Travelers who are visiting Sin City and want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the Strip may want to head to the Las Vegas Mob Experience for a unique and thrilling history lesson.
The museum claims to have the largest collection of mob artifacts in the world. Guests will be able to view over 1,000 objects, such as Giancana family photos, Benjamin Siegel's '30 Packard, Tony Spilotro's gun and much more, according to USA Today.
Families who owned the artifacts sold or leased them to the museum in order to show visitors that many members of the mob were decent family men, according to Jay Bloom, the museum's managing partner. For example, mobster Meyer Lansky was given the Medal of Freedom by Harry Truman for protecting New York City's ships and his involvement with taking down Mussolini.
Visitors will enjoy the life-size holograms of the mobsters, who can interact with guests. They will be able to say their name, as well as speak their language. The museum opens on March 1 and is located in the Tropicana Las Vegas resort and casino.
