Mob Museum

Mob Museum

The National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement chronicles and curates the rise and fall of organized crime in America from the 1930s to the 1980s. This segment is hosted by Suzanne Dalitz, daughter of renowned Vegas Mob figure Moe Dalitz. Moe was never convicted of any crime, and as he said, “…always danced between the raindrops.” An early Vegas entrepreneur and power broker, he helped build the early gambling spot into the vibrant city it is today. Now we say crime doesn’t pay, but back then for a time, it sure did. At one point, organized crime had corporate offices all over the world and was, in the words of Meyer Lansky, “bigger than US Steel.” You could say Las Vegas was founded on their dreams!
