To advance the public understanding of organized crime's history and impact on American society.
The Mob Museum operates as a financially independent and self-sustaining organization that contributes to the growth and vibrancy of downtown Las Vegas. We provide accurate storytelling that portrays the roots and evolution of organized crime in America, in an authentic and entertaining manner while creating dynamic and interactive experiences that explore the criminal justice system's efforts and innovations in the fight against organized crime. The Mob Museum engages diverse audiences in discourse about social conditions, individual choices and consequences, contemporary issues and other topics that relate to organized crime. We preserve artifacts, objects, and digital records that serve as educational resources, connecting both the academic community and the general public to people and events of historical significance. We also honor the accomplishments of law enforcement by celebrating acts of perseverance and heroism in combating organized crime.
