The Mob Museum is offering free admission for Kefauver Day on Nov. 15.

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.

This year is the 69th anniversary of the hearings.

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 museum is open 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
