Organized Crime Today
The Mob Museum has always dedicated significant time and effort into telling the stories of organized crime’s history. With our new expanded Organized Crime Today Exhibit, now open, we are able to share with our guests the story of organized crime today, in addition to its past.
Why this exhibit?
Organized crime looks very different today than it did in the preceding century. But the primary motivation is the same: money. From Europe to South America, Africa to Asia, organized crime continues to rack up countless victims and threaten the integrity of public institutions. The exhibit examines the major criminal rackets such as drug trafficking, weapons trafficking, money laundering and cybercrime, as well as the syndicates responsible for them around the world.
What is in this exhibit?
The Organized Crime Today exhibit uses graphics, artifacts and interactive features to show and explain the global reach of organized crime in the 21st century and how law enforcement agencies are adapting to combat it. A 16-foot-wide touch screen enables guests to learn about the world of organized crime today through an array of videos, photos and maps.
Where is this exhibit located?
This new exhibit is on the Museum’s first floor, near the Use of Force Training Experience and the Museum’s retail store.
