New 'Game of Thrones' Museum Opens in Split, Croatia
"Game of Thrones" fans will come to the end of a very long, very bloody adventure through the lands of Westeros on Sunday as HBO airs the final episode of its hit television series. It's anyone's guess who is going to win the game of thrones — or maybe, as George R.R. Martin has been telling us for years, everyone dies.
But the GoT series will live on in some ways. The television show has been a boon to locales where it was filmed, including Iceland, Northern Ireland, Spain and Croatia. And fans now have yet another way to get their GoT fix at a new museum that opened recently in Split, Croatia.
The Game of Thrones Museum is the latest in fan attractions around the Split area, which also includes the Diocletian’s cellars where Daenerys chained her dragons. “Everything is just like in the series. The exhibits are exact replicas of scenes, symbols and characters from the GoT,” Luka Gaelic, the person behind museum told the Croatia Times. “Over forty people worked on this project, all of them huge fans of HBO’s dark fable that we wanted to present here.”
Fans can geek out over swords, costumes, set items, skulls and even a full set of King's Guard armor. The museum features five rooms, each themed around a location in the show such as Meereen, King's Landing, Winterfell and even a trip inside the Weirwood tree beyond the wall.
The new museum is just the latest in a number of attractions that will allow fans of the hit show to continue to enjoy everything GoT long after Sunday's series finale. If you want to take your fandom to the next level check out these other GoT posts for more information:
