Tour The Schuyler Sisters and Their Circle Exhibit

October 3, 2019


Sparked by the phenomenal success of Hamilton: An American Musical, the Albany Institute of History & Art has organized the exhibition The Schuyler Sisters and Their Circle. The Schuylers were a prominent Dutch family in New York in the 18th and 19th centuries, who played a central role in the formation of our country.

This exhibition will use clothing, decorative arts, portraits, and manuscripts from the Revolutionary Period to the Federal Period to tell the stories of the Schuyler women. For the first time, objects associated with the Schuyler sisters will be brought together in their hometown and displayed in the museum.

Join us for a tour of this unique exhibit on Thursday, October 31 at 1:00 p.m. The Albany Institute of History and Art is located at 125 Washington Ave., Albany. There is a parking lot behind the museum on Elk Street (between Swan St. and Dove St.). For CDTA users, take bus #13 on the corner of Cardinal and New Scotland (across from APL’s Bach Branch). Tickets to the exhibit are $8.00 and can be purchased at the museum. Please call NNORC to register at 518-514-2023.
