As someone really interested in the Mob and Mafia, I knew I had to visit this museum whilst I was in Vegas.

It didn't disappoint at all.

Situated in 'Old Vegas', as you approach the museum, the grand building tends to impress.

As you wander around the museum, you are surrounded by facts, photos and props that are both interesting and astounding. A lot of the information is centred around the mob in Chicago as well as their influence in Vegas itself.

My particular favourite was the convict mugshots room where you could stand behind the glass with a number, mean mugging just like a real criminal boss!

Another favourite was the court room where you sat and 'took part' well listened to one of the more notorious Mafia stories.

All in all, I really enjoyed this attraction and would definitely visit again as I didn't manage to get round the whole museum before running out of time.

A must see for any Mafia/Mob "fan" for want of a better word!
