This Museum is very well organized. It takes about 4 hours to go through and details much of the history of the Mobs with updates even through the cartells today. Well worth the time!

Rhonda_B, Feb 2023
It tells a story of the history of the mob life for those who never knew what the mob was all about.
The Speak Easy was not that great. Not enough staff, no one to seat you
Sherry_T, Feb 2023
What fun! We added the Crime Lab and Fire Arm Training Simulator to our experience. The people who are over both are professional and make it fun! Also, need to give a shout out to the lady in the line up room. She was very informative. Would do go back. Our visit was a WOW!
Kristin_R, Feb 2023
The Mob Museum is very well organized and packed full of history that is relevant to the western US. It has some neat interactive exhibits and some really great videos.
I would not suggest bringing children, as some of the images and videos would not be appropriate for young eyes.
Betsy_U, Feb 2023
I think the timing of the recordings and the picture stories were on points. You were not inundated with recordings. I was not rushed; inclusive presentation; plenty of people to help you. Enjoyable and informative.
Excellent exhibition and very professional staff

At Any Cost
Mitch_M, Nov 2022
History of this country trends to repeat itself, I kept reflecting back to the book of Geneisis. Humans ability to survive at any cost, people exploiting others for personal gain is in our nature. Reflecting back again to the beginning of civilization we driven by greed, ego self worth.

The history of the FBI...
Ed_M, Oct 2022
The history of the FBI and it's apprehension of mob members was intriguing.
Each of the exhibits helped fill in areas that news and rumors had touched upon.
I recommend that if you are in Vegas.... take the tour!!

Danelle_P, Oct 2022
It was a historical journey through the mobs influence in Las Vegas and the country. The best part is The Speakeasy in the basement. Good drinks, fun atmosphere, and great live music.
