About
Not your average "Dry" Museum, the American Prohibition Museum is the first and only museum in the United States dedicated to the history of Prohibition. While here, guests will travel back in time to the early 1900s, as anti-alcohol rallies swept the nation and the "booze problem" was pushed to the fore-front of American politics

    Interesting Tour
    We paid for the guided tour and I personally found it to be fun and interesting. I think I would have gotten bored just walking through and reading everything. We had a great tour guide, Emma, who gave us much more information than was printed up on the walls. Drinks were included in the Speakeasy after the tour and the daiquiri was delicious!
    Hi Extraordinary667356! We're ecstatic to hear that Emma made your guided tour all the more memorable! Thank you so much for the review!

    Great Experience at the American Prohibition Museum!
    The American Prohibition Museum was def a great visit! It was easy to get to (right in the Savannah City Market), navigate and provided a terrific history of the Prohibition era. We took tons of pics as everything was so interesting. We did not have drinks, but there is a speakeasy at the end if you want to finish the tour there.
    Hi Chris! We're so glad to hear that you had such a great time with us! Thank you so much for your review!

    Better than even expected
    We learned so much about American society and the movement that led to prohibition as well as the unintended consequences and what led to the repeal of prohibition. Leaned that the federal income tax was started to balance out the revenue which was lost with passing prohibition! A great way to spend a couple hours in Savannah!
    Hi Jody, thank you so much for your positive review! We're thrilled to hear that you had a great time learning about American society and the history of prohibition. We hope to see you again soon for another informative experience in Savannah!

    Entertaining and Informative
    A great museum well worth a visit. The exhibits are both entertaining and informative. And ending up in a speakeasy setting is fun. Great cocktail selection. Docents are friendly and knowledgeable about the Prohibition era.

    Who knew all the facets of prohibition...
    We heard about this museum on a Savannah historic walking tour, and decided to check it out. It's in the City Market area, and at first, we it thought might be a bit "cheesy." But to our surprise, the museum does a great job. It tells a very thorough account of prohibition, its many factions, and public policy implications. Overall, a good stop - very educational but entertaining at the same time!
    Hello SeeDotGo! We're so glad we offered a pleasant surprise for you. It's easy to not know what you're in for when you walk through our doors, but we like to think, we always smash expectations. Thank you for giving us a chance and giving us a good review!

    Worth the price
    Walked through this museum yesterday after a day strolling through Savannahs streets. Very informative venue with friendly staff who are willing to answer any questions you may have. Nicely arranged and laid out. Very organized.
    Thank you so much for seeing history come to life! We enjoy what we do! Next time in town come back and see us, much more to discover about this amazing time in history!

    Very Informative
    I was doubtful about taking this tour, but it turned out to be very interesting. The on-line information seemed to be pushing drinking, which is a turn-off to me. But we decided to take the guided tour and were glad we did. Our tour guide explained the events and mindset leading up to prohibition, what conditions were like during prohibition, and then why prohibition was eventually repealed. I came away with a much better understanding of the history of that period of time. Well worth the time and ticket price for a guided tour (purchased on-line).
    So glad you came by and heard for yourself this fascinating part of our historical journey!

I discovered this class while touring the Prohibition Museum and knew it was a must-do and booked it that night. Best decision!! This class was phenomenal! Isabella is a fantastic instructor. She made this class fun and entertaining as well as educational. My sister and I had a blast and I have some new home bartending skills to show off! Hands down, this class was the cherry on top of our trip and we made some great friends in class as well!!!

the teeniest feedback is that the booking info says you go home with a bar tool-it was a small recipe book-which is awesome but not what I personally think of as a bar tool but that’s just me -I’m sure that many consider that a tool and it certainly doesn’t change my opinion of the class because it was well worth my time and money. I would do it again!!!

The museum can be a self or guided tour and you can even add on a class to make era cocktails or buy a ticket to have one at the speakeasy at the end of the tour. There are staff dressed in period attire and several rooms to explore with the different facets of prohibition (the pros and the cons). There are a few life size displays through out and many rooms to see. If this seems interesting, I recommend stopping in and grabbing a drink at the speakeasy after your tour is complete.

I did not know what to expect, so my expectations were pretty low. Surprisingly, the Prohibition Museum was fun and informative! Took off one star because it was crowded and I felt a little rushed. Vintage cocktails at the end were a nice touch. (The Jack Rose was excellent!) A fun way to spend an hour or two.

We did the guided tour and it was fabulous. Learned so much about this time in history. There is so much information and documentation about this time period and it was so interesting. The tour guide was a wealth of knowledge and made the tour even more worthwhile. The speakeasy at the end of the tour was fun and the crème de mint drink I ordered was delicious.

This is a cute little museum about the history of American Prohibition. I did this one self-guided; it might have been better on a tour. While the exhibits are pretty self-explanatory, I had a hard time following the narrative thread of the museum.

It can get a little cramped as everyone stops to read the same displays.

The speakeasy upstairs is neat! It was my favorite part of the museum.

We did not do the guided tour, but found that costumed staff here and there still shared adages about the place. Very realistic wax people and the old photographs and information posted were really cool. The daiquiri on the cocktail lounge was delicious!

Highlight of our trip. Learned so much about Prohibition. Very engaging and much larger than it appears from the outside. Our group of 12 had a personal tour guide and he was outstanding!
