The Museum will once again be the venue for the Wall Street Collectors Bourse, which will take place October 21-23, 2016. Now in its sixth year, the Bourse is a free exposition, sale and live auction by international collectors and dealers displaying hundreds of works on paper from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. These include stock and bond certificates, autographs, photographs, fine prints and ephemera, as well as currency, coins and commemorative medals. Members of the public are invited to bring their own “treasures” for a free appraisal by Bourse experts.
The Bourse will be open to the public in the Museum’s magnificent Grand Mezzanine exhibit hall at 48 Wall Street, which is the historic former headquarters of the Bank of New York. The Museum will be open to the public for free during the Bourse. Featured exhibits include “Worth its Weight: Gold from the Ground Up” and “Alexander Hamilton: Man with a Plan,” in addition to permanent exhibits on the Financial Markets, Money and Banking.
“Alexander Hamilton: Art and Popular Culture,” a digital exhibit of Hamilton-related images and documents, will be on view on the "big screen" during Bourse hours.
