  • It's a crying shame that Wall Street, one of the most influential forces in history, has only this rather timid museum as its showcase. Perhaps, though, it's on purpose. After all Wall Street likes to keep its true power to itself. One upside on my visit; some interesting examples of worthless Confederate currency. As yet no bitcoin though.
  • Very interesting, if you're interested in finance, stock trading, and money in general. Not very expensive to get in, but unless you're as interested as I was, you probably won't spend very long looking around.
  • Very interesting place! Highly recommend if you have the time.
  • Nice event venue,vintage marble...open layout...remnants of a bank/teller system.
  • Informed history of finance and stock market giving you a little taste of money. Great giftshop as well
