This is a very cool museum! We spent a decent amount of time walking through the exhibits. We also did the firearms and crime lab experience. They are very interactive but pretty short. We enjoyed the Crime Lab most. We also grabbed food and drinks in the Underground bar. I definitely recommend it. The food and drinks were excellent and the staff was really fun!
A great place to visit and learn so much I didn't even know I wanted to learn about! Helpful hint; book early on a Saturday 9-10am, for not only a discount but also it is so much less crowded. You can see and read so much more without the crowd. We did the Crime Lab experience and it was fun but probably would not do it again. You get to do 5 different lab procedures which was entertaining.
This place was awesome. I’ve been going to Vegas for 10+ years and I’m glad I finally went. We stayed for hours - it was so interesting. Dedicate half a day to come here then get a beer at one of the local downtown or art district breweries. Great diversion off the strip. Recommended, whether you’re a history or crime buff or not!
I wasn't sure if I'd enjoy this, but I went because it was included on the Go City pass. However, I found it really interesting! It talks about organized crime of all kinds, and not just the Vegas/casino history but other cities and countries too, and how a lot of the different ones are linked. Also, the speakeasy bar in the basement is awesome! The drinks were great and Kristen the bartender was very nice.
This is an excellent museum with A LOT of information and includes a lot of multimedia which makes it even better. It also has an old speakeasy in the basement which is very cool. Even better the museum is open until 9pm every day and has “happy hour” discounted tickets if you go after 5pm. This is an excellent experience if you’d like some time off the strip in Vegas.
