History Happy Hour Returns inside the National Museum of the Great Lakes

November 1, 2021 (Toledo, Ohio) On Thursday, November 18 from 5 – 7:30 p.m. the National Museum of the Great Lakes will host History Happy Hour: Rogues, Rebels, and Radicals. The after-hours event allows guests to enjoy happy hour drinks while learning more about Great Lakes historical characters who forged their own path or lived on the wrong side of the law.

“For our second History Happy Hour we decided to focus on some of the seedier individuals on the Great Lakes—lawbreakers, religious dissenters, and pirates are just a few of the characters we will be highlighting,” says Ellen Kennedy, the museum’s Education and Visitor Experience Director at the National Museum of the Great Lakes. “This time we also are partnering with Toledo Spirits to design specialty themed cocktails for the evening.”

The museum’s History Happy Hour series mixes maritime history with everyday fun by giving guests an opportunity to grab a drink and check out the museum exhibits after hours, while also providing an exclusive experience to interact with history. The event costs $30 for members or $35 for non-members and includes light snacks, specialty cocktails, beer, wine, and soft drinks, plus interactive story-telling while roaming the museum.
