After more than a decade of fundraising, planning and development, the National Museum of Organized Crime & Law Enforcement—better known as the Mob Museum—opens on Feb. 14. Located in the former U.S. post office and federal courthouse on Stewart Ave., in the Downtown 3rd neighborhood, the museum features an interactive look at the history of organized in America.
Exhibits cover every aspect of the mob, including law enforcement efforts to defeat organized crime, the role of Las Vegas in the mob’s history, how the mob changed the face of crime and, of course, stories of notable figures like Al Capone, Tony “The Ant” Spilotro, Bugsy Siegel and Frank “Lefty” Rosenthal.
Tickets are $18 for adults, $12 for children under 17 and $14 seniors. Nevada residents get in for just $10. The Mob Museum opens at 10 a.m. daily, closing at 7 p.m. on weeknights and 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
