Recommend seeing it! – This was a great overview of just what it says, American finance.
The museum covers the history of American finance through recent times (yep, Bernie Madoff is included) and does so in an interesting way so that you're not bored while you're learning more and more about the occasionally dry topic of fundage.
We went in not knowing what to expect and really enjoyed ourselves, I recommend it!
An affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, the MAFH is a credit to the fiduciary frontlines. – In Short
The world's first billionaire John D. Rockefeller built the skyscraper in which this museum is housed. Founded by John E. Herzog in light of the 1987 stock market crash, the museum exhibits everything from cash registers to robber baron paraphernalia to historic ticker tape. The archives house the largest collection of 18th-century financial papers in the world and the museum is also responsible for publishing the magazine "Financial History."
