Fodor's Expert Review Mob Attraction Las Vegas
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Since it opened in 2010, this mafia-themed attraction inside Tropicana Las Vegas has been plagued by poor technology, controversial exhibits, and flagging visitation. When The Mob Museum opened up Downtown, the plight only got worse. Nevertheless, history buffs will appreciate artifacts such as the diary of mobster Meyer Lansky, Tony "The Ant" Spilotro's gun, and family photos and home movies from other infamous criminals. Visitors can interact with life-size holograms of chatty gangsters and have a chance to get "made." The museum itself is about a 10-minute walk from the main entrance of the casino.
