What is there to do?

Exploring the history of the DEA and what it stands for is a fascinating way to spend your time in Arlington.

The DEA Museum is filled with exhibits that focus on the drug history, drug addition and drug law enforcement with the USA. Suited to the older kids, the museum features state of the art exhibits, as well as interactive stations and displays, and educational programs, all of which will intrigue and captivate those who visit.

The DEA Museum exhibits each cover a specific topic, where you can really become engaged in the content. Some of the exhibits change, so there is always something new to see. The topics range from illegal drugs in the USA< to medicinal drugs, and the consequences of going down the wrong path.

It's actually a great way for kids to learn right from wrong, and to learn the consequences of such paths in life. 

The exhibits on the DEA are fascinating in themselves too. You can learn all about how they operate in the air, on the land and in the sea, as well as the history of how it all began from the 1970s to present day. Kids can even see who won Purple Heart's because of their brave work as they protected the county. 

So why not take the kids to a unique and educational museum for your next family day out. You might be amazed at what you learn, and it's a museum that supports those who protect the USA!
