Even though we know quite a bit about prohibition times this museum did a great job of giving you a good overall historical view. They have done a great job recreating many different ways for visitors to learn about prohibition. Loved the Speak Easy!

Definitely a fun way to kill an hour or so. Tons of information about the forces pushing for/against prohibition and some of the unexpected outcomes. Very interesting. Also, a very high quality, polished presentation.
