The Museum of American Finance is the nation's only independent public museum dedicated to the history of American finance. Through its collections and exhibitions, the Museum guards America's collective financial memory and interprets current financial issues, thereby connecting the past with the present while serving as a guide for the future. Through its lectures, programs and financial literacy initiatives, the Museum provides a deeper understanding of finance and economics to visitors of all ages. Located in a historic New York City bank building, the Museum features permanent exhibits on the financial markets, money, banking and entrepreneurship, as well as timely temporary exhibits. It is currently showing a gold and jewel-encrusted Monopoly game, on loan from the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History.
