  • I'm fascinated by Mob history so I knew i'd like the Mob Museum, but I was stunned at just how fantastic it was! The museum spans over 3 floors, and whilst at first glance it looks small, it's massive...  more »
  • I really enjoyed the mob museum. I wish I would have spent more time. I went in the evening, it was quiet, which added to the atmosphere. I would have loved to spent so much more time reading the info...  more »
  • This was our first time to the Mob Museum. It's a self guided tour with head phones. Lots of interesting displays on the history of the mob and Las Vegas. Give yourself at least 3-4 hours to properly ...  more »

  • Awesome places to visit. Leave a few hours if you want to take it all in. You get a welcome rest half way through as you watch a great presentation/show in the original court room. You can easily skip sections that have pictures that might offend some. Well worth the easily fair entry fee. It can take a while to get in as you wait to ride the elevator to the start point, but a little after the start people tend to spread out. There are a number of interactive displays.
  • This was an amazing experience. So in depth but fun and informative. I love city histories and this was a great place to learn. Easy walking distance to the Fremont Experience and plenty of parking all over. We were told it's a half hr visit, but we spent nearly 3 hours there and never got bored. So plan at least an afternoon of time if you go. Highly recommended, probably for 12 and older.
  • A great way to spend a few hours. The museum is well-organized and very informative. It does not shy away from naming politicians who might have been involved with the Mafia. There are multiple exhibits, mini videos, a courtroom drama video (shown in the actual courtroom), an interactive game, actual pictures in black and white, and so so much more. There are some actual pieces that were used in murders and other items that came from different casinos. This is a national crime museum. It covers not just Las Vegas but all points between Las Vegas and New York. There are also some modern cartel and Mafia exhibits. As we just learned, they are putting in their own distillery in the basement. So, the Mob Museum will be distilling its own moonshine and selling it in their basement bar starting after April of 2018.
  • Lots of reading! Cool facts! There is 3 floors to this building full of displays and info videos. Also a opportunity to see that one way glass looks like from both sides. The staff is very nice as well! I recommend this place but make sure you put a few hours aside to really enjoy it!
  • Three levels full of history, you can get audio to guide you for an extra payment but you won't need it. You start in the top floor and walk your way down reading, looking at photos, watching short movies and playing a few interactive games. At the end you'll understand how the mafia formed, worked and finally dissolved; they even tell you what happened to many of the known people of the time.
