'Game of Thrones: The Exhibition' Returns With a Wider Global Reach


Thanks to the success of last year's international traveling "Game of Thrones" exhibit, HBO is bringing it back and expanding the reach. This year, "Game of Thrones: The Exhibition" will be reaching out by visiting Mexico City, Mexico; Austin, Texas at South by Southwest® (SXSW®); Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Oslo, Norway; Toronto, Canada; Belfast, Northern Ireland and Vancouver, Canada. The free exhibition will also be featured as a part of Time Warner Cable Studios in New York City.

What makes this year's exhibit different from last year's? A press release gives details on what's in store, "The 2014 exhibition will feature all-new installations and offer a fresh perspective on the show, focusing on key places and characters/relationships from the series." In addition to be able to get a photo op with the Iron Throne and purchasing official merchandise, there will be "nearly 100 original artifacts from pivotal scenes in seasons 1, 2 and 3, plus select pieces from the fourth season premiering in 2014."

What kind of artifacts? The exhibit will feature "costumes, props, armor and weapons created by artisans whose extraordinary craftsmanship has lent authenticity to the show since its inception including: a magnificent costume display featuring cloaks, dresses and armor; iconic artifacts such as model dragons and eggs; weaponry comprising of crossbows, daggers, spears, hatchets and swords; crowns and headdresses; jewelry; books, letters and maps; House banners; storyboards and much more."
