A museum? In Las Vegas? Believe it! Officially called the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, The Mob Museum is a must-see that offers a fascinating insight into the forces of corruption and violence that built Las Vegas and changed the course of American history. Housed inside the city’s old post office, the site of the infamous 1950 “Kefauver Hearings” during which the word “mafia” was heard for the first time publicly, this is a scholarly but entertaining (and occasionally disturbing) examination of a world that has come to be regarded with an almost wistful nostalgia. Be sure to check out the original bullet-riddled wall from the Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre and the collection of devices used by casino cheats.
