Roses are red, this museum is free for Nevadans on Valentine’s Day

Updated February 13, 2024 - 3:51 pm

One of Las Vegas’ unique venues is giving Nevadans a chance to look inside its walls for no charge.

The Mob Museum is offering free admission to residents of the Silver State on Feb. 14 to celebrate its 12th anniversary. Nevada residents will need to show ID to take advantage of this offer. Everyone else will be able to enjoy a buy-one, get-one-free offer.

The museum, located on Stewart Avenue in downtown Las Vegas, will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. that day. Two Thompson submachine guns (also known as Tommy guns) used in the 1929 St. Valentine’s Day Massacre in Chicago will be on display. And reformed mobster Frank Calabrese Jr. will tell stories about life with the infamous Chicago Outfit.

The Mob Museum is also the Review-Journal’s partner in producing the award-winning podcast “Mobbed Up: The Fight for Las Vegas.” The latest season focuses on former mob attorney Oscar Goodman, who later served three terms as mayor of Las Vegas.
