This museum is well worth your time. We went at 9 am on a Saturday and we’re the only ones in the museum for quite a while. They have a small parking lot that costs $8.00. They have a lot of cool artifacts. I would pay the extra $8.00 for the headsets. It is totally worth it.

Very detailed historical timeline of how the mob and all illegal enterprises came to be. Utterly fascinating and so well laid out. We enjoyed our time wandering the three stories that make up the museum. Many, many artifacts, videos, and photos tell the story. Worth the money and time spent there. You do need reservations and I recommend you take advantage of the “extras” offered. We did the CSI exhibit.

What an absolutely fascinating museum! You will not only learn how the mob was involved in Las Vegas, but it’s origin and continued existence! There is a lot of reading, but short films also offer information. Though I didn’t pay for the extras due to time, I think these would be amazing supplements! The museum opens at 9:00am and when I left at 11:30am, there was a line to get in. So go as early as you can. After 5:00, there is a discount and it’s open until 9:00pm. Your ticket (wrist band) is good until closing. A MUST see... only a short ride from the Strip and about two blocks from Fremont Street.

Museum is well done. It is located in a former Federal building which contained a post office and court room. Well organized depiction of both Las Vegas and national mob history. Nice mix of video, slide presentations, interactive, and static exhibits. Purchase your ticket in advance if you are able to pinpoint when you will be visiting for a fairly substantial saving on the price.

The old post office and the history behind it are really cool, the fact that it was a working courthouse was awesome too. I did feel that for what you get the museum was a little in the expensive side. There is a lot of reading, a lot of pictures and some videos. You will also see some authentic collectibles but nothing out of this world. I would recommend it to people as it is a fun thing to do just know it is a bit pricey for what you’re doing.

We really enjoyed learning about Las Vegas' early years and Prohibition time period as well as the history of the mob in Vegas. There are several pictures with captions that have many interesting facts. I enjoyed the short movies they showed. You can also purchase an audio tour as well. We purchased the Distillery experience and sampled 3 little shots of moonshine, which will put hair on your chest no matter what your age or gender. The moonshine was 100 proof by the way. After our Distillery experience we stopped by the Speakeasy and found the secret door. We sat at the bar for a drink and enjoyed the pretzel bites appetizer which was delicious. I think I will have to come back another time to see everything because I didn't have time to see everything. This is near Fremont Street and we took an Uber to get there as we stayed near the strip. The Deuce stops right outside the Museum so that is an option as well. Put this on your to do list of things to do.

It was a bit crowded even in the off season so I can’t imagine how packed it would be in the height of the tourist season.

It is also expensive. There’s the basic admission (which is all we did) and then two expensive add ons (forensic lab and firing range I think).

You get the inevitable tourist picture done but it is fun with 1920’s & 30’s mobster hats and items to wear. There is no one twisting your arm to buy a big package at the gift shop on the way out and the prices are quite reasonable.

Spent 2 hours. Lots to read and quite a number of movies. Hard to keep track when the movies are starting and stopping and found ourselves coming in the middle of a movie and having to hang around until it started again.

Lots of neat items to see too. I find this is what makes a museum is the actual items they have. This one had a gas chamber chair, tommy gun, Capone’s pistol, etc.

Gift shop had lots and lots of interesting items.

Location is in the downtown area a few blocks from the Freemont Street Experience. Parking is beside the museum for $7 for 4 hours. It was quite full in January although we got in no problem.

We were in the freemont street area, so we decided to stop by. Got tickets through travelzoo and saved about $5 each, so ended up costing us about $21.50 a ticket. The museum was informative and interesting... different presentations (videos, St. Valentine’s Day massacre wall, etc.) the store also had some fun 20s themed items, and I got a great headband for New Years.

This museum is very nice. The displays and information are well done and historically complete. I very much recommend this museum if you are in Las Vegas. They have paid parking available right next to the building - so access is quick and easy.

The Mob Museum offers a tour of how the mob was introduced to America and to Vegas. There is plenty to experience from short videos, actual mob memorabilia and interactive activities throughout. A nice touch is that they offer you a stylus so you don’t have to actually touch anything. There were areas that seemed to be more crowded than others so be aware if you are trying to avoid too many people.

Participated in the Speakeasy/Distillery tour. Jim was an expert guide. He walked us through from the beginning to the end of prohibition and how moonshine was made. Enjoyed the ambiance of the Speakeasy but the service was slow so we decided not to stay around. The Mob Museum offers something interesting and different while staying in Vegas.
