Only in Las Vegas could someone plan on spending $50 million to build an Organized Crime “Mob” Museum and expect it to be a success. This week’s Reader Poll asks you what you think of building a Mob Museum as a Las Vegas attraction? Does a Mob Museum bring out the bad side of Las Vegas or will it be an asset to Las Vegas? The Mob Museum is expected to be completed in mid 2011 and has received a vast array of opinions. What is your opinion? We want to hear from you!

I like the idea of a mob attraction, I think it will help the city .     donna  Chicago IL

As i read this it seemed like a joke, but the more i thought about it the thought of being able to relive the old las vegas became very attractive.  I like the mob museum concept and will attend when open.    Roger K   Miami FL

 I cant wait for the mob museum to open. I don't think it will cast a shadow on Vegas, only increase the intrigue into the colorful past. I cant wait for it to open !   John Bierbach   Waterford,WI

The mob museum will be a commemoration to the partial and factual history of Las Vegas. Mob affiliation and, in fact, dominance is an indelible part of that history. I believe it will be an asset to the community and it's storied past, provided the final product exemplifies and adheres to known facts about mob influences in Vegas. Mayor Goodman
should be well recognized at this attraction as a mob lawyer.  Charles Higgins  Las Cruces

A mob Museum would be a great thing. It would show all the young people today, there was more to vegas back than in it's time error. Not like today with all the rides & lites if it was a Disneyland Today. But I don't think to many younger crouds will care to know about history. They go to Vegas to "PARTY". All you can do is hope they will come.

I for one like to hear or read about those times. I guess seeing the old machine guns, shot guns,cars,and all the other type of weapons used then are pretty cool. I also liked the clothes they had back in that time area. I think it would be cool to take a step back in time, and I think people from around the world would really enjoy it too. It does not have to be a bad thing, it only has to be interesting.  Alan D Wagner   Sheboygan

History is factual - and the "mob" is definitely the beginning of Las Vegas as we know it. As long as it's not over dramatized I think it's perfectly o. k. to bring back history.  JO K   Lansdowne, PA

loser, everything in this place has been on tv a hundred times, will not waste my time.    richie   whitestone ny

 I believe it will be a success. the mob ran vegas for years and is part of the history of vegas.   Joseph Hedges  Lee's Summit, Mo

I am definitely not interested and have no plans to visit it when I make my yearly trek to Vegas. Kathleen Cahill   Dallas, TX

a lot of People drive 100's of miles out of their way to see where Billy the Kid shot his way out of jail and into history. Why wouldn't they take a short bus ride from the strip to downtown Vegas? I remember once standing in a really long line to see the Bonnie and Clyde Car they were in when ambushed. If done right it will be a big hit. I will be there.  Wayne  San Antionio

I think it's a great idea. I will definitely go, and probably buy some t-shirts. The history of Las Vegas is incomplete if the story of the mob is not included.   Michael Payne  Woodstock, GA

it was a part of las vegas history and lore. it will be a huge success.   James Wolf   Sheboygan,

Well, it this humble-man's opinion I think a Mob Musium might not be a bad tourism business in Las Vegas. But, they should include a FBI Musium on the 2nd floor overlooking the Mob Musium. They go hand-in-hand. Or, is it gun-in-hand? I forget how it goes in this case. One way to avoid repeating the past mistakes is to not forget them (whenever possible) and a musium on Mobsters would be curious.   Larry Strehl   Tampa/Florida

Well it does fit with the history of Vegas. I won't be interested in going to it.  Jesus Morales   San Antonio
