  • Very informative and a bit funny at times too. The 2 guides we had were both lovely and not snooty at all about their superior intelect on the subject. They seemed genuinely excited to share their knowledge with you. Tip: Bring Cash or Buy Tickets Online. They do not take credit cards in the museum.
  • Not too fond of tours, but this was different. A very cool experience. The guide was very lively and added something special to the tour.
  • My group and I took the tour while visiting friends in NYC, and this was one of my favorite parts of our trip. The fellow who gave us our tour did an amazing job and was quite knowledgeable. I recommend this to anyone with even a slight interest in America's prohibition and organized crime. The building the museum is in, is a story itself.
  • We have learned a lot about gangsters in NYC. Very interesting story about the owner in 1930-1940. I won't tell , I want people to visit .
  • Not quite what I expected. The stories were interesting, though. The place looks like it was shut down. Tour was cool but seemed a bit biased (for a lack of better words). Glad I caught this deal on Groupon as opposed to full price for two. FYI: This is my personal opinion.
