    Visited the Mob Museum with our teenage son. The 3 of us all enjoyed it tremendously. Nice mix of film clips and exhibits. Interesting all the way around.  more »

    We had a WONDERFUL time visiting this museum last week! It is also known as the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement and is located in the original Las Vegas courthouse and post office. The building is really beautiful both inside and out (I especially liked the exterior and the interior of the courtroom). The museum takes up 3 full stories of the building, it is ADA compatible. There are MANY places to sit down to rest while still enjoying the many exhibits, Besides many, many photos and written explanations of what you are looking at there are quite a few VIDEO displays. This museum is appropriate for people from young teens (provided they are given some perspective prior to their visit) through seniors. Included with admission is a wristband that allows you to leave (for a meal or a break) and then return. Parking is $6/vehicle so I would recommend carpooling if possible.

    What a comprehensive, educational and comfortable hidden gem! Split into three levels incorporating criminal syndication history and the evolving government agencies, this place flows smoothly. Exhibits have short films, artifacts, touch screens, interactive displays and an excellent gift shop to boot. It's so interesting and varied, you forget you're learning. The staff is friendly and very well educated! Very well done!

    Cool place if you like gangster stuff! We were there 3 hours and could have stayed another hour. But couldn't because they had to close. Didn't realize it would be so interesting! A little expensive at the door, but used a $8 coupon and was so worth it! Lots of reading and movies, So not for little kids. Plan 4 hrs to enjoy. Gift shop too!

    Extremely information dense! If you want a huge dose of history this is the place to go. Plan on having a like two hours to get through the entire museum. Has a great mix of interactive, multimedia exhibits and also has cool history artifacts like the wall from the Valentine's Day Massacre and Al Capone's pistol. It's a great museum that covers all of mob history and is a great break from the Strip.

    THIS IS A MUST SEE!! First fun fact is that this museum is housed in the original Clark County Federal building. They have preserved the courtroom where much of the Mob trials we're conducted. The overall experience is amazing and the artifacts and presentation is great. This museum literally takes you on a journey from the beginning of the Mob through current day. Again I say it is a MUST see!
