The Panhandle Prohibition Exhibition

October 17, 2020- July 16, 2022 Furniture Gallery

On January 17, 1920, a new day dawned for most of the USA as the 18th Amendment went into effect. Americans could no longer manufacture, sell, or transport alcoholic beverages. The Temperance movement took Texas early but now had an impact on the rest of the US from organized crime to underground bars to fashion of the day.

The Panhandle Prohibition Exhibition takes you back to the Texas Panhandle in the 1920s. Learn the diversity of music and opinions in our very own recreated speakeasy complete with augmented reality and get your very own mugshot. Understand fashion, consumerism and politics of the day while listening to some great jazz.
