Hamilton is not only a smash musical hit with multiple productions around the world and on tour, it is also now the subject of “Hamilton: The Exhibition,” a 360° immersive experience, which opened in Chicago in April 2019. Jeffrey Sellers and Adventureland, LLC (producer of Hamilton in New York, London, and on tour) produced the exhibit in collaboration with Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda and the show’s scenic designer David Korins, who served as creative director.
“Hamilton: The Exhibition” is housed in a temporary building erected on the city’s Northerly Island along Lake Michigan. Visitors wander through 18 rooms that chronicle the life of Alexander Hamilton, the immigrant who rose to be a founding father of the United States.
