The placed gives a short ,but quality view of the drug world and the people who work for the DEA. The exibits show how things progressed over the years, to the drugs of choice now
It took us longer to find this place and find parking in the mall garage then viewing this very small exhibit. But they did have signs up that they were expanding. So maybe after August 2013 there will be more!
OK, given that a drug enforcement museum might be tough sell for the family it is really worth your time. Educational but not preachy. Soon to be better with the opening of a huge new gallery. Check out the awesome motorcycle that was seized from a drug dealer. They have fact sheets for anyone doing a school report or for... More
We loved it, Museum is closed but the history of this site is amazing. You learn so much about the DEA that you don't realize that it more than the United States that is involved. Would go back again.
Having lived in Arlington for many years I finally decided to check this place out. I spent a couple of hours reading all of the display materials.

Lots of reading and exhibits for a small museum. You can definitely spend a minimum fof 30 mins in there. Cool to see what items they seized from drug dealers and old undercover wardrobes.

However, I must say that the exhibition unfairly put the blame on the Chinese workers who brought opium into the U.S. in the mid 1800s when it doesn't explain that the British - along with the U.S. - were the...

I pass this museum often and had always wanted to stop, then finally convinced some out of town visitors to go with me. I liked it!!! It was fun to see what the DEA does. I didn't know a lot about that agency before we went - for example I hadn't thought much about how the current focus is on... More
I guess I expected more of an interaction, but overall it was very informative. It was a big commercial to not do drugs basically. Wanted to see more interaction with how to DEA solves cases rather than a history of drugs.
