This was a fabulous historic display of the "mob" throughout time, and then their links to Vegas. This was interesting and informative. We were there for over 2 hours, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. A definite 'to do' when in Vegas.

My husband and I had an afternoon with little to do and so we decided to visit the Mob Museum. We were pleasantly surprised at how well done and informative the museum was...three floors with lots of information presented in unusual ways with films, effects, etc. I would NOT take children as parts are pretty graphic.

This is a must see for anyone interested in organized crime history. This museum is very thorough in presenting the history of organized crime from Las Vegas, the five families in New York, Chicago, Atlantic city, Florida and the mid west. There are some amazing artifacts to see here: the wall from the St. Valentines Day Massacre, the Electric Chair... More

This was our third trip to Las Vegas since this museum opened and we finally made a point to go there. It was well worth it. Very interesting and well appointed in an incredibly historic building. My favourite part would definitely be sitting in the actual courtroom where the Kefauver hearings in Las Vegas were held in the 50's. The... More

If you have any interest in the mob or crime as well as law enforcement this 3 story museum is a worth while visit. The building is where some of the judicial history occurred. I was surprised how many places in Chicago and NY that had famous hits where near places I had been. It is located downtown near my... More

This is without a doubt, an interesting place to visit in Vegas, from the historic building itself, a former federal courthouse and U.S. Post Office in which the Kefauver hearings took place in 1950, to the exhibits of mob history through attractive and interactive displays, with impeccable museography. However, from the begining it clearly suggests that the cause of organized... More

I'd heard many good things about the Mob Museum but the experience was even better than I'd expected. This isn't just the best museum in Vegas, this is one of the best museums I've ever visited around the world. It is expertly curated with exceptional attention to detail. There is a ton of history here and even after a few... More

This museum is very well done. There are interactive displays and several films. It is a three floor set up with lots of history. You get to sit in the actual courtroom used in some mafia trials for one of the films. We rode the bus to get there and it was worth the trip! It took us about 2.5... More

Great museum -- almost too much! 3 floors of various multii-media presentations -- from placards and pictures to films and documentaries. Plan to spend at least a couple of hours.
