After previous postponements, Hamilton: The Exhibition opened at Northerly Island and gives even more insight into the life of Alexander Hamilton. 
  FOR those theatergoers who didn’t get enough of the story after experiencing the revolutionary musical Hamilton (currently scheduled to run through September 8 at the CIBC Theatre), there’s more to see and hear at Hamilton: The Exhibition on Northerly Island. 
   The 360-degree, immersive exhibit features an audio tour narrated by Hamilton author/creator/star Lin-Manuel Miranda, who also will be featured in short films at several locations throughout the tour in the 27,000-square-foot exhibit that exists as a result of the combined efforts of Miranda, director Thomas Kail, creative director and set designer David Korins and producer Jeffrey Seller.
   With the dramatic combination of lighting, sound, multimedia, music and historical artifacts, visitors will have the opportunity to take a journey through Alexander Hamilton’s life, giving them the possibility of viewing exactly what one of the Founding Fathers of the United States saw through his eyes. For instance, visitors will start at Hamilton’s trading post desk in St. Croix and move through to experience detailed replicas of New York streets in 1776. A few steps farther, look inside George Washington’s war tent, where the Revolutionary Army planned its surprising victory in the Battle of Yorktown. Various other stages of Hamilton’s life are highlighted until it ended in Weehawken, NJ, during his duel with Aaron Burr. 
   Although the musical Hamilton provided quality insight into Alexander Hamilton’s life, the exhibit’s creators say they hope the interactive exhibition expands on the general education gained through the musical. "In an environment that is visually stunning, aurally thrilling and ingeniously educational,” says Seller, “we aim to give visitors yet another unique portal through the life of Alexander Hamilton into the American founding.”
