If you enjoy seeing history, we feel sure you will enjoy the special exhibits we create regularly, and which can be found on our website after the physical term has ended. Special exhibitions offer visitors a great opportunity to learn about Alexander Hamilton’s life and often view original Hamilton artifacts that are normally locked away in archives.

The following are exhibitions that the Alexander Hamilton Awareness Society has co-curated or contributed towards:
