The Federal Reserve Bank of New York offers guided tours to school groups and the general public. Visitors will learn about the roles and responsibilities of the Federal Reserve. Set in the basement of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York is the Gold Vault, which holds around 497,000 gold bars weighing a total of about 6,190 tons. Much of the gold arrived during and after WWII when countries wanted to store their gold in a safe spot. The vault remains the world’s largest known depository of monetary gold, and you can visit during a free hour-long tour Monday through Friday. Tours fill up quickly, so reserve your space on The Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s website in advance.
