ASTORIA — Forget Madison Avenue; the "Mad Men" are coming to Queens.

An exhibit coming to the Museum of the Moving Image next month will take visitors behind the scenes of the critically acclaimed show, featuring a selection of films that inspired the series and props straight from the set.

The exhibit, "Matthew Weiner's Mad Men," will open March 14 and will include props, costumes, advertising art, video clips and research notes, as well as "large-scale sets" of Don Draper's office and the Draper family's kitchen, according to the museum.

"'Mad Men' is much more than a popular television series," curator Barbara Miller said in a statement. "It has become a cultural touchstone inspiring a renewed interest in a critical time in the country’s history."

Weiner, the show's creator, will be at the museum in person on March 20 for a discussion of the show. He's also curated a series of 10 films that inspired "Mad Men" — including "Blue Velvet" and "Vertigo" — which will be shown at the museum from March 14 to April 26.

The exhibit is expected to include a section exploring the origins of the show, as well as a "writers' room" installation with white boards and index cards used by the show's writers.

There will also be 25 "iconic" costumes from the show, including one of Don Draper's suits and a red dress Joan wore to an office holiday party.

Some of the props and costumes will stay at the museum permanently following the exhibit, the museum said.

"Matthew Weiner's Mad Men," will be on display at the Museum of the Moving Image, located at 36-01 35 Ave. in Astoria, from March 14 to June 14. For more information, visit its website.
