Interesting visit, a couple nice old cars and some wax statues. Very factual. It’s pretty fast to walk through, but the cost is reasonable.

We were looking for something to do for an hour or so and ran across this museum. It was very nicely set up and very informative. Fun to see how the world has progressed. It's too bad the youngsters of today probably wouldn't appreciate this....More

Great museum to educate the diffrent views during the prohibition. Great way to get out of the heat and have a drink at the speakeasy poured by masterful bartender. Remember, to try your talents of doing the Charleston. They show you how to do it...More

This tour was suggested by the trolley tour guide we had and the girls enjoyed the tour. There was stuff for all ages. The bartenders were the best part of the tour. They interacted with the kids and they had a great time

This was so much information then we thought we'd get. Very interesting. There was a "Speakeasy" experience at the end but we did not partake. The gift shop had various things - not just items pertaining to the prohibition.
