  • Very interesting Museum, provides a great learning about the financial market. There was a guide giving explanations and we can take advantage of a lot of the information provided by him. Interesting articles of gold, collections of all time and a lot of information about the stock market. We hadn't planned to visit this Museum, but we were strolling through the financial district and was a pleasant surprise.

  • Worth going for 6 or 8 bucks to watch a small museum about the most dollars-you decide. Here and the first coin-operated machines, and of course numezmatika. Something outstanding have not seen and not sfotali. Plus with us came a group of school children from another State. For them it was a objazalovka, so they don't give, we came not Ahti. Not far from the Museum, New York, Nasdaq.

  • Pretty nice spot with some interesting old money, bonds, stock certificates, etc. Cool architecture of the old bank. It's not that big, but only $8 for adults.
  • Great museum with interesting exhibits on gold and American currency. It's very small though with only 1 floor. Beautiful interior though
  • I visited here on a high school field trip. Coming from an economics class, I was able to interpret and appreciate everything the museum had to offer. The exhibits were very engaging and informative. I feel that overall, this museum helped me to get a better grasp on the way America was created through finance and great minds within it. My favorite part of the museum was the currency exhibit. Here, you are able to get up close and personal with America's currency from the first bills up to present. You were able to also view each bill individually on a computer screen to learn more about each version. If I could recommend anything to the museum, I would like to see a live stock market chart. TL;DR If you have any interest in money or the nation's history and are in the area, stop by and check this place out!
  • The museum has a very nice collection of coins and paper money, and also hosts a number of interesting guest speakers. This past winter, for example, Robert Shiller spoke for an hour or two about his new book.
  • Nice museum with interesting exhibits. It's not for everyone though you have to be interested in the subject matter or at least history.
