Hamilton: The Exhibitionthe large-scale immersive museum that debuted last spring in Chicagowill conclude its five-month residency on Sunday, Aug. 25, Hamilton producer Jeffrey Seller announced.
Inspired by the globally known musical, Hamilton: The Exhibition takes visitors deeper into the life and times of founding father Alexander Hamilton, the American Revolution and the creation of the United States. Hamilton: The Exhibition opened in Chicago on Northerly Island, 1535 S. Linn White Dr., on April 27 and had previously been set to close Sunday, Sept. 8.
The early end date was brought about by numerous, unrelated events on Northerly Island during the final weeks of summer that would complicate access to the exhibition. Conflicting events on the Museum Campus and Northerly Island include a Chicago Bears game on Thursday, Aug. 29, and the North Coast Music Festival on Aug. 30-Sept. 1. Tickets will be automatically refunded from Ticketmaster or other points of purchase for patrons holding tickets to Hamilton: The Exhibition from Aug. 26 to Sept. 8.
NOTE: Hamilton The Musical continues in Chicago through Jan. 5, 2020
