Gripping, original, and addictive as meth, Breaking Bad has left a Winnebago-sized hole in our hearts since it wrapped up in 2013. It was, quite simply, one of the best shows to ever grace our screens.
Well, the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History whole-heartedly agrees and on Tuesday accepted some of the show's memorabilia for posterity so future generations can all revel in Walter White's badass story.
Creator Vince Gilligan was on hand for the ceremony at the museum in Washington, D.C., to watch his show enter the history books.
Of course, Bryan Cranston was there too...
And the impossibly cute Aaron Paul...
As well as everyone's favorite character, Mike (Jonathan Banks)!
Of course, the iconic Heisenberg Hat was one of the items donated to the museum's collection.
Two yellow Tyvek suits worn by Cranston and Paul were also donated...
As were cups with the "Los Pollos Hermanos" logo, a bag of the signature blue meth, the iconic sketch of Heisenberg, Hank Schrader’s DEA ID card, a “Better Call Saul” matchbook, and a purple corkscrew used by Marie Schrader.
The Smithsonian says there are no current plans to put the objects on display, but hinted they may appear in a 2018 exhibition on American culture.
