What Better Place For A Mob Museum Than Vegas

Slated to open in 2010, the museum will be on the site of the formal Federal Court House in Las Vegas. I can't think of a better location that the city built buy the mob. So far it looks like original artifacts will be donated by even the FBI. Even tho the opening is not for over a year, Vegas sees the possibility of upwards of over 800,000 visitors. Being downtown, it will be interesting to see if it will pull visitors away from the strip. If it can, it will a great feat. The choice for the theme of the museum came from polling tourists as they visited Vegas and won hands down over the other options. The goal is not to glorify the mob but to show how it influenced the birth and evolution of the city. When its done, it will be on my list of things to do for sure.
