American Prohibition Museum Tours

American Prohibition Museum
Learn about the quirky history of prohibition at the American Prohibition Museum in Savannah. Explore this controversial moment in America's past with exhibits on everything from gangsters and bootleggers to politicians and flappers. Costumed docents, wax figures, and an on-site cocktail bar round out the experience.

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.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • History and cocktail aficionados will appreciate the American Prohibition Museum.
  • To avoid the hassle of ticket lines, plan to pre-book admission online.
  • For a great value, but a ticket that includes a complimentary drink at Congress Street Up—the museum's prohibition-style bar.
  • Design and advertising fans shouldn't miss the Temperance Movement exhibit, which is full of vintage ephemera and old propaganda posters.

How to Get There
The American Prohibition Museum is located at 209 West Saint Julian St., in Savannah. The most convenient way to reach the museum is to drive; parking is available at the nearby Robinson Parking Garage. You can also book a trolley tour or Seway tour of the area or try the regional bike share service—known as CAT Bike.

When to Get There

The American Prohibition Museum is open daily, and the speakeasy is open Tuesday through Saturday during the evening, with extended hours on Friday and Saturday. The Speakeasy hosts music on Thursday evenings.

Exploring the Historic District by Trolley

For a hassle-free afternoon exploring Savannah's picturesque Historic District, opt for a hop-on hop-off trolley tour. Since most tours include about a dozen stops, you can expect to pass many of Savannah's must-see attractions, such as Lafayette Square, the open-air City Market on Bryan Street, and the American Prohibition Museum. Combo deals that include discounted admission to nearby museums offer a particularly good value.
