Officially referred to as the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, The Mob Museum provides an insightful experience where visitors can explore the history of the longtime power struggle between the “good guys” and the “bad guys.”
The expertly curated historic timeline unfolds through four floors of evocative storytelling, gripping artifacts, dynamic multimedia displays and interactive exhibits.
The museum was created to advance public understanding of organized crime history and its impact on American society, as well as to commemorate law enforcement’s accomplishments
in combating it. —Carla J. Zvosec
The Underground Speakeasy & Distillery, which is appropriately located in the basement of The Mob Museum, provides an immersive Prohibition-era experience.
Just give the password—posted online— to gain entry and begin enjoying the live music, authentic art from the Roaring ’20s, and a secret VIP room offering period-appropriate drinks.
We love the old fashioned served in a glass flask from a hollowed-out book, of course. —Emily Kasten
