The museum is very small, but pretty interesting. We got a tour there and they explained how the stock market started and how money worked in the US since the begining. It's a very original museum.

I stopped by the museum on a whim. The museum talks about the building's history and covers economics and market history in a fun way. Definitely would recommend!

You don't need to know anything about finance to find interesting facts and objects at this little gem right on Wall Street. If you come by the 2 or 3 subway, you may come through the Atrium at 60 Wall Street. This is that rare...More

Located close to Wall Street. Explains the financial system that built the country. Stocks, bonds, how banks work, etc. Lots of stories of famous industrialists. They even have a check signed by George Washington.Many fascinating artifacts.

Came here while walking around Wall Street. This museum is good and shows you lots of interesting things such as a gold monopoly set which has diamonds for the windows. Well worth a look around this museum if you are near by.
