WASHINGTON -

Stephen Colbert will take his place among the presidents at the Madame Tussauds wax museum in Washington and will be featured in a new media gallery.

Colbert is expected to visit the museum Friday to unveil a new wax figure created to represent him. The museum says Colbert donated his own clothes to dress the figure in a suit, tie, cuff links and lapel pin.

The new figure will be the centerpiece of a new media gallery with a replica of "The Colbert Report" set where guests can sit next to Colbert's figure behind his fake news desk.

Designers from Madame Tussauds went to Colbert's New York studio in June to take more than 250 measurements and photographs of the Comedy Central star to create the wax figure.
