Also the anniversary of the Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre, the acclaimed museum will unveil two Thompson machine guns used in the infamous execution. They are the only guns ever scientifically proven to be part of the 1929 massacre and will only be on display temporarily.

The guns, numbered #7580 and #2347, will complement the existing St. Valentine’s Day Massacre Wall — the same wall that seven members of Bugs Moran’s gang were lined up against before being shot and killed by Al Capone’s gang.

The guns will be unveiled at 9 a.m. on Friday. Lt. Mike Kline from the Berrien County Sheriff’s office in Michigan will deliver presentations about the guns at 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Friday and 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Saturday. Mob Museum members may attend an exclusive showing from 9 to 10 a.m. Saturday.
