American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition

On view Nov 9, 2013 - March 16, 2014

 

Meet the drys, wets, gangsters, flappers, lawmen and suffragists of America’s most colorful, complex constitutional hiccup in "American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition," created by the National Constitution Center. The exhibit includes more than 100 rare artifacts; a re-created speakeasy; films, music, photos and multi-media exhibits; and a video game where you serve as a federal agent tracking down rumrunners.
