Most everyone has been to a museum at some point in their lives. Impressions of them vary from loving them to being boring. I have been to several museums in my life and have to say the Mob Museum in Las Vegas is hands down my favorite!
It’s a great way to get inside away from the 100-degree temperatures in the middle of the day. There are three floors of displays, video, interactive displays as well as tying the story between law enforcement and organized crime and particularly in Las Vegas.
You start off taking an elevator to the third floor and begin with a”lineup photo”. Tell me this photo alone is not worth the price of admission for and Bachelor or Bachelorette party! Even the photographers are dressed up and ready to get your mug shot!
There were numerous artifacts and displays that capture everyone’s attention. There was Tommy guns, brass knuckles to ballistic vests and training simulators. There was even a courtroom setup! The best part is the displays told the story of both sides of the story. There were videos to break up reading panel after panel which creates boredom. They even had the Valentines Day Massacre Wall along with a video giving the feeling of what it was really like.
We spent two hours inside the museum and did not even realize it had been that long! I was with a group of guys and they were ready to take off and get lunch after a couple hours. Anyone interested in the mob, organized crime, history and law enforcement could stay there for hours and find it fascinating, I did! I plan on taking Tammilee on our next trip to Las Vegas.
