The Mob Museum, the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, earned the No. 7 spot on Las Vegas Weekly’s list of “Twenty Greatest Attractions in Las Vegas History,” a roster of the most prestigious attractions in and around Las Vegas. The accolade comes on the heels of the Museum’s No. 20 U.S. Museum ranking in the 2017 TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice awards. Earlier this year, the Museum earned accreditation by the American Association of Museums (AAM), the highest national recognition conferred upon U.S. museums.
“We are extremely proud that at just five-and-a-half years old, The Mob Museum continues to garner high praise from publications and organizations within and outside of Las Vegas,” said Jonathan Ullman, executive director, The Mob Museum. “We are committed to delighting our guests on every visit, with our constantly changing exhibits and programs.”
This month, the Museum also received a “Best of Las Vegas” award from the Las Vegas Review-Journal in the “Best Museums” category, a recognition it has received numerous times.
The Mob Museum offers a provocative, contemporary look at topics related to organized crime through hundreds of artifacts and immersive storylines. Since opening in 2012, The Mob Museum has accumulated numerous accolades, including being named one of USA Today’s “12 Can’t Miss U.S. Museum Exhibits,” “A Must for Travelers” by The New York Times, one of “20 Places Every American Should See” by Fox News and Budget Travel magazine, “Best Museum” by Nevada Magazine and is a multi-year winner of the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s “Best of Las Vegas” rankings.
The Mob Museum has been awarded accreditation by the American Alliance of Museums, the highest national recognition afforded U.S. museums. Admission is $23.95 for adults ages 18 and over with special pricing for online purchase, children, seniors, military, law enforcement, Nevada residents, and teachers. The Museum is open daily.
