President Donald Trump may be only five months into his presidency, but that isn't stopping "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah" from creating a presidential library.

Well, one dedicated to his tweets, anyway.

The library — located close to Trump Tower at 3 West 57th Street near Fifth Avenue —will open on Friday and close on Sunday according to a report by Deadline Hollywood. Hurry over if you're in the Tri-state area and know what's good for you.

The Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library was first announced by Noah in March. Exhibitions will include "Sad! A Retrospective," which chronicles everything that Trump has described as "sad" in his Twitter account; "Trump vs. Trump," which showcases the number of contradictory opinions that Trump has held on various issues; and "Master Works From The Collection," which profiles some of Trump's most famous (or infamous) tweets.

The library will also contain the interactive exhibit "The Commander-in-Tweet" allowing visitors to compose their own tweets on a golden toilet in the Oval Office (presumably to parody Trump's own habit of tweeting at seemingly inopportune times and locations.)

In addition, the library will contain the display "Twistory in the Making: Donald J. Trump on Twitter," a chronicle of the evolution of his Twitter account from his early days as an ordinary celebrity through the 2016 presidential election and all the way up to his present days as President of the United States.

As Noah himself put it about America's social media savvy commander-in-chief, "You can't deny that when it comes to Twitter, he is the king." Indeed, all hail @realDonaldTrump.
