HAMILTON Fans Itinerary

Follow the story of the birth of the young, scrappy, and hungry country!

Fans of the musical HAMILTON? Of course, Alexander Hamilton was no stranger to the Commonwealth. Follow Alexander Hamilton’s narrative and immerse yourself in the Revolutionary discourse that inspired the songs you know and love. Don’t throw away your shot to travel to a place and time where the country is young, scrappy, and hungry.

Join the Revolution


Visit the Capitol, where a British governor still reigns, and Virginia’s representatives are struggling over the meaning of American liberty.

Entertainments at the Play House

A troupe of musical entertainers + 18th-century history? Yes please. See a show presented by Jug Broke Theatre Co.

Behind the Wythe House

Lookin' for a mind at work? Join us in the Wythe yard to discuss Enlightenment thinking, the ideas that shaped the Revolution, and the ways that free and enslaved people on the property engaged with those ideas.

Here Comes the General!

Why Should a Tiny Island Across the Sea Regulate the Price of Tea?

In 1771, Alexander Hamilton’s inventory included two jugs decorated with the this “No Stamp Act” motif, likely bequeathed to him by his benefactor, James Brown. Today the only known surviving “No Stamp Act” ceramics are teapots, and we have ONE IN OUR COLLECTION, currently on display in the exhibition REVOLUTION IN TASTE. Plus, after you study the piece at the Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg, you can get your own No Stamp Act TEAPOT ORNAMENT, COASTER, or MUG at Colonial Williamsburg stores or online to commemorate your Hamilton-themed trip.
