The Mob Museum, the National Museum of Organized Crime & Law Enforcement, is a world-class destination in downtown Las Vegas. Housed in the very first U.S. Post Office and Courthouse in Las Vegas, the building was restored and re-purposed to bring you the thrilling story of org...
For an unconventional day out, treat your group to an excursion unlike any other - the entire museum is available to rent for private parties, corporate events, or just because you don't like crowds.
Find the floor this particular artifact appears on.
Discover such artifacts as the barber chair in which Albert Anastasia was assassinated in 1957 and a revolver found at the scene of the Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre.
On the 3rd floor -- in the prohibition section -- make sure you wait until the movie stops & screen goes up. An artifact will be revealed.

The Funk House sold the Mob Museum Store some of the props/antiques they have! Check it out
Ahh, Las Vegas' obsession with organized crime and murderous thugs knows no bounds. Gift shop is over priced, but staff is super nice.
The Las Vegas Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, or Mob Museum for short, is slated to open in February of 2012.
Interesting. 3 floors and they recommend an hour on each one. Downtown near Freemont Street. Glad we came to it.
The federal courthouse where the 1950 Kefauver Hearings on Organized Crime were held is now a museum dedicated to the history of mobsters. Among the exhibits are real weapons used by Mafia hit men.
The Mob Museum (originally a Courthouse & Post Office) was built in 1933 - the last year of prohibition. Work crews built a Gin bottle into a west side wall trying to cover up their drinking.
Fall Speaker Series Line-up: A former undercover FBI agent, a global organized crime tracker and a legendary crime-fighting attorney. Tickets for 9/19, 10/17 & 11/13 lectures on sale at box office.
Great history! Many graphic photos...not for small kids.
Take a bit of the family business home with you - Las Vegas and Godfather editions of Monopoly, casino-precision dice and a deluxe, clay-chip poker set are available for purchase in the on-site store.
Try the weapons training simulator on the first floor.
Great speakers scheduled for this year. The membership is quickly recovered in a couple of visits to the Museum or the events. Always recommend this place.
We loved this place, it was interesting and I love that there is a lot of hands on activities. Great job.
Did you know there's a steel plate in the judge's bench in the historic courtroom. It was meant for the judge to duck behind should gunfire erupt.
Give yourself at least two hours to view all exhibits.
It's like Disney for mobs. The attention to detail is amazing. If you are fascinated with mobsters and the mafia definitely check this out.
Forget about it
Fun, fun! :)
This gives a comprehensive account of the origins and growth of organized crime in America. It is a must see for anyone interested in interactive history. Reminds me of a Smithsonian museum.
$19.95 General Admission, $15.95 Seniors (65+), Military, Law Enforcement, Teachers, $13.95 Children (5-17 years) & Students (18-23 years)
Psst. Few people know this, but upon restoring the building for The Mob Museum a gin bottle was found in a 3rd floor wall. The building was built in 1933 -- the last year of prohibition.
The lectures and speaking events are AWESOME! There's a lot of benefits to becoming a member and it's only $25 for the year! Love this place.
All this exploring make you wanna work here? Well get out your cameras, the time's drawing near. Make your WOW face at our future HQ, Instagram it with #zapposhunt #dtlv & your quest will be through!
that's all folks
Fun games for the whole family
Don't go if you know anything about the mob or mafia. Save your money or donate it but most stuff is general knowledge.
Be prepared for an information overload. Have to make two trips to really experience the museum. Loved it!
Take your time discovering
If you really want to see some object from that era, this is the place.
It started out pretty fun. But, barely into my visit there was a "suspicious package" found. I didn't get to see the museum and the museum refuses to give me a refund. It is a mob museum.
Great museum. It has three floors, take a longer time. And you can buy tickets from the Neon Museum + MOB Museum for $ 30
Once you buy your tickets you get a wristband that allows you to leave and come back. Great if you want to catch a bite but don't want to rush through the exhibits.
Watch all of the movies as you go through the museum. They are more interesting than the actual exhibits.
There's a reason this was voted as Best Museum in NV Mag. Incredibly well done & informative, tech is put to good use making the experience fun & immersive. Well worth the visit to Fremont alone.
This is a really informative piece of history. I strongly recommend checking this place out. The good thing is that when you pay admission, it will allow you in/out flexibility on same day visit.
Discounts for Military, Police and Teachers. Way to go. Find a coupon for $2.00 off to use. Try not to drive it cost $5.00 to park at the Museum. But it is a neat place to spend a few hours.
Adults 19.95. Well worth it.
This building use to be the old post office.
Lots of cool things to see here. The wall from the St. Valentine's Day massacre (complete with bullet holes) and other items from the Prohibition era.
The mob museum is packed with information. It was very active and had lots of interactive displays. I loved it and I'm not a mob fanatic like some. Great way to enjoys an hour or so!
This is a great Vegas activity that does not involve gambling or drinking. Well worth the time!
Muito bom isso vvhhhh
