Educating visitors not only about the history of organized crime in America, but also about the law enforcement personnel who fought it, The Mob Museum features three floors of engaging exhibits, including high-tech theater presentations, iconic one-of-a-kind artifacts and interactive, themed environments. Located in a historic Downtown Las Vegas building which was formerly a federal courthouse and United States Post Office, The Mob Museum has enlisted the help of notable museum experts to help them present a rounded view of this chapter of American history. These are names that many people recognize from the movies, but The Mob Museum gives the real story. You'll learn about Al Capone, Tony Spilotro and Whitey Bulger, among other infamous men who once played important roles in American organized crime. This isn't a one-sided story, though, so you'll also learn about law enforcement agents like Joe Pistone, who went undercover as Donnie Brasco.
