The Lake Wales History Museum presents a blockbuster traveling exhibit by The National Constitution Center.
Adapted from the National Constitution Center’s flagship exhibition, American Spirits, the exhibition Spirited: Prohibition in America explores the history of Prohibition, from the dawn of the temperance movement to the unprecedented repeal of a constitutional amendment in 1933. What made the country go “dry” and how did America change during this period in history. Visitors to Spirited will learn about the amendment process, the role of liquor in American culture, the cultural revolution of the roaring ‘20s, and how current liquor laws vary from state to state today.
The Lake Wales Museum is open Tuesday – Saturday from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Admission is free. Parking is free and the first floor is accessible for persons with disabilities, wheelchairs and strollers.
