Visited here May 8, 2018. Very interesting tour. I did not know the wild history of Hot Springs. It was a gamblers and gangster paradise. The museum is pretty warm, not sure if it is air conditioned.

It's a little pricey but a fun museum to visit in Hot Springs if you are into the history of Gangsters, especially here in the Spa City.

Had a wonderful time at the Gangster Museum. I learn a lot about the history of the town. How many gangsters come to Hot Springs to 'relax' and not be bothered by the law. The history is incredible. Wish we could have had more time...More
