WASHINGTON —

The Smithsonian Institution is adding relics from soap operas and game shows to its national entertainment collection to tell the story of daytime television.

On Thursday, actress Susan Lucci from TV's "All My Children" and Alex Trebek from "Jeopardy!" visited the National Museum of American History to donate objects from their shows. They were joined by the creators of "Barney" to show the range of daytime TV programs.

The new artifacts range from show scripts and props to original artwork. Lucci donated the pink gown and shoes she wore for a national magazine cover when she won an Emmy in 1999.

The museum is launching a three-year initiative to collect more objects to tell the story of daytime television. It is partnering with the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
