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

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.

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.
