Best place to visit to learn about the history of the mob
My girlfriend and I took a trip to Las Vegas in December 2015; when she was planning the trip she asked what was something I really wanted to do or see and I immediately said the Mob Museum. Growing up raised on classic films such as The Godfather and Goodfellas and having watched The Sopranos through its entire run, I always fancied myself a mob aficionado. I was metaphorically blown away by how detailed and in depth the museum went into the history of the "underworld." Highlights include the restored courtroom and the history of the Mob's influence on the founding and forming of Las Vegas. If you go to Sin City, make it a point to spend a few hours away from the Strip and visit the Mob Museum.
Make sure you allot plenty of time for this place. Rich in history and so much to see! Very very interesting place!
This place was crazy. There’s an interactive room where you can see all about modern day rackets and organized crime. It’s 3 stories and has a neat little gift shop. The visit took maybe an hour and a half and I still didn’t see it all.
