  • This event has passed.

One of the most ubiquitous features of the Old West was the saloon, an icon of American popular culture that has come to symbolize the rugged frontier. This summer, the Silver Dollar Saloon and Prosperity Junction take center stage during the Museum’s first “Saloon Series,” four Thursday evenings in July targeted at millennials. During happy hour, guests will experience the golden age of the saloon, hear live music, and learn about different whiskeys each week — from American bourbons, Eastern whiskeys, whiskeys from around the world, and whiskeys of the West. The program takes place from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. on July 6, 13, 20, and 27. $25 at the door includes a whiskey flight, one full drink ticket, one food ticket, whiskey class, live music, and Museum admission. Not a whiskey drinker? Museum admission, which includes access to the whiskey class, live music, and a cash bar, is just $5.

Location: Prosperity Junction
