On Friday, February 26, The Mob Museum, The National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, will debut a permanent display from “Breaking Bad,” the award-winning crime drama broadcast from 2008-2013 on AMC.
The display represents the latest addition to the Museum’s growing collection of items from movies and TV shows portraying organized crime.
An opening reception takes place that evening from 6 to 9 p.m. Discussions will begin at 6:30 p.m. with special guests Kathleen Detoro, the series’ costume designer, as well as David Thomson, editor of “Breaking Bad: The Official Book.”
Complimentary wine, beer and specialty cocktails sponsored by Johnson Brothers and 21st Century Spirits’ limited edition “Heisenberg” Blue Ice Vodka will be available during the reception, which is free for Museum Members and free with the cost of admission for all other guests.
Artifacts included in the display include the yellow hazmat suit worn by Bryan Cranston in the scenes where his character, Walter White, was cooking meth.
Two gas masks and a rubber apron worn during the series will also be on view.
“‘Breaking Bad’ effectively dramatized organized crime and today’s illicit drug trade,” says Geoff Schumacher, director of content, The Mob Museum.
Guests must RSVP to attend the “Breaking Bad” opening reception here.
