Lower Manhattan and Wall Street have become synonymous with American political history, so be sure to visit some of the most significant landmarks during your stay for a closer look and better understanding of the country’s past. The impressive Federal Hall on Wall Street, and more specifically its balcony, was the site of George Washington’s inauguration, and now houses a national museum where visitors can explore the story of the Bill of Rights, the Customs House of 1842 and take a general tour of US history. You can get even closer to Washington at one of his old favourite haunts, the Fraunces Tavern. The modest three-storey public house is filled with memorabilia from by-gone days; striking colonial rooms, Revolutionary firearms, and previous American flags.

Culture vultures will be spoilt for choice with the vast number of alternative museums, looking at a wide variety of disciplines; from urban, contemporary architecture at The Skyscraper Museum, to past and present settlements and communities in the city at the Museum of Jewish Heritage and the National Museum of the American Indian.
