The Drug Enforcement Administration Museum and Visitors Center is a museum owned by the United States Drug Enforcement Administration and located in Arlington, Virginia. Its first exhibit opened in 1999,[1] and features exhibits on cannabis (drug), coca and poppy.[2]

The museum has appeared on a list of ten best 420 sites published in USA Today.[3] Fodor's calls its exhibits "hard hitting";[4] Lonely Planet's guide to Washington D.C. sarcastically recommended the museum "If...you think all drug users and pushers should go to jail for a very long time and drugs and terrorism go hand in hand -- or if you just have a thing for heavy-handed propaganda".[5]
