Las Vegas Museum Tours
Mob Museum / Neon Museum
The Mob Museum provides a world-class, interactive journey through true stories. From the birth of the Mob, to today’s headlines. Shadows and whispers. G-Men and Made Men. Whether you like it or not, this is American history. This eye-opening, authentic view of organized crime’s impact on the world reveals an insider’s look at the events and characters of the continuing battle between the Mob and the law.
The museum offers a wide array of sections addressing the Mob’s involvement in illegal activities such as gambling, drugs, prostitution or bootlegging and the efforts of the law enforcement to counteract and eliminate those criminal operations. Additionally the visitor is able to view some rarely accessible material, for example the photographs of victims of the most famous murders credited to the Mafia (appropriately named “Mob’s Greatest Hits”; these are quite graphic in nature, because they show the actual corpses of the deceased), as well as pictures and short biographies of the most popular and notorious gangster personalities. A special Wall located near the exit depicts images of all the actors, who portrayed well-known Mobsters in movies or series. A significant number of exhibits are interactive; there are also several stations situated throughout the Museum, where relevant film footage is played on a loop.
We’ll visit the famous Neon Museum or “Boneyard” as we call it in Vegas. This outdoor display features signs from old casinos and other businesses from the old days when these were on the strip. Pieces in the boneyard include signage from the Moulin Rouge Hotel, the Stardust, Desert Inn and Caesars Palace as well as many others. The museum also houses fiberglass sculptures including a giant skull from the Treasure Island Hotel and Casino.
After 4 hours touring these interesting Vegas cultural landmarks we’ll head back to your hotel.
