LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The Mob Museum in downtown Las Vegas is offering free admission for Nevada residents on Monday to celebrate Kefauver Day.
The National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement says Nevada visitors can receive free admission and non-Nevada residents can get two-for-one admission passes.
Kefauver Day commemorates the U.S. Senate investigative hearing into organized crime that took place in the museum's courtroom in 1950.
The Kefauver Committee hearings were televised nationwide and brought organized crime into the living rooms of many Americans for the first time. Held in 14 U.S. cities from 1950 to 1951, the Kefauver hearings were pivotal in the national fight against organized crime, as well as events that influenced the development of Las Vegas, according to a Mob Museum spokesperson.
All museum guests on Monday will also receive 10 percent off food and certain beverages inside The Underground speakeasy and at museum concessions.
Guests may obtain their free admission in person at the museum box office on a first-come, first-served basis.
