While Dorothy’s ruby slippers from “The Wizard of Oz” are prize artifacts at the Smithsonian, Ron Burgundy’s burgundy “Anchorman” suit might turn out to be the most popular item at the Newseum in Washington.

The museum about news and the First Amendment has opened “Anchorman: The Exhibit.” It features costumes and props from the 2004 movie “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy,” starring Will Ferrell.

The story of a fictional news team’s sexist reaction to the arrival of an ambitious female reporter was a parody of real tumult in the 1970s TV business.

Curators paired more than 60 costumes and props from the movie with real stories about TV news and the struggle for women to achieve equality in the newsroom.
