The Daily Show will be in town next week, taping episodes at the Athenaeum Theatre from Oct. 16 to 19. Tickets have long been sold out, but we just learned that even if you don't get into the tapings, you'll have a chance to view some of what the program has to offer.

The Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library first surfaced in New York earlier this year, and the show described what could be expected from the exhibit in a press release:

Every president since Franklin D. Roosevelt has been honored with a meticulously curated memorial library commemorating the documents of historical value crafted during his time as leader of the free world. Continuing this hallowed tradition, and seeing no need to wait for him to leave office, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah will honor our current president with The Daily Show Presents: The Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library, the first of its kind, showcasing our Commander in Chief’s preferred vessel for communicating with the public, his Twitter feed.

Gothamist visited the New York installation, so we have an idea of what to expect when it opens its doors in Chicago, from Oct. 20 - 22. The DJTPTL will be located in the Great Hall at 225 Canal St., and will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. during its run.
