The Mob Museum Introduces First-Ever Virtual Tours

For the first time since opening in 2012, The Mob Museum, The National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, introduces virtual, guided tours highlighting its most popular exhibitions and artifacts. These tours offer enriching and entertaining ways to enjoy the Museum during its temporary closure due to COVID-19.


The new, virtual tour is split into three parts, following the itinerary guests take when physically visiting the Museum:

  • Birth of the Mob: Starting with the Museum’s historic postal boxes in the building’s lobby, make your way up to the third floor, where you’ll learn about the rise of organized crime, the history of Prohibition and the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, which took place in the north side of Chicago with seven members of George “Bugs” Moran’s bootlegging gang.
  • The Mob and Las Vegas: From the Kefauver Committee hearings in our historic courtroom to the Frank “Lefty” Rosenthal car bombing, take a virtual tour of the Mob’s rise in Las Vegas and the responses of law enforcement to the scourge of organized crime in the Museum’s second-floor exhibits.
  • The Mob in Politics and Culture: Journey through the Museum’s newest exhibits on the first floor covering wiretapping, modern organized crime and the Mob on TV, and end your virtual tour in The Underground, where you’ll learn more about Prohibition in our fully immersive speakeasy and distillery.

For additional virtual educational and entertainment resources, visit The Mob Museum’s website, its blog for fresh and timely content, as well as its Mobile App for easy access to more digital Museum information as well as the entertaining “Doppelgangster” feature, which matches users with their Mob history lookalike drawn from a database of more than 800 organized crime and law enforcement figures.
