The Algonquin Area Public Library is offering a bus trip to "Hamilton: The Exhibition" in Chicago on Wednesday, July 10.

The exhibition is designed to take visitors deeper into the life and times of Alexander Hamilton, while at the same time chronicling the American Revolution and the creation of the United States of America. A dynamic and interactive mix of lighting, sound, multimedia, music and historical artifacts, you will experience how it felt to write the way Hamilton wrote, fight the way Hamilton fought, and live the way Hamilton lived.

 

The exhibition features an audio tour narrated by the musical's author, Lin-Manuel Miranda, along with other members of the original Broadway production of "Hamilton."

Sit at Hamilton's desk and discover how his work as a trader in St. Croix gave him the skills to create our country's financial system. Gaze upon the streets of New York with detailed replicas of the city in 1776. Step into George Washington's war tent as you learn how the Revolutionary Army planned their shocking victory in the Battle of Yorktown.

"Hamilton: The Exhibition" posits new questions about Hamilton's life and the founding of America, ultimately leaving us to ask the question--how can we leave our own legacies for future Americans?

The event for ages 10 or older will be 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. with in-person registration only. Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a caregiver. It is $35 per person, which includes ticket and bus transportation to and from the event that must be paid upon registration. Cash, check, and credit/debit cards (Visa or Mastercard) accepted. Limit two tickets per person.
