Prohibition ended on Dec. 5, 1833, with the repeal of the 18th amendment, which prohibited the manufacturing, distribution and the selling and consumption of alcohol in the U.S.
Of course, this law had the opposite effect of its do-gooders intentions, leading to speakeasies with smugglers and crime bosses controlling the supply of the alcohol.
The Alcatraz East museum is cashless, so tickets can be purchased ahead of time online or through non-cash options at the ticket booth. The last tickets are sold 60 minutes before closing. For more information about the Repeal Day Celebration visit the Facebook event page.
