If you have even the slightest bit of interest in the Mob , you should spend a couple hours here . A lot of really good information , some interactive learning , good videos and a piece of the wall from the St. Valentines day massacre

Three levels jammed packed with displays and mob history. We spent 3+ hours here and couldn't have spent longer. Very, very interesting!

it was very interesting to read about all the mobsters. I would have liked to have had a larger section on the law enforcement that helped take them down.

Housed in a 1030's post office, courthouse building, there is plenty of historical information in this place. It is a self paced process over three floors, no headsets, so it's all reading at your own pace, or watching short movies. The building itself is a neat old federal building, with the original warehouse wall from the St Valentines day massacre,... More

We planned a visit to this museum on our last day in Vegas, before driving home. Since it's always been known that the Mob had a hand in building Las Vegas into the 'Sin City' it is, we expected a lot of displays illustrating just exactly that history. But nope, this is a full-blown Mob Museum, showing the history of... More

My husband and I went with my parents to check out the museum on a Sunday. I'm not a huge mob fan, but I'm a history fan, so I like to learn about the past. There is alot of stuff jam packed into this museum. Not only about the mob, but the history of Vegas. We purchased tickets on-line for... More

If you liked Boardwalk Empire you will love to visit this museum! The history of organized crime in the US and the history of Las Vegas are fascinating. Prepare to spend at least 2 hours there! I plan to go again the next time I visit Las Vegas.

This is THE best museum if you're interested in the detailed factual history of organised crime, and also the justice sought by law enforcement throughout the eras. The centrepiece of the museum is the actual courtroom where mobsters were tried during the infamous Kefauver hearings and there is a great presentation inside the courtroom. It gave me goosebumps knowing that... More

Excellent place to visit and very reasonably priced. Lots of history and nostalgia here. Make sure you allow at least 2 hours visit here. Can be a bit overawing for people who do not reside in the US.
