television series – HBO’s Emmy® and Golden Globe®-winning Game of
Thrones – will come alive for fans in an immersive, not-to-be-missed

best-selling books, Game of Thrones is an intricate and visually
stunning epic series that has captured the imagination of fans

treasure trove of more than 70 original artifacts from seasons 1 and
2, plus select pieces from this year’s new season.

Built by New Project LLC, the exhibition includes:

Costumes, props, armor and weapons– Artisans, whose superb
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 show’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 Joffrey’s
crossbow, daggers and swords such as “Ice” and “Longclaw”), armor
(helmets, shields and full suits of armor worn by key characters in
the show), crowns, jewelry, books and much more.
