Hoosiers and their Hooch at the Discovery Center

April 10 at 9:00 am - May 13 at 4:30 pm

Event Navigation

The exhibit spans the dawn of the temperance movement of the 1900s, the roaring 1920s and the unprecedented repeal of a constitutional amendment during the Great Depression. The sights, sounds and experiences of the time period are brought to life by images and graphics from IHS’s collections.

In addition, the era’s conflicting cultures are demonstrated through colorful historic figures such as Edward S. Shumaker of the Indiana Anti-Saloon League, as well as the bootleggers, moonshiners and bathtub gin distillers who found their way around the law in Indiana.

The end of the exhibit gives visitors an update on what has happened between 1933 and the present day, demonstrating the effects prohibition has had on Indiana’s regulatory landscape and how it is represented in modern culture. Hoosiers & Their Hooch: Perspectives on Prohibition is made possible by Kroger.

April 10 – May 13 Monday – Saturday 9:00 am – 4:30 pm and Sunday 12:30 pm – 4:30 pm

Exhibit is free with admission to the Discovery Center.
