The Vegas of today wouldn’t exist without the Mob of yesterday.
The vision of glitzy luxury hotels, restaurants, shows and adult indulgences was realized early by such noted Mob figures as Bugsy Siegel. The Mob’s influence shaped the city’s earliest development and played a role in its ultimate evolution as the Entertainment Capital of the World. The Mob Museum is world-class destination in downtown Las Vegas dedicated to the history of organized crime and law enforcement. The Museum presents an exciting and authentic view of organized crime’s impact on Las Vegas history and its unique imprint on the world. With stories so intriguing they need no embellishment, the Museum reveals an insider’s look at the events and people on both sides of this continuing battle.
Downtown Las Vegas, especially, is a great choice for The Mob Museum. The entire area is going through an immense revitalization with such projects as a new City Hall, The Neon Museum, the Zappos.com downtown relocation, the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health and The Smith Center for the Performing Arts. The Mob Museum will join these projects to create a cultural centerpiece for all of Southern Nevada, and provide one location to suit all tastes and moods.
