THE MOB MUSEUM TO OFFER FREE ADMISSION FOR NEVADA RESIDENTS IN CELEBRATION OF KEFAUVER DAY, NOV. 15
Free Admission Sponsored by Zappos
To celebrate Kefauver Day, Nov. 15, The Mob Museum announces FREE admission for Nevada residents and buy one admission, get one free for non-residents, sponsored by Zappos.
The Museum places significant focus on increasing its accessibility to the community. Throughout the year, it extends free admission to Nevada residents through designated Annual Free Days and monthly community safety forums, serving approximately 6,000 guests per year.
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 this day, 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.
