Prohibition and Kentucky: this exhibition brings the 1920's to life & shows how millions of otherwise law-abiding Americans chose to violate the national alcohol ban to quench the country's thirst for illegal booze.

Lewis & Clark Experience: this exhibition features a 55 foot cut-away replica of Lewis and Clark's keelboat, replica Sioux Tipi and Mandan earthen hut. Visitors can even try their hand at animal tracking and exploring "secret" passages! While this exhibit is fun for all ages, it was designed for children and families in mind.
