Event Details

Everyone is fascinated by Alexander Hamilton, but who was he really? On a docent-led tour of the Museum, visitors can discern fact from myth surrounding the life and legacy of Alexander Hamilton. Hamilton Tours will acquaint visitors with an in-depth portrayal of a statesman and visionary through an exploration of objects from the New-York Historical Society’s permanent collection and documents from the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History and the Patricia D. Klingenstein Library.
