It’s real and it’s spectacular! Fans of the hit 90s TV show Seinfeld can finally get to experience the TV show in all of its glory this fall. ‘The Seinfeld Experience’, as it’s being called, will be a “retail store and immersive exhibit” dedicated to the show in the Gramercy neighborhood in Manhattan.

According to Time Out magazine, the immersive production will include “set re-creations, costumes, memorabilia, props and (best of all) never before seen content.” The exhibit, which is set to open “later this year,” will be open 7 days a week and run through February 2020. Tickets will go on sale in the coming months.

The production is a collaboration between Warner Bros., Consumer Products, and event-planning company Superfly. Similar experiences and tours have been offered in the past, however, these experiences were not sanctioned by Warner Bros. or associated with Seinfeld.

Jerry Seinfeld himself has even commented on The Seinfeld Experience, saying, “Because I am Seinfeld, for a long time I was the only person to actually have the Seinfeld experience. Now, these crazy Superfly people are going to make it so lots of people can interact with our silly 90’s TV show.”

The Seinfeld Experience doesn’t appear to offer a tour component, which means fans will need to explore notable Seinfeld landmarks of the show on their own. While much of the show featured fictional locations, the show references a surprising number of real-life restaurants, stores, and locations in New York City that are still around today.

If you are planning on visiting The Seinfeld Experience and want to explore New York City Seinfeld-style, here’s a list of just a few locations to visit:
