Professor Joshua Weiss, art and art history area coordinator at Drexel University, is bound to agree.

Exhibit revists the Roaring Twenties
How much alcohol on average would you say that Americans drank every year in the 1830s? Do you think that you would be able to match them? Do you know why we have so many different mixed drinks today or why we have cruises? These questions can be answered by going to the National Constitution Center to see the “American Spirits: the Rise and Fall of Prohibition” exhibit.. It costs $16 with a student ID and less than half of that with a Bank of America Card for both the exhibit and the general entrance fee to the Constitution Center.
