We’re not exactly New York or Washington, D.C., when it comes to museum offerings. You’d have to patch all of ours together to stay busy for a day. That’s why we were blown away (pun fully intended) by the sheer magnitude of the new Mob Museum. Set up in the historic former federal courthouse and U.S. Post Office downtown, the 41,000-square-foot museum thoroughly tells both sides of the organized-crime story through a series of fascinating exhibits, artifacts and interactive features that require more than a single visit. And since tickets for Nevada residents are just $10, coming back is an offer you might not want to refuse.

Gorillaz are coming to Las Vegas for the first time ever. 2016’s Grammy winner for best new artist, Chance the Rapper, will return. English rockers Muse will bring their dizzying live show to the streets of Downtown. And that’s just the top of an eclectic bill that features more than 70 acts, along with comedy, interactive art installations, a group art exhibit featuring the work of Mark Ryden, Tara McPherson and Shepard Fairey and much more. Last year saw more than 137,000 attendees trod the festival footprint. Who’s ready for more?
