Las Vegas Tour with the Mob Museum
Saturday, April 7
Canceled for 2018
South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa To destination and return via private bus
Depart for a Las Vegas City tour as we drive down the strip to Fremont Street to see the sights of Vegas. You will hear all about Las Vegas hotels and insider Vegas stories. Las Vegas has approximately 150,000 hotel rooms and in 2016, over 6,310,616 convention delegates visited during the 21,864 conventions that were held in Vegas.
Your next stop is The Mob Museum which provides a world-class, interactive journey through true stories. From the birth of the Mob, to today's headlines with shadows and whispers, you'll learn about G-Men and Made Men. Enjoy your guided tour through the museum to learn about the history and future of crime. It's fitting that the $42 million Mob Museum sits in the circa-1933 former federal courthouse and U.S. Post Office downtown; this is where the Kefauver Committee held one of its historic hearings on organized crime in 1950. Today the museum pays homage to Las Vegas's criminal underbelly, explaining to visitors how the Mafia worked, who was involved, how the law brought down local mobsters, and what happened to gangsters once they were caught and incarcerated. Museum highlights include bricks from the wall of the St. Valentine's Day Massacre in 1929, and a mock-up of the electric chair that killed a number of mobsters (as well as spies Julius and Ethel Rosenberg).
