“Breaking Bad” has found its way to a museum. The all-time favorite drama on TV has moved its props to Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. The list of artifacts include Walter White’s hat, which was popular during the show. Apart from that, the gas masks, the Heisenberg hat, and blue meth were among the donations made to the museum.
Present in the ceremony was “Bad” star Bryan Cranston, who played Walter White in the show. Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, Jonathan Banks, and RJ Mitte along with creator Vince Gilligan were present in the ceremony in Washington, DC. Some of the producers of the show were also present for the occasion.
John Gray, director of the National Museum of American History, said in an interview, “These objects and the groundbreaking show they are from help us document the ways in which American entertainment reflects and influences our lives,” adding, “In particular, ‘Breaking Bad’ offers us templates for understanding and confronting social issues.”
“Breaking Bad” was one of the most popular TV series by Sony Pictures Television during 2008 to 2013. The show got several awards and nominations. It had 16 Emmys in its credit. There were several items that became popular during the show. The Heisenberg pork pie hat, gas masks, Los Pollos Hermanos cups, Tyvek suits, and a Heisenberg sketch were some of them.
While it is good news for fans of “Breaking Bad,” they will have to wait to see the artifacts in the museum. The items will not be up for show anytime soon. According to museum authorities, the items will be displayed in an exhibition scheduled in 2018, where artifacts from American theater, music and entertainment will be showcased.
