November 15, 2018 – February 23, 2019

Who’s your favorite Hamilton character? Aaron Burr, the conflicted rival and killer? Thomas Jefferson, the political enemy? Eliza Schuyler Hamilton, the devoted wife who tells her husband’s story? Or the man himself? Inspired by the hit Broadway musical Hamilton, this exhibit features artifacts from the life and times of Alexander Hamilton, including a pair of dueling pistols, letters written by Hamilton, and even a lock of Hamilton’s hair! Come see a rare Loyalist red coat from the American Revolution, a 1776 copy of Common Sense by Thomas Paine, and a fragment of the first United States flag, made by Betsy Ross. Additional portraits, posters, and other objects in the exhibit relate to historical characters from the musical, including George Washington, Lafayette, James Madison, and King George III.
