The American Prohibition Museum located in Savannah's City Market is the first and only museum in the United States dedicated to the history of Prohibition. While here, guests will travel back in time to the early 1900s, as anti-alcohol rallies swept the nation and the “booze problem” was pushed to the fore-front of American politics. The true story of America’s struggle with the liquor question, the passing of the 18th Amendment, its impact on the nation, and the far-reaching consequences of the thirteen years of Prohibition all come to life within the walls of the American Prohibition Museum.
Through immersive displays and state-of-the-art dioramas, museum goers will learn how Prohibition and Temperance shaped thinking and culture for more than two hundred years of American history.
Not your average “Dry” Museum, the American Prohibition Museum features state-of-the-art displays such as:
A recreated 1918 Street Scene, setting the stage in “Anywhere, USA”--
A captivating Tent Revival featuring fire and brimstone preacher, Reverend Billy Sunday--
Carry Nation’s Hatchetations and a bar demolished by her signature hatchet--
Lillian M.N. Stephens and Adolphus Busch squaring off and pleading their side of the argument--
A dimly lit Moonshine Scene, tucked back into the heart of America’s wilderness--
A hidden gem of a Speakeasy bar, serving up period authentic cocktails--
And much, much more…
