Famous items from the late Farrah Fawcett will be on display Wednesday at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American history in Washington, D.C.

They will be part of an American pop culture exhibit which includes Dorothy's ruby red slippers and the original Muppet team.

The red swimsuit Fawcett wore in an iconic 1976 poster, the first Farrah Fawcett doll, her personal Charlie's angels script book and photos are just some of the actress' items that will be showcased.

The memorabilia will be presented by her long-time partner Ryan O'Neal.

O'Neal said it's an honor to be able to share some of Fawcett's items.

Fawcett died in 2009 from cancer at age 62.
