Updates and Renovations Coming to the DEA Museum
While the DEA Museum will remain open to the public, the two main exhibit galleries at the Museum will close temporarily starting June 1, 2013 for a major renovation and update. These enhanced and expanded galleries will reopen on July 1, 2013 with new interactive content, an expanded history timeline, iPad stations with even more facts and information on the history of drug abuse and drug law enforcement, and an all-new Junior Special Agent program for our younger visitors! The goal of the renovation is to tell even more of the story of drugs in the United States, and to make the presentation more interactive for all ages of visitors. During the renovation project, the DEA Museum remains open for normal hours of operation with a number of temporary exhibits and the new Museum Gift Shop open to visitors.
The mission of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Museum and Visitors Center is to educate the public on the history of drugs, drug abuse, and drug law enforcement through engaging and state-of-the-art exhibits, interactive displays, and educational outreach programs, all to emphasize and encourage a drug abuse free society.
