HBO is launching its first-ever traveling Game of Thrones exhibit – free of charge to the public – that will immerse audiences in the lives of key characters from the show’s five noble houses: Stark, Lannister, Targaryen, Baratheon and Greyjoy. Announced today, the exhibit will feature more than 70 original artifacts spanning seasons one and two, as well as select pieces from this year’s highly anticipated third season.
Featured items include costumes, props, armor and weapons selected by artisans who worked closely with the network to curate the exhibit. Fans will have the opportunity to join an interactive experience that puts them in the center of the infamous battle of Blackwater Bay from season two, and can also have a photo taken on a precise replica of the series’ Iron Throne. In addition, official Game of Thrones licensed collectable merchandise from the HBO Shop will be on display.
The international Game of Thrones exhibition kicks off next month with stops in Toronto, New York, Sao Paulo, Amsterdam and Belfast. Visit hbo.com/gameofthrones for details on the tour cities, updates and more information.
