Inside Knowledge: The American Museum of Finance was formed by John E. Herzog following the crash of 1987, when the market dropped over 20% in one day. He saw the panic that people experienced and realized that the lessons of the Great Depression, which his parents had taught him, were unrecognized in the chaos. He sought to create a place that educates people about financial history in the United States.
Do's and Don'ts:
- Do Take Notes: The things you learn at the Museum of American Finance will be useful to you in your everyday life. It is one of the goals of the museum. If you want, feel free to take notes on the history you learn, or of information related to present events.

- Don't Expect Stock Tips: Coming to the Museum of American Finance is not going to teach you how to make money on the market. Stick to schooling and research for that. This museum is instead dedicated to helping people understand finance in our society.
- Don't Come on Sunday or Monday: The Museum of American Finance is closed on Sundays and Mondays, as well as any stock market holiday. If you are planning a trip to visit this museum, then keep these days and holidays in mind.
