Newseum visitors … assemble! The Washington, D.C. museum has announced the opening of “Anchorman: The Exhibit,” timed with the release of “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” later this year.

The exhibit “explores the reality behind the humor of ‘Anchorman’ and tracks the rise of personality-driven news formats in the 1970s,” according to the Newseum. Costumes and original props from the movie will be on display, and the exhibit will feature a replica KVWN-TV anchor desk where visitors can pose.

The exhibit will open in November and remain on display until August 2014.
