Mob Museum takes stories beyond Vegas

The Las Vegas’s National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement (or Mob) Museum is to introduce ‘Moe-Bot’, a robotic device enabling guests to visit the museum via their mobile device or computer.

Developed as a way to expand the museum’s audience reach to include those who cannot visit in person, the BeamPro telepresence robot will enable visitors to participate in a guided tour of the museum from almost anywhere in the world once it begins operations on April 1. Once a user logs onto the system, their face appears on Moe-Bot’s screen, which is mounted on a mobile stand, whose movement the user controls.

A museum guide accompanies the Moe-Bot visitor to answer any questions, point out must-see displays and ensure each tour experience is interactive and personalised.

Located in downtown Las Vegas and dedicated to the story of organized crime and law enforcement, the museum presents stories about the Mob, its impact on Las Vegas history and imprint on the world. True stories of Mob history are brought to life in an eye-opening style via interactive exhibits, high-tech theatre presentations and nearly 1,000 authentic artefacts
