The Museum collects, preserves, and shares the stories of America’s connection to drugs, including public policy, federal drug law enforcement, and the work of Drug Enforcement Administration employees around the world. Its all-new, innovative learning environment includes interactives, artifacts, and displays that engage every guest in the science and history of drug misuse prevention. Captivating educational programs and hands-on activities also inspire visitors to become Agents of Change in their communities.
