Organized crime. Gambling. Prostitution. Murder.
Capone. Siegal. Gotti. Dillinger.
All are historic components of a mob, and their intrigue and capture is being celebrated.
The $43 million Mob Museum in Las Vegas opened Feb. 14, and the organizers promise an interactive, bold and authentic look on how mobsters impacted Sin City, the United States and the world.
The three-story, 18,000 square foot exhibit lies in the same courthouse where mob proceedings were heard. The initiative was started by former Las Vegas Oscar Goodman, a mob lawyer himself.
Further on are pictures and small tidbits of some of the most dangerous and sophisticated mobsters ever.
Pictured is Al Capone, who was seen at a football game in Chicago on Jan. 19, 1931.
