If you’re fascinated by folks like Al Capone and the underworld dealings of gangsters past and present, Downtown’s the Mob Museum, housed in a former courthouse that hosted part of the Kefauver hearings, is a must. The museum’s exhibits and artifacts (including the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre Wall) detail the Mafia’s impact on Las Vegas and the rest of the country, as well as the steps law enforcement took to bring the dons down.
