Drugs: Costs and Consequences

OPENING THIS SATURDAY September 30, 2023

Illegal drugs are an ever-present threat in American society. This exhibit from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Museum is designed to shed light on the science of drug addiction and the myriad costs of illegal drugs to individuals, American society, and the world and to provide context on how we can make a difference. Through artifacts, exhibits, historical details, science content, and video and interactive stations, the exhibit provides a powerful look at one of the biggest issues facing America today.

Thank you to all of our Exhibit Steering Committee community leaders for your support!
