WANTED
I'm currently looking for someone who has La Corona Corona cigars that were made in Havana (not U.S. Trenton, N.J.) around the 1930's, and is willing to sell me a couple. I'm not interested in a box, just one or two cigars in order to try them to see what Al Capone enjoyed about them and give the feedback on my site.
If you have some and are willing to help out on this historical experiment please let me know via Alcaponemuseum@gmail.com

Al Capone

Unlike some of the other gangster museums out there, this one can really state proudly that it is non profit! This site and I do not make one dang penny! Most of the time and money was spent by me on this labor of love. This was achieved over many, many years and for the purpose of presenting the correct history. Here you can visit rain or shine, 24/7, 365 days of the year for free! You do not pay anything to enter and see all the items, info, photos accumulated here! Whether you are a history buff, musician, Hollywood actor, author, writer or just the a plain fan, this site can be used for your simple enjoyment, research project, book, movie. Whether it's just show off your knowledge to others or on mob message boards. I do not try to sell you subscriptions, t-shirts, mugs and keychains! I often wondered what the other museums do with that money and the big entrance fee?
Now tell me? Which museum will let you visit in your underpants? Well, here you can!
~~~~~~~~~~

"Unlike the City of Chicago, who seems hellbent on erasing everything related to the Capone era, here you will find some of the past brought back for history's integrity, and for the Capone era's rightful place in history. Good or bad, how can we learn from the past if you want to deny that it ever existed" ----- Mario Gomes

In Memoriam

~~~~~~~~~~
“The older I get, the more I realize that the light you think you’re radiating is not the light other people see when they look at you. I wonder how Al Capone felt about himself as he looked in the mirror in the privacy of his own bathroom. I’m sure he thought of himself as a very human guy.”
- Hollywood Legendary Actor Paul Newman, 1989.

Welcome to my personal homepage. Welcome to My Al Capone Museum web site. In the past 31 years, I have collected items belonging to and dealing with the Granddaddy of all American gangsters, Alphonse Capone. My fascination with Capone started out with Robert De Niro's outstanding perfomance as the eminent Chicago underworld king. My curiosity was peaked. I wanted to know more about Al Capone and his era. I immediately began my search and soon found out that the facts were far more exciting than any of Hollywood's made up fiction. Al Capone was a multi-faceted man. He could be kind, vicious, loyal and quick with a joke. I must say outright that he was a gangster and a criminal. I do not endorse his way of life by any means, but I will admit that I am fascinated with his staying power (still popular 87 years after his era and 71 years after his death)! This non profit website was made to educate and satisfy various people interested in this particular era of history. People from all walks of life visit and enjoy these pages. It all started with a single web page and then quickly snowballed into what you see today. After coaxing by some media people,(they almost had to twist my arm, literally!) I finally gave in and appeared on History channel T.V. documentary, participated in some newspaper and television news stories for my Capone research / collection. Click through to let me share the past and some of my collection with you. Enjoy! Sincerely,

Mario Gomes

This personal non-profit site was made strictly for your enjoyment and mine. It took me many years and money out of my own pocket to make. I do not have an agenda claiming that I own Al Capone, nor am I peddling any book. I do not associate myself with any author, writer, Capone relative, any supposed Capone relative or other Capone website, unless it's specified here, or if their book, site or name appears here. Some people related or not claim this subject for fame and glory, some do it for the money, some for both. For me, it's merely about the fascination of the era.This educational website's aim is strictly about telling a historically untwisted, unbiased and correct version (at least as close as humanly possible) of Al Capone and the roaring twenties. Through this process, I wanted to share it with all true history buffs out there, whether experienced or novice. Nothing more, nothing less! This site and I have proudly helped countless students across the U.S. with their National History Day projects on Al Capone. I personally take the time to answer their questions.
