Great Odin’s Raven! ‘Anchorman’ Exhibit Coming to Washington DC

By June 4, 2013

Ron Burgundy is the kind of man who discovered the wheel and built the Eiffel Tower out of metal and brawn, and now it appears an exhibit is being constructed in our nation’s capital to honor the legendary anchorman.

A press release confirms that “Anchorman: The Exhibit” will be hitting the Newseum in Washington, D.C. and opening for the public on November 14th, 2013. Props and costumes worn by the Channel 4 Evening News team will be on display, including Ron Burgundy’s jazz flute and the whip used by rival anchorman Arturo Mendez (Ben Stiller) during the film’s iconic battle royale between news teams. There will also be a re-creation of the anchor desk and news set that visitors are legally allowed to take pictures in front of, which will certainly make for some badass Facebook profile pictures (especially if you attend the exhibit in 1970s garb).

In addition, fans will be able to record an Anchorman-themed TV spot at one of the Newseum’s “Be a TV Reporter” stations, complete with an introduction from Ron Burgundy himself. Will Ferrell is providing some commentary for the event, and the whole thing sounds like an Anchorman fan’s dream come true.

But if your schedule for the last couple months of the year is already packed due to holiday plans, don’t worry – this exhibit will be staying classy in D.C. all the way through August 31st, 2014. And don’t forget that Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues hits theaters on December 20th, 2013.
