“If you like/enjoy history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

This place was amazing, alot about the mob and Vegas. There is three floors of soo much information and facts. I recommend that you have time to do this. We were told that it takes about an hour a floor. I believe it took us about 2 hours...sooo worth it.

“Top Notch Museum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

This museum is located in downtown LV near the Main Street Hotel and Casino. Exhibits were unique, detailed, and compelling. Some displays were graphic so if you are squeamish or have young kids, you may want to pass on this... There are many interactive activities.We spent over 2.5 hours here and still did not see all there is to see. Well worth the price of admission. I intend to go back and visit again on my next stop at Vegas.

“The museum was developed by the attorney for the Mob. He represented the parties for 30 years.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

The short films and interactive displays were fun and interesting. The museum speaks to the problems with proving that a mob existed. Participants enter a real court room and watch Congressional hearings on the matter. Lots of fun.

“Fascinating but LONG”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

We could have spent hours and hours in here. Very interesting. Great bookstore. Packed with so much information you could spend days there. The docent on staff that day suggested lunch in between floors and he was right! Would definitely go back - you can't absorb everything available in one trip.

“Excellent museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

My wife and I spent about three hours there, along with a local friend, and really enjoyed the museum. It is very well done and comprehensive. The great value is that it links together events and stories one has heard over a lifetime to create an understandable narrative.
