With Season 3 of HBO’s hit fantasy drama Game of Thrones just around the corner (premiering in America March 31), fans of the incredible world originally created in the novels of George R. R. Martin can enjoy an immersive experience in the Kingdom of Westeros with the Game of Thrones Exhibition, which will be traveling to various international venues beginning in March.
Presented by HBO and international partners, the exhibition is free to the public and focuses on key characters from five of the noble houses featured in Game of Thrones (Stark, Lannister, Targaryen, Baratheon and Greyjoy), showcasing more than 70 original artifacts from Seasons 1 and 2, plus select pieces from the upcoming Season 3.
The Game of Thrones Exhibition includes:
Costumes, props, armor and weaponsâ€“ Artisans, whose craftsmanship has provided authenticity to the medieval world of the show, worked closely with HBO to curate the exhibit with items including: an impressive costume display overseen by the showâ€™s costume designer Michele Clapton, who dressed the mannequins to ensure accuracy in the presentation of the extraordinarily detailed garments, iconic artifacts such as model dragons, weaponry (King Joffreyâ€™s crossbow, daggers and swords such as â€śIceâ€ť and â€śLongclawâ€ť), armor (helmets, shields and full suits of armor worn by key characters in the show), crowns, jewelry, books and more.
Backwater Bay Interactive Experience â€“ Fans will get an opportunity to participate in an interactive experience that will place them amid the action of the epic battle of Blackwater Bay from Season 2.
Iron Throne â€“ Fans will be able to take their photo on a precise replica of the iron throne from the series.
The exhibit will also display an array of official Game of Thrones licensed collectable merchandise from the HBO Shop.
