Field trip with my colleagues to the Museum of American Finance

I spent this morning with three of my colleagues visiting the American Museum of Finance on Wall Street, down the street from the NYSE, the Trump building and a couple of blocks form the New York Fed.  Last week I joined the AMOF and will organize a trip in September for my Financial History of the US course.  I urge you to join at www.moaf.org

Below are some pictures I took inside the museum.  If you will be visiting NYC, I highly recommend spending some time viewing the exhibits, which show how American finance was instrumental in creating our prosperity.
