Personal belongings of Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel
Tales of organized crime have always been looked upon with fascination, and the mob’s links to the history of Las Vegas provide some of the more memorable episodes and colorful characters.. Anchored by the largest collection of authentic artifacts, memorabilia, photos and videos of organized crime ever assembled, The Las Vegas Mob Experience will open December 2010 at Tropicana Las Vegas.
The exhibit will use the latest in "interactive entertainment technology" to immerse guests in a presentation of the rise and fall of organized crime. Through first person accountings, offered by apparitions of famed gangsters themselves, visitors will be able to experience the world of organized crime and learn about the role its major players had on the building of Las Vegas, and their ultimate eradication from the casinos.
The Las Vegas Mob Experience consists of a lot more than a time line and an assortment of static artifacts. Here guests will make their way through a theatrical, interactive setting with special effects used to present this never-before-seen content. Guests of the Experience will also have the opportunity to meet the "family members" of a number of the men and women who will be highlighted throughout the exhibit.
