Visit this unique museum that chronicles the development and achievements of America's financial system. The Museum of American Finance is housed within a landmarked 1929 building designed by Benjamin Wistar Morris that was once the Bank of New York & Trust Company. The Museum features displays on the financial markets, money, banking, entrepreneurship and Alexander Hamilton, as well as rotating exhibits. There is a regular series of lectures and tours.
Why Museum of American Finance is a Top Museum: The museum's permanent collection includes stocks, bonds, currency, checks, prints, engravings, photographs, and more that tell the history of finance in America. Permanent exhibits on financial markets, money, banking, entrepreneurship and Alexander Hamilton are complemented by traveling exhibits, group classes on financial topics, walking tours of NYC's financial landmarks, and lectures by experts in the field.
When women couldn’t participate in finance, many wielded influence from the sidelines. Abigail Adams had the foresight in her time to see the advantages in trading bonds over farmland and persuaded her husband, John, to do so, according to letters between the two displayed at the Museum of American Finance in New York.

Coins and bills may seem to be just a way we pay for things, but they have a psychic and symbolic weight that belies their physical heft.

Why does finance matter? David J. Cowen, president and CEO of the Museum of American Finance can answer that question. Standing in front of the podium at Cipriani Wall Street on Wednesday night for the institution’s 2017 Gala, he said, “Finance can and does change lives. It is not just dark and mysterious and builds a barrier on walls to the average person, but we in this room know that finance is a beacon of light. It is the best tool for individual self improvement.”
