The Mob Museum will debut a new permanent display Friday, February 26, to add to its growing collection of artifacts from well-known movie and TV shows portraying organized crime with items from Breaking Bad, the award-winning television crime drama broadcast from 2008-2013 on AMC.

An opening reception – with complimentary beer, wine and specialty cocktails using Heisenberg vodka – will be held from 6-9 p.m. Friday, February 26, at the Museum. This event is sold out.

The discussion with Detoro and Thomson will start at 6:30 p.m. and include live streaming of the program.

Sponsors are Blue Ice Vodka and Johnson Brothers. The reception will also feature a discussion with special guests, Kathleen Detoro, costume designer for the show, and David Thomson, editor of Breaking Bad the official book. The Breaking Bad display will be available for public viewing on February 26.

“Breaking Bad effectively dramatized organized crime and today’s illicit drug trade,” – Geoff Schumacher, director of content for The Mob Museum

Artifacts to be included:

  • Yellow hazmat suit worn by Cranston in scenes where White was cooking meth.
  • Two gas masks and rubber apron.

Breaking Bad tells the story of White, a high school chemistry teacher who learns he has inoperable lung cancer. White partners with a former student, Jesse Pinkman, played by Aaron Paul, to manufacture and sell methamphetamine to build a family nest egg before he dies. As White descends into the shadowy world of the illegal drug trade, he becomes a dark and notorious figure who goes by the alias Heisenberg. 

Created by Vince Gilligan, the series received numerous awards, including 16 Emmys and two Golden Globes.
