It’s not only long-dead crooks whose crimes are recalled at the Mob Museum in Las Vegas. Mexican drug lord
The infamous drug cartel leader's prison escapes earned him a display that opened Tuesday and will continue through July.
The centerpiece of the exhibit is a model that replicates the drug lord's notorious 2015 escape from Mexico's maximum security Altiplano prison, about 50 miles from Mexico City.
The diorama shows the 32-foot shaft from Guzman's cell into a tunnel nearly a mile long, through which he traveled on a motorcycle. Also shown is a second shaft leading from the tunnel's end into another building, inside which El Chapo was reunited with his partners in crime.
The exhibit also includes a video documenting Guzman's life. It's the second in a series of displays focused on organized crime in the 21st century; the first profiled the recent FIFA soccer scandal.
The museum is open daily 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Adult tickets cost $19.95 when purchased in advance online.
