The museum itself is normally free admission, but the tours are $20 a person. The whole experience is great, primarily due to the guides! Otherwise, the avg person would have a hard time putting together the info pasted on the walls.

I wasn't sure what to expect but absolutely loved my experience! The tour was incredible. I'll say this, when I first walked in, I was a bit skeptical. We were late to the tour by a couple of minutes so I was happy when we were included. You can't do this Museum without the tour, in my opinion. When I walked in, I saw that it was only two rooms with lots of pictures on the wall. The pictures weren't even that professional looking. Although there were some other items behind glass, I was concerned for the first few minutes that I had made a mistake. I also remember questioning why the Museum was set up this way, as there was so much potential. Halfway through, I was enthralled. The stories come to life, all because of our wonderful tour guide. You could tell that there was so much more that could be discussed. She took the pictures and the few pieces and made a memorable experience. The last 20 minutes are so was the best part, as we learned the backstory of the building and the relevance to the Museum. I highly recommend this! Make sure you get there for the tour.

Long tour (~2 hours) but very interesting! Mimi shared a wealth of knowledge about gang history in NY and beyond. The location really a piece of history! So glad as a New Yorker to have learned about it. Thank you!

About Museum of the American Gangster

Housed in a former speakeasy, the Museum of the American Gangster isn’t obvious on a casual stroll down St. Mark’s Place. If visitors know to look for number 80, though, they pass through a black gate and up a flight of stairs, where a plethora of artifacts and exhibits awaits. The museum focuses on American organized crime through the decades, which includes profiling mob bosses, Prohibition-era gangsters, serial bank robbers, and dastardly Scooby-Doo villains. The New York Times praised co-owner and tour guide Lorcan Otway as "so encyclopedic that touring the rooms takes an hour," as he expounds upon America's unique relationship with hedonism and straight-laced morality. In the Wall Street Journal, correspondent Alexandra Cheney mentions noteworthy finds including the museum's genuine Tommy guns, vintage whiskey bottles, and old copper stills.
