The Mob Museum in Las Vegas continues to shine a spotlight on gritty criminal elements in the United States and abroad. Having prominently detailed the history of everyone from bootleggers and mobsters to Mexican drug lord El Chapo’s prison break, starting September 2, the museum will have a special display on outlaw motorcycle gangs.
Though there is still a discussion about whether or not outlaw motorcycle clubs are gangs or in fact criminal, the Mob Museum decided to go ahead and label the bikers as they see fit: Gangsters.
Originating from the United States of America, outlaw biker clubs like the Hells Angels, Bandidos, and Mongols are now active in 41 countries on six continents and, according to the Mob Museum, “These gangs engage in drug and firearms trafficking, theft, extortion and other forms of organized crime.”

The display is located in the International Organized Crime Exhibit on the first floor and features:
