Information for Weddings at The Mob Museum
300 Stewart Avenue
Las Vegas, NV 89101
General Information: Get your zoot suit pressed and your tommy gun ready!Â The Mob Museum, which officially opened on February 14 2012, is recognized as the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement. It’s a few blocks north of Fremont Street in downtown Vegas housed inside a historic building, the Downtown Post Office and Federal Courthouse, built in 1933. The Museum opened with a mass wedding ceremony officiated by former Las Vegas Mayor (and former Mafia Defense Lawyer) Oscar Goodman.
The appeal here (besides being inside a truly historically important building) is that you get to hold your wedding inside the courtroom and then mingle with your wedding guests amongst the exhibits afterwards, using the props and backdrops for photos. I could go on about the truly intriguing exhibits the museum has from how the Mob “ran” Vegas for some time, to mobsters and mob busters throughout history, but this isn’t a history blog. :) For crime buffs or fans of the mob, this could be a great option, both for decor and being surrounded by legitimate gangster history. Imagine how memorable wedding photos taken in the Police Lineup Room would be…
Ceremonies can take place indoors or outdoors; in the Courthouse, front steps of the Museum or elsewhere around the property.Â Reception spaces include Board Room, First Floor Lobby, 2nd Floor CorridorÂ as well as the police lineup room, an on site Saloon or in the Courtroom, and more.
The Mob Museum is not limited to wedding day events either, they can also host rehearsal dinners, bridal showers and even a “Good Fellas Blood Oath Ceremony” themed bachelor party with actors dressed up as mafia members to “welcome you to the family.”
Capacity:Â You can buy out the entire museum if need be (400+ guests), but there are a number of alternate venues that would be great options for smaller groups betweenÂ 12-175 people. A full selection of their rooms and capacities can be found here.
Price Range: They’ll make you an offer you can’t refuse… Just kidding.
Packages start at $1,000 for the “Dressed to Kill” selection and are almost limitless from there for their full buyout package, “Luck Be A Lady”.
Packages Can Include: Working with a select set of preferred vendors (catering, entertainment and event design, for example) the Mob Museum can probably make your dream wedding come true.Â Live music, audio and lighting setups, linens, draping, cakes, floral services and more can be easily provided. They can even do Mob themed wedding favors, or set up some mobsters to show up at the ceremony.
Outside Photographers Allowed: Yes, some permits may be required
Receptions:Â Plated or buffet luncheons and dinners are available. No outside caterers allowedÂ
