The downtown Mob Museum announced today it will offer discounted rates to Nevada residents when it open its doors Feb. 14.

In-state residents of all ages will pay $10 plus tax to enter the museum, starting Valentine’s Day next year. Regular adult admission will be $18 plus tax and $12 for children ages 5 to 17 and students ages 18 to 23 with ID.

Seniors, military, law enforcement and teachers will get a discounted rate of $14 plus tax.

“We wanted the price to be accessible for local residents and student groups,” said Museum Executive Director Jonathan Ullman. “The museum has an educational mission and be viewed by the community as a resource.”

The 41,000-square-foot museum will include about 16,800 square feet of exhibition space on three floors, Ullman said.

“Mob Mayhem,” “The Skim” and “Bringing Down the Mob” are the museum’s three

major exhibits.

Museum hours will be from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

“We looked at roughly 15 different attractions to use as benchmarks,” Ullman said.

The museum will host several pre-opening events before it opens to the general public.

  1. These prices seem more reasonable on the surface than the Mob Experience offered. I like that they are reduced for locals.

  2. thekube,

    Yes, "The Mob Museum" is a 501-c-3 nonprofit.

    The City of Las Vegas owns the building and land. The non-profit oversees the museum's development and operation.
