One of the most exciting components of The Mob Museum is the historic courthouse where the Kefauver hearings were held in the 1950’s. Visitors enter the old courtroom and take their seats. The lights dim. A hush falls upon the audience. Early footage flickers on the screen. These hearings changed public opinion and laws regarding organized crime.
The museum is a visual history of both sides of the law: law enforcement and criminals. The interaction between visitor and exhibit makes The Mob Museum so much more than a “ho-hum” experience. But…Beware! some of the pictures can be gory.
You will recognize the names of notorious mobsters…. Al Capone, Meyer Lansky, Mickey Cohen to name just a few.
