Had a wonderful time at the Gangster Museum. I learn a lot about the history of the town. How many gangsters come to Hot Springs to 'relax' and not be bothered by the law. The history is incredible. Wish we could have had more time...More

Tour only. Takes roughly an hour. Your guide moves you through various themed (local gangsters, Al Capone, New York connections, etc.), with some commentary, followed by a video. It is informative, but the format is limiting and the price seemed a little high. It could...More
