Fans never tire of getting a peek behind the scenes of Game of Thrones, which is why the Game of Thrones Exhibitions have been such a smash every year since their creation. Now, just ahead of the season seven premiere, HBO has announced their return.
HBO is light on the specifics in their announcement but we’re intrigued all the same. What do we know so far? Game of Thrones: The Touring Exhibition will tour the world this fall. The tour will kick off in Europe, but the specific dates and cities have not yet been announced. Details about the exhibition and its stops will be released in the coming months, according to HBO.
Like in its previous incarnations, the exhibition will showcase genuine props, costumes, armor, weapons and set decorations from throughout Game of Thrones, including the newest season. The network states that global events provider GES will be creating a new 10,000-square-foot interactive experience for the Game of Thrones Touring Exhibition.
The exhibit will not just display props, but will feature “a unique mix of immersive environments, interactives, and multimedia content,” with visitors able to experience “the mythical lands of Westeros and Essos and relive the trials and tribulations of the series’ nobles and common folk alike who struggle for survival in the shadow of the Iron Throne.”
Guests will reportedly be able to explore several themed exhibit areas from Game of Thrones such as:
“The wintry landscapes of the North, the tree-lined pathway of the King’s Road, and the regal settings of King’s Landing.
The conquered city of Meereen with its garrisons of Unsullied warriors and the loyalists of House Targaryen.
Iconic settings like the mysterious House of Black and White, the home of the Night’s Watch: Castle Black; and the frozen lands Beyond the Wall.
The show stopping centerpiece of the iconic Iron Throne Room, where visitors can gaze upon the Westerosi seat of power in all its foreboding glory.”
Sounds incredible to me! Hopefully it will make its way over to the USA, but it’s great that Europeans will get a chance to experience a special exhibit, as fans across the world don’t always get the same opportunities that we do here in North America!
