Welcome to the Museum of Trade, Finance, and the Fed in the New Orleans Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. Here, you can explore how finance grew from trade, how New Orleans evolved into a bustling port and financial center, and how, over the centuries, the institutions, instruments, and people of New Orleans made it all possible.
There is no charge for admission. We permit only walk-in visits. We cannot accommodate organized groups or field trips. Visitors are welcome to explore the exhibits from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding bank holidays, when the museum is closed. The museum hours are subject to change based on security considerations and the national threat level issued by the Homeland Security Advisory System. To ensure the safety of our visitors and staff, the museum is subject to immediate closure should conditions warrant such an action.
