Went here on a tip from a local. Great atmosphere - information made fun- take your time - could go through in 30 min or take almost 2 hours like we did. Museum Pub available if you choose to partake!

We really enjoyed the history and had fun here. Probably not the place to take a child simply because it is more adult themed. Gansters, mawls, and rum running around every corner. Be sure to buy your tickets for a drink at the end before...More

My husband and I toured the museum one afternoon after the riverboat cruise. It is very informative and nicely done. There are lots of historical documents and gives you a good overview of how things were back in the Prohibition times.

We purchased tickets for the Trolley Tour and this was one of this stops. I didn't expect it to be as informative and full of artifacts as it was. I highly recommend it.

Our understanding is no problem with what you wear during the day but evenings require a little more thought with regard to possibly being more in tune with the period.
