The Mob Museum, officially the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, gives visitors an up-close and personal view of some of the most infamous moments and figures in the history of organized crime in the United States.

Located in the former Las Vegas federal courthouse, the museum uses its vast collection of artifacts and interactive exhibits to tell the stories of notorious gangsters such as Al Capone, Bugsy Siegel and John Gott, and the G-men and FBI agents up against them.

Some exhibit highlights include the actual wall where the Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre took place—bullet holes and all, the wiretapping recordings that brought down prominent crime bosses and more.

The museum is open daily from 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. General admission is $23.95 for adults at the box office, or $20.95 if purchased online in advance. Admission for children age 11-17 is $13.95, and free for children younger than 10 years old.
