Learn the History of the Prohibition Era with This Fascinating Exhibit

Step back in time with the traveling exhibition from the National Constitution Center now on display at the Upcountry History Museum! Entitled Spirited: Prohibition in America, this new show is presented in partnership with the National Endowment for the Humanities and transports visitors back to the time of flappers and suffragists, bootleggers and temperance lobbyists, and real-life legends such as Al Capone and Carry Nation.

The exhibit explores the history of Prohibition with immersive environments that encompass the sights, sounds, and experiences of this fascinating period in American history. Through the exhibition, visitors learn about the amendment process, the changing role of liquor in American culture, Prohibition's impact on the roaring 20s, the changing role of women, and why current liquor laws vary from state to state. Come explore the fascinating facts of 1920s America as the country was split between "wets" and "drys," speakeasies flourished, legal authorities gave chase to gangsters, and people creatively discovered ways to circumvent the law. It’s a captivating and entertaining display, so make sure you see it at the Upcountry History Museum!
