Museum of American Finance Announces Federal Reserve Centennial Exhibit

On Wednesday, September 25, the Museum of American Finance will open “The Fed at 100,” an exhibition commemorating the centennial anniversary of the Federal Reserve System, featuring the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The exhibition will illuminate the complex workings of the nation’s central bank and the pivotal role it has played throughout the history of American finance. Federal Reserve Bank of New York President William C. Dudley will formally introduce the exhibit at an opening reception that evening.

“The Fed at 100” will be the Museum’s largest exhibition to date and will encompass three galleries and a theater. The exhibition will include a unique visitor experience designed to provide a firsthand view of the Fed’s inner workings and position within the federal government. Visitors will be invited to enter and explore the offices of four people who play critical roles in designing policy and overseeing the central bank: the Chairman of the Board of Governors; a Reserve Bank president; a research assistant; and the Chairman of the Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee.

The Museum is located at 48 Wall Street, on the corner of William Street, and is open Tues–Sat, 10 am – 4 pm. For more information, visit
