'Game of Thrones' exhibition opens in Sydney
HBO's hit TV show, Game of Thrones, continues its quest for world domination with an exhibition opening tonight at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney as part of a whirlwind international tour.
On display are nearly 100 original props from the show, including costumes, jewelry and weapons, well with displays of storyboards, location models and more.
Sofia Chang, VP of HBO was in town to launch the Game of Thrones exhibit.
The exhibit's been traveling since the beginning of last year.
It started traveling and it's been to cities like New York and Rio De Janeiro, Oslo, most recently Belfast, Austin, Texas.
And now it's here, and you know, what a tremendous opportunity for us to be here in Australia and share it with the fans here.
There to celebrate the launch of Season 4 on Google Play, we built a mobile app that you can walk around, take your phone and just tap it on the signs.
It'll bring up videos that, you know, interact with the, with the costumes and the sets that you're looking at.
One of the highlights of the exhibition is the virtual reality tour of the infamous wall.
Using Oculus Rift, you can take a bumpy and cold elevator ride to the top of the wall and inspect the frozen wastes far below to look for wildling raiders.
Liam Cunningham who plays Ser Davos Seaworth in the show has been on tour with exhibit.
He was also in Sydney.
Well, the stuff I want I, I tell you how accurate this is.
Have been as you, as you say, I've, I have traveled, traveled a bit around with it.
And my costume was suspiciously missing.
So I thought it might have been an over-eager souvenir hunter but it's not.
It has to get back to to Belfast, where I'm gonna be wearing it in about three, four weeks' time.
So they have to make sure to get back nice and early because as I said, I'm gonna be wearing it.
None of the stuff here are cheap rip-offs.
They're the real deal.
The costumes are, you know, the attention to detail and on the props that we see, the background, the stuff that you don't see on TV.
We've got storyboards over there.
We got you know, there's a huge blend of stuff here that is, if fans are coming in, they're gonna be hugely delighted to see.
I would urge them to get here, the fans.
It's, it's beautiful stuff and it's real and it has to go back.
The Game of Thrones exhibit's on at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney from July 1 til July 5.
