The Mob Museum Opens in Las Vegas

The Mob Museum, the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, opened to the public on Feb. 14 in downtown Las Vegas on the 83rd anniversary of the Chicago St. Valentine’s Day Massacre – considered by many as the most notorious hit in Mob history.

One of the Museum’s iconic artifacts is the brick wall against which the members of the Bugs Moran gang were lined up and shot and killed by members of Al Capone’s gang.

“The Mob Museum is a world-class destination created by a team of researchers and creative experts who are the best in their respective fields,” said Jonathan Ullman, executive director of The Mob Museum.

“The end result is a modern and contemporary look at a subject that continues to fascinate the world. And it’s a story that has no end because organized crime continues to evolve and impact our global economy even today.“

The Mob Museum is housed in the former federal courthouse and U.S. Post Office built in 1933 during the Hoover administration. Carefully rehabilitated to house The Museum, the building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is considered the Museum’s ultimate artifact.

The 41,000-square-foot Mob Museum includes 17,000 square feet of exhibition space on three floors in addition to a specialty retail store, special event areas, educational areas and office space.
