The embargo has been lifted: the “Anchorman” exhibit is now open at the Newseum.

Fans of the film will see costumes, props and a recreation of the popular Will Ferrell movie’s fictional KVWN-TV anchor desk and news set, where visitors can pose for photos.

The museum will stay classy by using the movie’s humor as a backdrop to showcase the challenges women faced when entering the news business in the 1970s.

In December, Ferrell will visit the Newseum for an invitation-only event, where the funny man will discuss reprising his role as Ron Burgundy in “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,” which opens in theaters this Christmas.

The “Anchorman” exhibit will be featured at the museum through August.
