One of the interesting sites that should be visited during a trip to Yangon is the Drug Elimination Museum.
There are three floors of exhibits with an additional floor on top for officials that is closed to the public.
Touring upwards through each level is rather like following the process of drug therapy itself. The ground floor shows the transport routes and the war against drugs. The middle floor illustrates the consequences of drug addiction. The top floor shows vocational therapy through a variety of occupations and positive lifestyles.
A model of the rehabilitation centre (in northern Myanmar) is surrounded by pictures and paintings of vocational work activities.
A bee-keeping display shows a positive choice of career as an alternative to taking drugs.
A display case of animal vaccines shows how working as an animal health specialist could be a positive alternative to taking drugs.
Unfortunately some parts of the museum are poorly maintained and have fallen into disrepair. Some of the displays have been affected by water damage.
In this display the visitor is invited to press a button to activate the model that simulates the crushing of drugs by a bulldozer. When I pressed the button, nothing happened.
The Drug Elimination Museum is definitely worth a visit.
