THE MOB MUSEUM SEEKS ONE MILLIONTH VISITOR: SUSPECT AT LARGE,
MANHUNT EXPECTED TO CONCLUDE DECEMBER 15

 A manhunt is under way for the 1 millionth visitor to The Mob Museum, The National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement. No details are yet available about the suspect, who is expected to remain at large until sometime shortly after 11 a.m. on Tuesday, December 15.

Immediately upon arrival at the Museum, the 1 millionth visitor will be identified and receive a surprise welcome with classic, Las Vegas-style fanfare, including balloons, a confetti launch, showgirls and a Champagne toast. Founding Museum board member and visionary behind the Museum’s creation, Oscar B. Goodman, will make a special presentation to commemorate the milestone. Las Vegas Custom Cakes will provide a commemorative cake.

Sources within The Mob Museum stated that “the suspect has been so elusive, we don’t even have a physical description. Anyone planning a visit to the Museum should be considered a person of interest.” Until Tuesday, Museum staff remain on high alert, holing up behind rolls of red carpeting and heavily armed with confetti launchers.

More information about the specific time of the 1 millionth visitor’s arrival will be available the morning of Tuesday, December 15.

THE MOB MUSEUM TO DEBUT AUDIO TOURS IN FOUR LANGUAGES THIS FEBRUARY

]For the first time,  The Mob Museum, The National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, will make audio tours available to its visitors. Recorded in English, Spanish, Mandarin and Portuguese, the tours will enable the Museum to speak to a wider audience, including the growing number of international visitors that travel to Las Vegas each year.

“We have always planned to add audio tours and a grant from the City of Las Vegas’ Centennial Commission made doing so possible,” explained Geoff Schumacher, director of content, The Mob Museum. “Being able to reach a growing number of non-English-speaking international visitors makes sense, especially given the fact all signs point to an increasing number of foreign travelers coming to Las Vegas each year.”

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority projects growing overall international visitation to the destination to amount to 30 percent of total visitors in the coming years. Currently, it operates 14 international offices, including those in the fast-emerging markets of China and Brazil. In 2013, international visitors comprised 20 percent of the destination’s nearly 40 million visitors. Since opening in 2012, the Museum has welcomed visitors from 35 countries around the world.
