The Mob Museum

3 of 12

Opens Valentine’s Day, 2012. It’s the actual former federal
courthouse where such landmark hearings as the 1950 Kefauver hearings on organized
crime were held. Here, Las Vegas’s former “Happiest Mayor on Earth,” Oscar Goodman,
defended real-life wiseguys like Anthony “The Ant” Spilotro (playing himself
defending a facsimile of The Ant in the movie Casino). The long-awaited
(a decade, to be exact) $42 million museum was created by the same team that
designed the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C. Among its showpieces:
part of the bullet-ridden wall from the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre. 300
Stewart Ave.
