Thursday will bring about the end of Jon Stewart's tenure hosting The Daily Show, however it won't be the last time you can check out the memorable set used on the show for the last 16 years.

After Stewart signs off, the desk, chair and everything else in between will be donated to the D.C based Newsuem.

"We are thrilled to accept the donation of these artifacts to the Newsuem collection," said Cathy Trost, senior vice president of exhibits and programs at the Newseum. "They are part of America's cultural and media history, telling an important story about how political satire and news as humor made The Daily Show a trusted news source for a generation."

This donation comes after the host put his Daily Show suits up for auction on eBay with proceeds going to Achilles International, a charity for disabled athletes.

Stewart's last guest will be friend and fellow comedian Louis C.K. Until then Daily Show fans will have to wait until September when new host Trevor Noah takes over the show.
