The New York Stock Exchange building in the Financial District is one of the most iconic buildings in NYC. Located at 11 Wall Street, the historical site has been closed to the public ever since September 11, with only private meetings, bell-ringing events and school field trips allowed. However, we got an exclusive look inside. Watch to see the standout, historical items from the New York Stock Exchange.

We toured the building’s many conference rooms filled with historical items, snuck a peek at the invitation-only restaurant and hidden dining room next door, and admired the architecture of the board rooms that were there when it was founded in 1792.
Standout items found inside the New York Stock Exchange building include the largest Fabergé piece in the world, a Led Zeppelin guitar, Andy Warhol art, a clock from 1867 and the Buttonwood Agreement, one of the oldest historical documents in the United States found outside Washington, D.C. There’s also an autograph wall signed by bell-ringers that’s hidden inside a hallway, and a map room that’s just full of, you guessed it, maps.
Below all the history-filled rooms, there’s the trading floor—that’s where the stocks are traded. There’s also the iconic bell, the most famous item in the New York Stock Exchange. Currently, 36 media outlets film shows and live-stream from the trading floor, adding to the hustle and bustle.
Even if you never get the chance to go inside the New York Stock Exchange, it’s worth visiting Wall Street to see the famous Charging Bull statue. It’s found in Bowling Green in the Financial District, and earlier this year, an artist unveiled the Fearless Girl statue directly across from it.
