Great Museum,with lots of Interesting facts about the old days in Vegas.
Well looked after by some very helpfull staff.
To see it all it takes around 3-4 hours.
Make sure to take your time and watch all videos.
My personal favorite is the Valentines Wall.
Enjoy your visit

This is not a normal museum. Do not go here if you want a traditional, non-interactive or innovative experience! Going round the museum as a visitor it almost felt at times like you are part of a film set. You can easily spend a few hours though; there is a lot of different exhibits and reading.

I’m not sure I would recommend this for young children (or Vegas full stop) but this is definitely a unique attraction and a great place for adults to visit.

LOVE love love this place! So much fun, it was great learning about all the history of Vegas. There are locals prices (always good) and special days. Awesome events for everyone and lots of local celbrities pop in on occassion. You just never know who will stop by. Be sure to allow enough time to see the whole place. From top to bottom! Don't miss the electric chair!

A quick walk from Fremont Street. Allow yourself plenty of time because there is much to see. The wrist pass is for all day - you can return later if you need a break. This museum has only been open for a year and it is a wonderful addition to Vegas. The Mob mystique is explained well, and the courtroom upstairs hosts an informative film. Other films throughout museum with many artifacts and numerous photos. Use of the well preserved Post Office/Courthouse building was brilliant and excellent use of the space. Attractive indoors and out. Some exhibits not recommended for small children; some in our group had fun taking "lineup" photos.

Read the reviews and decided to check it out for myself. The museum was a five minute walk from Fremont Street, which was a nice bonus to avoid a cab. The exhibits were FANTASTIC!! Three floors of the evolution of the mob world. It was fascinating and very informative. Plus it was a historical nerd's dream with the actual courtroom and old artifacts. This is a must see attraction in Vegas. I'm so glad I went and I feel bad for the people in my group who missed out and chose the casinos instead.
