Leather-bound books? Leave that to the Library of Congress. The Newseum will do one better when it showcases Ron Burgundy’s jazz flute at its “Anchorman: The Exhibit,” an exhibition of props and costumes from the 2004 cult hit “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.”

On Nov. 14, the Newseum will join with Paramount Pictures to feature memorable sets and props from the Will Ferrell film, just in time for the release of “Anchorman: The Legend Continues” in December.

The kitschy, ’70s-style costumes worn by the fictional Channel 4 Evening News team of San Diego will appear alongside a re-creation of KVWN-TV anchor desk, where fans can practice their own “You stay classy” sign offs.

Although an interactive exhibit, Newseum officials have not yet confirmed whether it will feature a life-size glass case of emotion. Stay tuned for updates.
