We didnt know you could do a tour of this place and that it is free but we will certainly get tickets next time we go to New York. We saw the building from outside and took photos whilst passing.

The entrance doors have "Employee Only" signage so let the security officer on the sidewalk know you are there for the tour, and after an ID check, you are radioed in for clearance to enter and go through airport-type security check. Very easy. I was...More

If you didn’t know already... it’s hard to get tickets. Tickets open up 30 days in advance but they are not on at weekends and not necessarily on every weekday either. Some days have 1 tour, some 2. I had read a cheat sheet on...More

Take the guided tour. You have to reserve in advance on their site. The highlight is the largest gold vault in the world - bigger than Fort Knox.

The gold is amazing!!Fantastic free activity to do in NYC. You have to book 1 month in advance. There isn’t coat check , so just bring a small backpack. It was rumored you couldn’t ring any bags but that is untrue.

I have never been on an official tour of the building, but did do some work inside years ago. From the outside you will recognize it from many movies. It supposedly has one of the largest supplies of gold on hand for the U.S. Treasury....More

Yes, I see tours thru June into July. They only show 1 month in advance. I highly recommend you mark your calendar one month in advance of day you want to go and sign on that morning @ 8:59 am. The spots go fast.
