So how long before the LVME sleeps with the fishes? I would be surprised if any element of it is open when I got out there the second weekend in December.

We visited the pared down experience a few days ago. There were quite a lot of visitors there. We both enjoyed the exhibition. There was a lot of very interesting reading. I'm glad the interactive part was closed. There would be no way i'd have got Tony to do that.

Now with a new name and a new owner, Mob Attraction Las Vegas:

There's a new web address as well, but it's currently a GoDaddy parking page.

It would be funny if the mob bought the museum.

Now this is getting confusing. The Facebook page for the Mob Experience is now claiming the page was hacked and hijacked on 2/6/12 and that the LVME is not the Mob Attraction, that it is not under new ownership, and that it's not changing its' name.

http://www.facebook.com/lvmobexperience

Makes me wonder if someone from Murder Inc. is behind this (Maybe someone who is still on staff with the exhibit and is about to be whacked.), as their Twitter account changed at the same time and yet they're not saying anything about it being hacked and renamed......

That does sound confusing. People may not want to do it if they don't know what is going on...bad marketing..

I suspect those who are serious about the history of Las Vegas and organized crime's impact will forgo this dog and pony show known as the Mob Experience at the Tropicana and head Downtown to The Mob Museum recently opened on Stewart Street in the venerable old Federal Building.

You're probably right. I enjoyed it with Vegasbaby, mostly because it was short and fun. I'm not one to spend hours going over artifacts and information. OKay, yeah I am, but not for mob stuff. ;-)

It sounds like a power grab, at least in regards to the social media side of things. Murder Inc. has been fighting the whole time to keep assets and the social media sites appear to be just another battle ground between the former owners of the attraction and the new owners (who had acquired assets legitimately via the bankruptcy process). The Tropicana website refers to the attraction by the new name, and my guess is that the LVME is trying to regroup and reopen in a new space in town. The problem is that there's probably not enough room for three mob attractions in Las Vegas.
