“a blast from the past”

Take yourself back to the days of the 20's, 30's, and 40's when mineral water, gambling, bootlegging, and other extreme pleasures brought visitors from all over the world to Hot Springs, Arkansas. The Gangster Museum of America is an historic and entertaining account of how some of the most notorious criminals in America co-existed with the quaint population of this little valley town in the mountains of central Arkansas. The audiovisual experience of the seven galleries is in itself worth the price of admission. Play in the antique casino and hear the historian in the museum theater relate who, what, when, and where stories that are fascinating, informative, and educational.

Knowing that gangsters came to hot springs was very interesting and surprising. The tour was really informative and entertaining. We went room to room and watched short videos and saw memorabilia.

Tour was ok, watched videos that the guide basically just reiterated. Some neat items throughout the tour. Items in the gift shop can easily be purchased from the Internet for far cheaper.

Great tour, knowledgeable guide. Groovy hat shop. Tip, get the coupon from the visitors center to save a couple bucks.
