The final episodes of AMC's Mad Men will air this spring, but that doesn't mean the show will be gone for good.

It looks like fans will still have a place to go to get their Don Draper fix long after the series has ended. On Friday CBS announced that Jon Hamm and other members of the cast have donated a number of props to the National Museum of American History, including many of the costumes.

A number of the show's props are in fact objects from the 1960s, including authentic cigarette cartons and shaving kits. Creator Matthew Weiner is thrilled that the series has helped these pieces to find a permanent home.

"What I love about these objects being here is that these are for the most actual objects," explained Weiner. "This is the archaeological site of humanity from this period. We're glad that we saved these things."

"You know, they say that all good things must come to an end," noted AMC President Charlie Collier, "And all great things come to the Smithsonian."

The popular ad agency drama's final season began back in 2014 before going on hiatus. It will return next month with the show's final episodes, though not everyone will be happy with the finale. Weiner has notable on multiple occasions that he's aware that he can't please everyone, but has crafted a ending which he deems appropriate for the program.

Mad Men will return on AMC for the remainder of its seventh and final season on Sunday, April 5.
