WORLD PREMIERE APRIL 27, 2019
Northerly Island – Chicago
THE FOUNDING OF AMERICA
Alexander Hamilton’s remarkable story has inspired millions of Americans. Now, you can see it through his eyes in this 360-degree immersive museum exhibition from the creators of the revolutionary musical.
Featuring interactive games and displays, lifelike projections, full-scale statues, and Instagram-worthy art installations, Hamilton: The Exhibition takes visitors deeper into Alexander Hamilton’s life as it chronicles the American Revolution and the creation of the United States of America.
Discover how Hamilton’s work as a trader in St. Croix gave him the skills to create our country’s financial system. Find yourself in the eye of the hurricane that drove Hamilton to America. Gaze upon the same New York streets where he first landed in 1776. Step into George Washington’s war tent and see the Battle of Yorktown come alive through an intricately reenacted virtual battle.
And finally, as you end your journey through the exhibition, watch the opening number of Hamilton starring Lin-Manuel Miranda — in 3D.
Whether you spend an hour or an afternoon – Hamilton: The Exhibition is truly an adventure of your own making.
Underscored by a brand-new, 27-piece orchestral recording of the music from Hamilton, the exhibition also features an audio tour narrated by the musical’s author, Lin-Manuel Miranda, along with Phillipa Soo and Christopher Jackson, who played Eliza Schuyler and George Washington in the original Broadway production. Joanne B. Freeman, historical advisor and Professor of History and American Studies at Yale University, also narrates.
Hamilton: The Exhibition is the perfect opportunity for the entire family to experience the full story of Alexander Hamilton and the inspiring founding of our nation. See it. Live it. Walk in his shoes.
