Game of Thrones fans will soon have a chance to brave the icy winds that howl across The Wall that protects George R. R. Martin’s fantasy world of Westeros.
Well, sort of.
An interactive virtual reality experience, which will give fans 360-degree panoramic views over Castle Black, is just one of the delights on offer when Game of Thrones: The Exhibition opens in Sydney as part of its international tour.
Fans will also be able to snap a picture of themselves atop the Iron Throne – welcome news for devotees who missed the chance to do so when Throne made a brief appearance in Martin Place in March.
The free exhibition, which will be housed in the Museum of Contemporary Art from July 1-5, will also feature over 100 original artefacts from the show’s first four seasons (we’re not sure how many of those are severed heads), including a selection of dresses, cloaks and armour from the show’s Emmy-award nominated costume department.
Model dragons and eggs used in the Khaleesi story-arch will also be on display only, alongside an array of the show’s signature intricate weaponry including crossbows, daggers, swords and hatchets.
Sydney is the exhibition’s only Australian stop on an international tour that has so far included Toronto, Belfast, Rio de Janeiro, and Austin, Texas.
