'Game of Thrones' Goes on Tour With a Worldwide Traveling Exhibit
HBO
How would you like the chance to experience the bloody, fierce, gorgeous world of Westeros (and Essos) in person? Without all the constant threats of torture and death, of course.

Because a brand new 10,000-square foot exhibition of the props, costumes, and backdrops from Game of Thrones is hitting the road, touring around the planet as fans of HBO's fantasy show get the opportunity to see the Iron Throne in person (Cersei Lannister not included). According to a press release, the exhibition will include everything from Castle Black and beyond The Wall down to King's Landing and the King's Road, with other locations like Mereen and the House of Black and White included as well.




In addition to props and costumes, the tour will also include "a unique mix of immersive environments, interactives, and multimedia content", which sounds like it'll recreate various locations from the show, utilizing video clips and footage to create a more tangible Game of Thrones experience.

Titled "Game of Thrones: The Touring Exhibition," the special event is currently unfortunately only scheduled for venues across Europe (which are relatively nice and close to the filming locations where these props are used), but the description of the event does specifically state that the tour is a worldwide event, which suggests that the various props will be packaged up and shipped across the Atlantic to let fans on the American continent see these items up close.

Similar events have toured around in the past, and have generally been well received. There's no solid list of dates and locations just yet, but this should be forthcoming as HBO finalizes where the event will tour. Europe does seem to get frustrating preferential treatment when it comes to Game of Thrones - Spanish fans got the chance to enjoy a special live event with an advanced preview of the show's seventh season that, let's face it, American fans would gladly kill for.

From all we've seen of Game of Thrones' latest batch of costumes and props, the production value for this upcoming season is going to be even better than ever - for those who get the chance to see this event, this will no doubt be a wonderful experience. Even if they probably won't let you sit in the Iron Throne.

In the meantime, Game of Thrones returns to HBO on July 16, 2017.
