Opened on February 14, 2012 - the 83rd anniversary of the St Valentine’s Day massacre - the museum is located in the heart of downtown and is part of the renaissance making downtown Las Vegas a destination in its own right. A quick journey from the Strip will get you right to the front door of the Mob Museum Las Vegas, and whether you’re newly interested in organized crime or are a devoted watcher of Goodfellas and The Godfather, you’ll find its interactive exhibits fascinating.
