Enjoyed the short movie and museum. It is a small area, but very well done. I liked the 3rd floor with all the paintings and flags. This is a great place to learn a little more history of our country and step back in time.

I visited this building simply to see a piece of history, but we stayed for the good food! The restaurant is decorated in period furniture, although nothing is original to the building. The food is somewhat expensive but to be expected in a restaurant like...More

This is not a large museum, however, it is very well thought out. The early history of our country is quite fascinating and this was a very important place at a significant time in American history. Unfortunately, no paranormal sightings/occurrences to share.

We spent a good hour or so perusing the displays. The tour guide was FABULOUS and made the history of the tavern come alive. I'm so glad we made time for the tour before our dinner downstairs. I highly recommend visiting here!

In 1783, George Washington said his farewell to the troops here in this building. The person selling tickets when we visited was very knowledgeable and gave us a brief tour. The introductory video is well done and worth watching. Having recently read a fascinating book...More

Very interesting museum, which is a separate entity from the restaurant although you enter both through the front door. (The museum is upstairs.) You can tour the museum on your own or take a guided tour (just under an hour) -- check the website for...More

My fascination with FRAUNCES TAVERN began a few years ago when reading a book, that I know longer recall the name. In the book they talked about General George Washington saying good by to his troops at the tavern. So I looked it up to...More

A must see for any history buff and one of the true bargains in NYC, only $7 admission, $4 with student ID. You can go on a tour, but definitely enjoyable as a self-guided walk through. Highly recommend.

We didn't know this museum existed, but had eaten at Fraunces tavern, and saw the sign for the museum upstairs. We were so glad we ventured upstairs - this is a fascinating spot, jam-packed with history. This was the actual setting for George Washington's farewell...More

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.
