Bruce Willis’s “Die Hard” series is assured its place in history. The actor donated several pieces of “Die Hard” memorabilia to the Smithsonian on Wednesday, including the beleaguered t-shirt that Willis wore into battle during the movie. The actor, accompanied by his daughters, Rumer and Tallulah, was present at the National Air and Space Museum to give the memorabilia to the museum’s “Treasures of American History” collection.

In addition to the grubby t-shirt worn by his character John McClane Willis donated the New York police badge sported by McClane and a promotional poster for the first film. The items join the ranks of such hallowed movie objects as Judy Garland’s ruby slippers from “The Wizard of Oz” and “Star Wars” droids C-3PO and R2D2.
