Albany History Race: Alexander Hamilton Edition!

Albany History Race: Alexander Hamilton Edition! In-Person

[For all ages] Can't get tickets to Hamilton?  Join us for an Amazing Race-style afternoon scavenger hunt to discover Albany's connections to Alexander Hamilton, the Schuyler Family, Lafayette, and Aaron Burr! The event is free and no prior knowledge is needed. This year, Albany Public Library has partnered with Albany Institute of History and Art, which will serve as the finish line for this event.  

Here's how you can participate and win!

  • Make a team! All teammates must fit in one car. You provide the car.
  • Meet at the Washington Avenue Branch of Albany Public Library, at 2pm on Saturday, 9/7 to receive clues directing you to Hamilton locations in Albany.
  • Plan the quickest route to visit the locations that afternoon.
  • Hop in your team's car, drive to the spots, and document your quick visit with a picture. 
  • The final stop is the Albany Institute of History and Art, where teams that complete the race will get pizza! The fastest teams to arrive will win Hamilton themed prizes! 
  • If you are craving more Hamilton, return to the Albany Institute on another visit to view their exhibition "The Schuyler Sisters and Their Circle."
