PROHIBITION BEGAN...
AND SAN ANTONIO KEPT PARTYING!

A historical exhibit chronicling the city of vice during the days of bootleggers, gun runners, speakeasies, & more!
San Antonio was booming during the 1920s and even though Prohibition was in effect, in true San Antonio form, the party continued! Dubbed "Little Chicago" during this time, famous mobsters like "Baby Face" Nelson, and John Dillinger made their way here to enjoy the perks of the Alamo City. San Antonio was roaring in the roaring '20s, and this exhibit surely shows it!

THE TALE OF
ROBERT JOHNSON

An exhibit featuring the famed guitarist who was said to have sold his soul to the devil, Robert Johnson.
Recording only 29 songs in his career, San Antonio has a deep-seeded connection with Johnson. On November 23rd, 1936, he recorded 13 of his 29 songs at the historic Gunter Hotel in downtown San Antonio which would later inspire future musicians such as Muddy Waters, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton and the Rolling Stones. This exhibit tells the story of Robert Johnson from birth to his untimely death and how he influenced pop culture for generations after.
