Popping the Cork on Prohibition

Experience stories of Prohibition, piety, and politics in the "wettest dry state" at this immersive new exhibit exploring Mississippi's complex relationship with alcohol—from the colonial period to today.


In the United States, Prohibition was a nationwide constitutional ban on the production, importation, transportation, and sale of alcoholic beverages beginning in 1920. For the state of Mississippi, Prohibition began in 1908—twelve years before National Prohibition became law.

Based on information provided by the Mississippi Board of Health about the coronavirus epidemic, the Two Mississippi Museums are reopening on Tuesday, July 7.
All public events are postponed.
