    I've seen lots of posts in re to the Mob Museum...there's two of 'em.
    This one gets the best reviews and I've included some tips (with her okay)
    from a friend of mine you might find helpful.

    The Mob Museum
    300 Stewart Ave.
    Las Vegas, 89101
    www.themobmuseum.org

    Myself, Mr. CLV & Mr. & Mrs. O2bnvegas, spent last Sun. afternoon at the Mob Museum, and we all really enjoyed it. Very educational. Never knew how much the MOB infiltrated Most of America. omg

    Costs approx. $18 pp, $14 for Seniors over 65 (although it doesnt' say it on the marquee)

    ** for 2 Adult entries costs $36

    ** BETTER DEAL---for a Lifetime membership for One person, and only costs $10 for second person, Costs $35 -----THIS is the way to go if there are 2 of you going in!!!!

    So Now, I have a Lifetime mem. and can bring friends in for $10 ea. (which is the Locals rate.) GOOD Deal.

    MM is 3 stories high, and FILLED with Info, and displays. You can easily spend several hours in there.
    Our feet were getting tired, so we decided to end this trip, but would be happy to go back again.

    We parked at MSS self parking. Costs $3 but you get reimbursed for bringing your receipt to the MSS cashier window. Worked out great, we were going there anyway.
    All of us were hungry when we got out of Mob, and I remembered all the great meets we had at 777,
    so we ate there. Food was ALL GOOD. So, something to think doing, after a trip to the MOB.

    I don't think so. I think there's the Mob Museum and the Mob Experience and most posts I've seen here have been pretty specific about what they're asking opinions of....:peace:

    There is no Lifetime membership available - I signed up for the same exact deal two weeks ago and it is a one year membership where you can get in for free and get in others for the $10 local rate. However you must renew your membership for another year when the time is up.

    Thanks for the update you guys...I really don't have a clue.
    Many folks just say Mob Museum. I knew about the Trop and
    downtown, but as I said...haven't been to any and don't have
    much interest either.

    I can't speak on the Mob Experience because I didn't go, but I did go to the Mob Museum last Wednesday and if you enjoy mob history and Vegas history it is absolutely incredible. I spent over 3 hours there encompassing the 3 floors of the museum, there are several interactive exhibits along with listenting to real wire taps, incredible. I highly recommend it but I am a big mafia/gangster fan/historian, at least as much as you can be at age 31.

    The Mob Museum is one of the most popular places in Vegas to visit besides maybe Caesar's Palace and other great casino hotels. I hope the people who haven't seen it yet love it.

    How far of a walk is the Mob Museum from the Golden Nugget?

    Thanks,

    Attended the Mob Museum last night. The old fed building is a nice setting for it. The displays are interesting and many are interactive. Get in some Line Up photos and sit in the Electric Chair. I got in for $10 by showing my Seasonal Nevada I.D.

    We had hoped to get there last month, but our week just flew by. I am glad to see the positive reviews; next time we will make it a point to visit if we don't do anything else. Well that isn't quite true.
