The Atlantic City Historical Museum has unveiled an exhibit, “The Atlantic City Experience: 1920′s” .  Presented by… the Atlantic City Free Public Library , the exhibit  featuring information and photos of the Atlantic City boss Enoch “Nucky” Johnson, the man who is the inspiration behind Boardwalk Empire’s fictionalized character Nucky Thompson.

From the Ritz-Carlton hotel to the first Miss America Parade, you can see rare pictures of how it really was in 1920′s Atlantic City. The Atlantic City Museum , in the Garden Pier at New Jersey Ave. on the Atlantic City Boardwalk,  is now run by the AC Free Public Library and  is open Monday through Saturday, 10:00am – 5:00pm with free admission.
