The Basics

America’s only Prohibition museum offers exhibits that cover this era in the country’s history from the Temperance Movement through the Great Repeal. Immerse yourself in the world of bathtub gin and smugglers, then take a cocktail class at the museum’s speakeasy—or just relax with a craft cocktail at the swanky bar. For a full-day cultural excursion, you can opt for a trolley tour of the Savannah Historic District that includes admission to the museum.

A Savannah must

Skip-The-Line: The American Prohibition Museum Admission Ticket
My boyfriend and I loved this museum- which I had more time to spend there! I learned so much, very interactive and engaging. They have amazingly preserved paraphernalia, staff were friendly, not too crowded (even on a Saturday afternoon). Really fun time. I purchased the skip the line ticket but it wasn’t even needed- no line.
