Still suffering the effects of Super Storm Sandy. There is a temporary site at 45 Wall Street. Stop by and don't miss the Museum Store.

Folks be aware, there is some rumors and talk of a $25 fee to be imposed to visit this museum. However, things are being done to try to ward off this exorbitant fee. Stay tunes

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis
