Additional Information

Calling all you guys and dames - Midway Village Museum's newest temporary exhibition, "Roaring in Rockford," is one you don’t want to miss!

Did you know Rockford was a hot spot of activity throughout the 1920s? In this exhibition visitors can learn about the secret underbelly of speakeasies and giggle water that emerged as a result of prohibition, view a sampling of hip to the jive fashion trends and accessories, discover the stories of a few local suffragists who aided in the ratification of the 19th Amendment, and find out about the technological advancements made by multiple Rockford theaters.

A Spanish translation of this exhibition is free and available to visitors (by request) at the Admission Desk.
