Savannah: American Prohibition Museum Ticket

1. Savannah: American Prohibition Museum Ticket

The American Prohibition Museum located in Savannah's City Market 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. The true story of America’s struggle with the liquor question, the passing of the 18th Amendment, its impact on the nation, and the far-reaching consequences of the thirteen years of Prohibition all come to life within the walls of the American Prohibition Museum.  Through immersive displays and state-of-the-art dioramas, museum goers will learn how Prohibition and Temperance shaped thinking and culture for more than two hundred years of American history.  Not your average “Dry” Museum, the American Prohibition Museum features state-of-the-art displays such as: A recreated 1918 Street Scene, setting the stage in “Anywhere, USA” A captivating Tent Revival featuring fire and brimstone preacher, Reverend Billy Sunday Carry Nation’s Hatchetations and a bar demolished by her signature hatchet Lillian M.N. Stephens and Adolphus Busch squaring off and pleading their side of the argument A dimly lit Moonshine Scene, tucked back into the heart of America’s wilderness A hidden gem of a Speakeasy bar, serving up period authentic cocktails And much, much more… Experience this one-of-a-kind attraction when you visit Savannah!

Journey through Savannah's notable maritime history on a self-guided tour of the Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum. Wander through the exhibits at your own pace, and discover a collection of ship models, maritime antiques, stunning maritime art, and special exhibitions of local and internationally-acclaimed artists. As you take your tour, spend some time marveling at the architecture of the William Scarbrough House, the museum's home, which was designated a National Historic Landmark by the US Park Service in 1974. Delve into the many detailed elements of the Regency architecture, including the honeysuckle and palm molding, the Diocletian window, Doric and Corinthian columns, six-panel curved doors, and a stunning skylight. Once you're done inside, head out to the expansive gardens and savor the sights and smells of the delightful flowers, trees, and shrubs. Take shade under the largest and oldest sycamore tree in the city of Savannah, and enjoy scenic views of the historic Talmadge Bridge from the belvedere. Check out the pavilion, reflective ponds, a vine-covered pergola, a rondelle, an assembly room, and one of only two remaining early 20th-century weather kiosks in the United States, which resembles a Greek Revival Temple. The Ships of the Sea Museum is among 150 other historic places in the US that are members of the National Trust for Historic Preservation Distinctive Destination Program.
