American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition Opening Weekend
Friday, October 19, 2012 – Sunday, October 21, 2012, regular museum hours
Event Admission: FREE with museum admission
Celebrate opening weekend of the world-premiere American Spirits exhibition with festivities for the entire family. During the Roaring '20s lobby show, visitors will learn all about the Prohibition era, from music and movies to literature and politics. Guests will have an opportunity to try on period clothing, learn the steps to the most popular dances from the Jazz Age, and even create their own tiles for mahjong -- a game that was all the rage in the '20s!
American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition has been made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor.
