When you enter Federal Hall, you follow the same steps as George Washington—it was here that he took the oath of office to become the first president of the United States. This National Park Service site, nestled on Wall Street, was also home to the first Congress, Supreme Court and Executive Branch offices. The current structure on this spot, a resplendent Customs House, welcomes visitors to learn about the origins of the United States and its inaugural leader.

Really interesting - lots of uses over time, steeped in the history of NYC commerce, development and change. Very decent presentation of artifacts, all the guides I've met have been super cordial and informative. Originally represented the government, became a customs house, and then when that moved converted into a museum. Federal park system is always a great idea to visit.
