WASHINGTON (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Have you heard rumors that the Seinfeld set was boxed up and shipped to the Smithsonian museum after the last episode wrapped? Well, there’s not a shred of truth to it.

A spokesperson for the Smithsonian says the museum never takes full sets from TV shows, just props and costumes.

When M.A.S.H. ended in 1983, the Smithsonian displayed some of Klinger’s dresses and Hawkeye’s bathrobe and martini shaker. When Gunsmoke went off the air, the museum got an old Stetson hat worn by star James Arness.

The museum also has several baseball caps, rings and Hawaiian shirts worn by Tom Selleck’s character on Magnum, PI, as well as the famous “charwoman” outfit Carol Burnett wore on her ‘70s variety show.

But don’t think Seinfeld is getting the shaft from the Smithsonian. The museum is currently talking to Seinfeld producers about getting some type of memorabilia – perhaps even one of Kramer’s wacky shirts.
