  • Wow! This is a must see. Put it on your list of things to do. They have guided tours and SO knowledgeable. The information in the last room gets updated almost daily. Worth the extra money for the guided tour. They offer discounts for teachers, military, and 1st responders. They have a crime lab and 'experiences' that are fun for adults and kids. The gift shop had the coolest selection which included loaded dice, a pencil holder made of a real gun barrel. We had a ton of fun while learning.
  • This place is truly amazing. You will definitely have to come here multiple times. There is just too much to see and do. It just packed with information and entertainment. All ages can enjoy this place. So cool it's actually the old courthouse. Very rich in history. A must see for everyone.
  • Super awesome museum and probably one of my favorite things to do so far when I come down and visit my family. They have annual passes so they are always down to go. I went today and not going for like a year and it was awesome how much more they had added and really advanced in. They had a special area for forensic evidence almost like a crime lab. They had four skulls that were replicated and she would have is guess what the cause of death was based on the detailing of the skull. Super interesting and they were recreated from actual skulls!
  • My hubby and I had such an amazing time here. They made some great changes since I last came 3 years ago. I am excited about the Speak Easy opening up soon. Now we have something to look forward to upon returning. The museums mix of artifacts, evidence and real live simulations definitely make this the best museum I have ever been to.
  • The Mob Museum is very interesting experience. The information presented is fascinating and the way it's laid out has a reasonable flow to it. But you're in far too close of quarters. The whole exhibit consists mainly of walking down small hallways and standing in small rooms. Really small rooms. And so you're constantly having to avoid bumping into other patrons while trying to get a look at what you wanted to see. I also felt the prices were a little steep, especially for tourists. I understand that tourism makes up the majority of income in Las Vegas and that this can upset some people, but I was not pleased to be asked to pay twice as much for my ticket just because I was from out of town.
