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.
Downtown Las Vegas, especially, is a great choice for The Mob Museum. Surrounded by world class restaurants and unique attractions, guests can combine a trip to the Museum with a chance to experience all of downtown.
