Wiretap Recordings

Bugs, not bullets, brought down the Mob. Wiretapping (recording phone calls) and bugs (planting microphones) became popular law enforcement tools in the 1950s. At The Mob Museum, you can listen to recordings from major cases that brought down Kansas City crime bosses, corrupt Teamsters Union officials and New York Mafia boss John Gotti.

These items are part of the Museum’s rotating collection not currently on display.
