Blue meth, Walter White's hat and other 'Breaking Bad' memorabilia to go on display at Smithsonian Museum

'Breaking Bad' Memorabilia Move Into Smithsonian Museum

Walter White is no longer just a staple of the methamphetamine business, but a cultural icon in American history.

Memorabilia from the hit AMC show "Breaking Bad" will be on display at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History, with more than 10 objects being added to its collection.

"Breaking Bad" producer Vince Gilligan joined Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, Jonathan Banks and RJ Mitte at the museum on Tuesday to donate the various items, such as the Tyvek suits and gas masks used by Walter White and Jesse Pinkman to cook the meth, as well as bags of 99.1 percent blue meth and Los Pollos Hermanos cups. Even White's hat will be on display.

"If you had told me there'd be crystal meth in the same museum as The Star-Spangled Banner, Thomas Edison's light bulb, Abraham Lincoln's pocket watch and Dorothy's ruby slippers, I'd have told you you were using too much of Walter White's product," Gilligan said, according to USA Today.

Other donated items include Hank Schrader's DEA ID card, a purple corkscrew used by his wife, as well as the famous sketch of White's alter-ego, Heisenberg.

However, the pieces won't be on display on their own. The museum is planning an exhibition exploring American culture, which will include memorabilia from "Mad Men," "The Wonder Years," and "All in the Family." The exhibition is scheduled to open in 2018.

"Breaking Bad" ran from 2008 to 2013 and won 16 Emmy Awards.
