Savannah’s American Prohibition Museum

Submitted by on August 13, 2017 – 8:58 amNo Comment

American Prohibition Museum, Savannah, GeorgiaOnce known as the “Bootleg Spigot of the South”, Savannah, Georgia, is the perfect place for the new American Prohibition Museum, 209 West St. Julian Street.

It tells the story how, during the 1920s and 1930s, alcohol and ‘liquor’ was banned and driven into underground secret drinking clubs. The interactive museum features 20 exhibits relating how the coastal town became known as the “Bootleg Spigot of the South” during an era of gangsters and rum-runners.

The museum explains the Temperance Movement and the propaganda used to vote America dry, and covers the consequences of the passing of the 18th amendment to the United States Constitution, which established the prohibition of alcoholic beverages by declaring the production, transport, and sale of alcohol (though not the consumption or private possession) illegal.

A highlight of the museum an authentic speakeasy, only accessible by password, where the bartenders teach visitors how to make classic Prohibition cocktails while revealing the history behind every pour.

Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily (speakeasy hours are 5:30 to 11 p.m. Thursdays plus 5:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays). The museum will be closed St. Patricks Day — but that’s because it will have special holiday hours.
