Yup, Vegas finally has a serious history museum downtown. The Tropicana's Mob Attraction is entertainment, but this downtown heavyweight is all about the real story of both gangsters and the Feds who tracked 'em down. It's inside the historic courthouse building where the Kefauver hearings happened back in the day. Parking costs $3, or park in a casino lot or garage instead and just walk over to the museum. It's two blocks north of the Fremont Street Experience.
A good 2 to 3 hour visit. Well worth admission !!
Since I heard this place was going to open, I've been wanting to go. It's a museum about the mob. And it's in the courtroom where the Kefauver trial actually happened years ago in Vegas. What more do you need.Now I know, for what it is, it might seem a bit pricey, but if this stuff interests you, it'll be worth the money and your time.Their website recommends giving yourself at least 3 hours of time to go through everything. Make the time. Give yourself extra time. Don't try to squeeze this in with a bunch of other stuff. You'd be surprised how time flies.There are plenty of exhibits and video. Interviews and pictures. There are tons of artifacts for you to look through. There is also a gun shooting simulation room which is kinda fun if you've never shot a gun before.
Huge Museum Give yourself more than 2 hours to see everything!
This is not an archival museum. It is not a place to research documents, biographies or old newspaper clippings. However the displays are an amazing reminder of the role of the mob, not only in Las Vegas but in America. Well worth an hour or so of your time.
Pricey but full of information and history. If you are into this you can spend the entire day there. However, it's a lot of reading.
Interesting. But, lots of repetition.
Kind of cool Interactive. Had comp tickets. Not sure I would have liked it as much if I would have had ot pay for it.
Visited the Mafia Museum, mainly with pictures and video materials to show the history of the development of the American Mafia since 1900 and how the U.S. government rectifies the Mafia, which is bloody, but it does see a lot of things that can not be seen in peacetime.
Gangster Museum is a very famous comprehensive museum in Las Vegas. It's suitable to bring your partner with you. It's rich in content. It's worth seeing. Looking at the comments on the internet, it's good or bad. I've personally experienced it before I tell you my true feelings.
