"Anchorman" exhibit to open at the Newseum in DC

Paramount Pictures

A real exhibit about a fake newsman will be on display at the Newseum in Washington, D.C., later this year.

"Anchorman: The Exhibit" will include props, costumes and footage from the movie. The clothes worn by the Channel 4 Evening News team will be on display, along with Ron Burgandy's jazz flute and the whip used by Arturo Mendez in the rumble between the rival news teams.

There will also be a replica of Burgandy's anchor desk and news set where you can pose for photo ops. There will also be clips from the movie and special commentary by the "Anchorman" star, Will Ferrell. The exhibit opens Nov. 14, five weeks before the "Anchorman" sequel hits theaters. It will run through the end of August 2014.

The 2004 hit comedy "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" starred Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and David Koechner. Those stars have all signed on for the 2014 installment. Adam McKay, who helmed the original "Anchorman," co-wrote the sequel's screenplay and will also direct the film, which arrives on Dec. 20.
