  • If you are a history buff, especially an Alexander Hamilton fan, this is a must. The museum is quaint but informative.  more »
  • The museum is small but has several interesting things on display. The section on slavery is good. They have leg irons and other shackles that you pick up to really get a feel for their weight.  more »
