BUFFALO, N.Y. - An exhibit honouring the late Tim Russert is opening in the hometown of the long-time moderator of NBC's "Meet the Press."

The exhibit titled, "Inside Tim Russert's Office," opens Friday at the Buffalo History Museum. It shows Russert's Washington, D.C., bureau office much as it did on June 13, 2008, the day he died of a heart attack at age 58 while recording voiceovers for his next show.

Russert's office went on display at the Newseum in Washington in late 2009 and was on view through last June 15.

The re-creation includes items such as Russert's "Thou Shalt Not Whine" sign, as well as many of his books, papers and framed photos.

Russert, who served on the Newseum's board of directors, was bureau chief for NBC News in Washington. He began hosting "Meet the Press" in 1991.
