  • So impressed. Not just a tourist attraction. It is high quality, educational and lots of fun. Very much worth the money! Pro tip: please be sure to give it your all when you dance the Charleston in front of the mirror. Trust me. Also AMAZING cocktails in the speakeasy.
  • They told us when we bought our tickets that at the end we could have a beer free as part of our ticket. They check your ID throughput the process. If you wanted a hard drink you could buy an addition ticket for that. Then when we got to the end we were told that we had to buy any drink. If we miss understood it was not of our making as we asked the question about the drink several times to make sure we understood. Or the bartender is making extra money
  • A walk through a fascinating chapter of our country's past. The Prohibition Museum was packed with interesting information, visuals, and audio. At one point, a guide addresses the entire group and gives everyone a little additional information. The whole thing ends at a speakeasy, which was very clever. We bought our ticket here as an addition to our trolley tour (reduced price if you do so), and it turned out to be a great decision
  • Loved it! Interesting material in an intriguing layout. Speakeasy was a really fun way to end the tour. Would have loved if the gift shop had prints of the prohibition propaganda posters or period drink glasses like those in the speakeasy.
  • We stumbled upon this place to try and avoid the heat and it didn’t disappoint. What would have made this better was more of a guided tour since there was so much to read it would have been nice to pay a little extra to have someone explain the whole thing to us. The coolest part was the prohibition drinks you can order while in the museum.
