Score! The Smithsonian Bags Iconic Breaking Bad Costumes and Artifacts
A bag blue meth, Walter White's pork pie hat and Los Pollos Hermanos cups are just a few items that could go on display in the future
Good news for Breaking Bad fans: Costumes and other artifacts from the series were added to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History on Tuesday.
“These objects and the groundbreaking show they are from help us document the ways in which American entertainment reflects and influences our lives,” said John Gray, director of the National Museum of American History, in a statement. “In particular, Breaking Bad offers us templates for understanding and confronting social issues.”

ran for five seasons, and during that time, won 16 Emmy Awards, including outstanding drama series two years in a row.
In addition to Walter White’s signature pork pie hat, the show donated a bag of blue meth, Walter and Jesse Pinkman’s Tyvek suits and gas masks, which they wore while cooking meth, Los Pollos Hermanos cups, Hank Schrader’s DEA ID card, a Better Call Saul matchbook, a purple corkscrew used by Marie Schrader and a sketch of Heisenberg.
But don’t book your flight to Washington, D.C., just yet – the Smithsonian says “there are no immediate plans to display the objects.” However, there’s a chance they will be featured in an exhibit on American culture that’s slated to open in 2018.
