WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- It's kind of a big deal: "Anchorman: The Exhibit" at the Newseum in D.C. is now officially open to the public.

You can see more than 60 costumes and props from "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy," including Ron Burgundy's jazz flute, mustache brush, burgundy suit in a revolving glass case (of emotion?) -- and yes, ladies, the Sex Panther cologne is there, too.

While you're there, you can pose for a photo at the KVWN-TV anchor desk and news set.

The exhibit does take the opportunity to delve into television news history and the issue of sexism.  A film featuring interviews with Connie Chung, Maury Povich, Melba Tolliver and Al Primo explores the challenges women faced in newsrooms in the 1970s.

The exhibit opens more than a month before the sequel to Anchorman, "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues," is released. December also brings follow-up Anchorman events at the Newseum: an invitation-only event with Will Ferrell and an exclusive screening of the sequel.
