The Mob Museum
The Mob Museum Review
It's fitting that the new, $42-million Mob Museum sits in the circa-1933 former federal courthouse and U.S. Post Office downtown; this is where the Kefauver Committee held one of its historic hearings on organized crime in 1950. Today the museum pays homage to Las Vegas' criminal underbelly, explaining to visitors (sometimes with way too much exhibit text) how the mafia worked, who was involved, how the law brought down local mobsters, and what happened to gangsters once they were caught and incarcerated. Museum highlights include bricks from the wall of the St. Valentine's Day Massacre in 1929, and a mock-up of the electric chair that killed mobsters including Julius and Ethel Rosenberg.
