Starting with Franklin D. Roosevelt, every president of the United States has been memorialized with a library bearing his name that houses the historic documents during his tenure as commander-in-chief. The Daily Show has decided that Donald Trump — a man who claims to have” the best words” — shouldn’t have to wait to be honored in the same manner, but for a president who prefers the medium of Twitter to books, a few adjustments were made.

The Daily Show Presents: The Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library will be an actual place that you can visit in New York (3 West 57th Street) from this Friday, June 16 to June 18, 11 a.m. and 7 p.m., and see his social media activity laid in front of you. Admission is free, but being exposed to that many Trump tweets in a row, up close and personal may come with a steep price.

The pop-up library boasts “visual installations and a fully interactive, hands-on experience for hands of all sizes.” How hands-on, you ask? Attendees can compose “a totally necessary tweet” upon a golden toilet installed in the Oval Office. They can take in a retrospective exhibit of all the “people, places, and things that the president has deemed ‘Sad!'”; a display of one of his contradictory opinions over time; a series of testimonials from other famous Twitter users “as they recount the trauma of being targeted by Trump on Twitter”; and a short docu-film narrated by Daily Show correspondent Jordan Klepper that examines the history of Trump and his medium of choice.

The Daily Show airs weeknights at 11 p.m. ET/PT.
