American Spirits – The Rise and Fall of Prohibition – Last Month at Mohai


From Our Friends at Mohai:

We are about to enter the final month of  American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition at the Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI) on display through August 23rd. Created by the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, American Spirits made its West Coast premiere at MOHAI on April 2, 2015.

Since April, thousands of visitors have attended this interactive exploration of one of the most iconic eras in American history. This may be your last chance to visit but we have a full calendar of events to compliment the exhibit:


Bootlegger’s Bash.  This prohibition celebration on Friday, July 17th is a progressive party taking place at MOHAI, The Center for Wooden Boats and the Steamship Virginia V with live music, dance lessons, brewing demonstrations and more.

Speakeasy Saturdays. There are two more tastings to finish out July.

Movie in the Park. Sponsored by Amazon, MOHAI will present The Great Gatsby, (2013, PG-13) on a big screen in Lake Union Park on Saturday, August 1. Beforehand there will be a variety of family-friendly, Prohibition-era related activities including a live performance by the local swing band Easy Street.

Encore Fashion Lecture – Seattle Style in the Roaring Twenties. After a sell-out earlier in the exhibition, we have added a second lecture on August 22nd featuring our Clothing and Textile Specialist, Clara Berg who will also lead a ticketed viewing of the MOHAI costume collection.

We hope to see you there!
