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.
