Honored guests: Welcome to the Seinfeld Smithsonian. Please, as a courtesy to other patrons, no photographs and no talking, except low-talking. Don’t wake the guard; he’s part of the display. Refreshments—Snapple and cereal—are available in the cafeteria.

We regret that, owing to our size—a scant 1.6 million square feet—we cannot show our entire collection at one time. Thus, many important objets—Fusilli Jerry, Son of Sam’s mailbag, Puddy’s sublime “Ask the Eight Ball” jacket—are, for now, in storage. Please return later, when those items will be displayed, along with our newest and most prized acquisition, the Mulva Lisa.

THE EYE PATCH

Kramer wore it because “I’m stagnating!”

A ROCKING CHAIR

George gave one to a security guard (played then, and here, by Gary Yates), who promptly fell asleep

COSTANZA!

George hoped this picture would excite a woman at the photo shop. It excited a man at the photo shop

A gal in the bathroom couldn’t “spare a square” for one cast member On loan, E. Benes collection

GLAMOUR

The magazine that started “The Contest” (which, in a later episode, George claimed he won)

JUNIOR MINTS

They’re very refreshing—less so when dropped into someone mid-splenectomy

MUFFIN TOPS

Elaine’s invention (and the culinary forebear of pudding-skin singles). Unwelcome by-product: muffin stumps

MAESTRO’S BATON

Hello, Maestro. The pretentious Tuscany villa-occupying opera bozo’s key accessory also made a fine pool cue, briefly
