300 Stewart Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89101, United States

A brief look at Las Vegas’s history unveils tales of organized crime and mob activity. The mid-20th century especially saw a surge in crime rate due to Vegas’s lenient gambling laws. Today, if you hear this city being called by its nickname “Sin City”, it'll be thanks to its history rooted in crime. But learning about evil is important in order to stop it from happening. That's why visiting The Mob Museum is a must in your Las Vegas itinerary!

Embark on a Fremont Street Night Walking Tour to See The Mob Museum, Golden Nugget Hotel, Container Park, and More!


What to Know 

Nestled on 300 Stewart Ave, in downtown Las Vegas, The Mob Museum (also known as the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement) is the ideal place to visit if you're interested in knowing the history of organized crime. Here you'll walk through three floors of exhibits (placed in an old federal courthouse building) which will help you understand how, when, and why the mafia came to the city and thrived.

The museum, situated just minutes away from Fremont Street, also features an interactive crime lab and firearm training aside from the mob history artifacts with the mission to advance the public understanding of organized crime. What's more? You'll find a private VIP room, speakeasy, and distillery in the underground which will give you a glimpse of Prohibition history.

How to Get There

Downtown has a free shuttle service which you can use to get to all the popular Vegas attractions including The Mob Museum. If you're on the Las Vegas Strip, an RTC double-deck bus (The Deuce) will transport you directly to this historic museum. It runs every 15 minutes, with a 24/7 service. If you also want to explore other Las Vegas hotspots, it's best to book a Walking Tour of Las Vegas which covers all the top attractions in Fremont Street District including The Mob Museum. This guided tour will start at Plaza Hotel & Casino and end at Container Park, guaranteed to give you a unique perspective on the culture and history of downtown Las Vegas.

Best Time to Visit

You can visit the museum at any time of your liking from 9 am to 9 pm daily. But if you want to avoid crowds, visit on weekdays (and mornings) because weekends naturally attract more tourists. Be sure to allow free time for the three floors of exhibits. The tour usually takes 2 hours. Buy admission tickets online to have a smooth visit.
