  • A good time for all. Ask for the drink option, it will save you a few bucks. The tour was interesting, part guided, parts at your pace. Then you go into a speakeasy, really cool. Very vintage, very tasty. Highly recommend the Artillery punch. Vintage glassware too.
  • Really fun tour. Looks a little cheesy an it is; however, it's full of interesting memorabilia and fun facts about prohibition. The speakeasy at the end was really cool. The decor is awesome and the drinks were so good my mom got 2. Sh'es not much of a drinker. Check it out when you come visit.
  • This museum really had to offer. I thought I knew a lot about the prohibition, until I came here. They had plenty of staff through out the museum to explain the different exhibits and they did a wonderful job of entertaining their guests. The bar in the middle of the museum had some truly unique cocktails. The bartenders serving them had some skills I'd never seen before, and I've worked in restaurants and bars my whole life. I would recommend this as a just see to anyone visiting Savannah.
  • Great history lesson regarding Prohibition and life back in the 1930's & 40's! Wax figures were amazing and of course ALL of the antique vehicles were restored to perfection! On the way out there is a bar 🍸 that offers speciality drinks! A FUN time was had by ALL!
  • This is a well put together museum with great exhibits. We all enjoyed the visit and learned lots. We added the museum passes into our hop on hop off bus tour and were happy we did. Some great photo opportunities with the kids :-)
