Welcome to Federal Hall National Memorial!

Here are some items that you might want to know in advance:

Federal Hall National Memorial is open year-round and located on Wall Street. Admission to the site is free and we are open Monday through Friday. Visitors are welcome to view our exhibit galleries containing historical information about George Washington, The Constitution and the federal government. The Bible George Washington used during his inauguration was loaned to him by a local Masonic Lodge, St. Jonh's No. 1. When it is not in use by the Lodge or on tour, it is on display in a special case in the Inaugural Gallery on the first floor of Federal Hall NM. Currently, the Bible is on tour. Guided tours as well as self-guided tours of the building are also available. Junior Ranger Programs are available for the kids, and our bookstore offers a variety of memorabilia and publications for purchase. Here's more information on operating hours, fees, permits & reservations, and goods & services.
