    Alexander Hamilton Circle

    The Museum of the City of New York opened to the public on Alexander Hamilton’s birthday in 1932, and a bronze sculpture of Hamilton adorns the Museum’s façade. The Museum’s patrons’ program is named in honor of this brilliant and influential New Yorker. Members of the Alexander Hamilton Circle provide essential support for the Museum’s general operations and receive numerous special benefits.
