Ball State University Is the New Home for Everything David Letterman

The David Letterman Experience will feature the talk show host's Emmys, sets, and more.

Last night, before sitting down with Spike Jonze and Bennett Miller, retired late night talk show host David Letterman gifted an undeniable bounty to his alma mater, Ball State University. The Muncie, Indiana, school—where Letterman graduated from in 1969—will be the new headquarters for all Letterman memorabilia including his Emmy statues, props, and Late Show/Late Night set pieces.

“The David Letterman Experience,” which will be housed in the serendipitously titled Letterman Building, will be an interactive exhibit about the legendary talk show and his life. Letterman, himself, questioned the importance on a museum-like installation to his life: “So you can sit at a desk and pretend to talk to an actor?”

While the full contents of the Experience haven’t been revealed yet, pretending to talk to an actor at Letterman’s desk still sounds worthy of at trip to Muncie.
