LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — To celebrate Kefauver Day on Nov. 15, The Mob Museum announces free admission for Nevada residents and buy one admission, get one free for non-residents. This promotion is being sponsored by Zappos.
Kefauver Day commemorates the Kefauver Committee hearing that took place in the museum’s courtroom in 1950.
Named after Senator Estes Kefauver of Tennessee, the Kefauver Committee hearings were televised and brought organized crime into the living rooms of many Americans for the first time.
They were held in 14 U.S. cities from 1950 to 1951 and were pivotal in the national fight against organized crime, as well as events that influenced the development of Las Vegas.
On Nov. 15, guests can also receive 20 percent off all food and beverage inside The Underground speakeasy and distillery, home to the Museum’s house-made moonshine.
The Mob Museum is located on 300 Stewart Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89101 and is open daily; visit the website for up-to-date operating hours. For more information, call (702) 229-2734 or visit themobmuseum.org
