Get excited, The Wonder Years fans, because a new collection of the show’s memorabilia is now on display at the Smithsonian‘s National Museum of American History!
Fred Savage — who played the hit show’s main character, Kevin Arnold — was on hand to present the trove of costumes, studio tapes, scripts and Polaroid photos from the ABC series on Tuesday, Dec. 2.

Adding these items to the Smithsonian “is a legacy that none of us could have possibly imagined,” Fred, 38, told the crowd at the donation ceremony in Washington D.C.
The actor’s mother, Joanne Savage, was also in attendance at the event to add one very special item to the collection — Kevin’s green New York Jets jacket.

“I would say, always, ‘Someday the Smithsonian might want it,’ and then they did,” Joanne Savage said of the coat she’s kept for more than 20 years since the show ended in 1993.
The memorabilia will be added to the museum’s permanent entertainment collection, which reportedly consists of more than 6,000 objects.
