Visited here May 8, 2018. Very interesting tour. I did not know the wild history of Hot Springs. It was a gamblers and gangster paradise. The museum is pretty warm, not sure if it is air conditioned.

It's a little pricey but a fun museum to visit in Hot Springs if you are into the history of Gangsters, especially here in the Spa City.
