Game of Thrones just came to an end yesterday, and regardless of what you think of the show's last season, it has been one hell of a ride. One of the things the show did better than any was take us viewers on a ride through picturesque locations and exquisite scenery throughout the Seven Kingdoms and beyond. Croatia is one of the countries that got the lion's share -- pun intended -- when it came to filming locations. Between Dubrovnik, Šibenik, and Klis, Croatia sure has seen a lot of Game of Thrones. Lucky for the fans, the country didn't stop there. How about a museum commemorating the series to help with the post-GoT blues?
A new Game of Thrones-themed museum opened in the town of Split a week ago, minutes from Diocletian's Palace where Daenerys kept her dragons chained. Spread out across 300 meters of space and with over 100 exhibits, the museum tries to take its guests through a journey across medieval times with its black painted walls and dimmed lights.
And in GoT true fashion, Drogon's giant jaws come out of a wall to welcome visitors to the museum, and it's not the only place where pictures have to be taken. Between the desk of Hand of the King, swords of Valerian steel, and statues of your favorite characters like Jon Snow and Daenerys, and even Hodor doing what he does best, holding the door, a lot of photos will be taken upon your visit.
The museum has 5 themed halls, taking guests throughout Westeros, from King's Landing to Winterfell and beyond the wall, and they'll even get to enter Weirwood Tree.
Guests will come across helmets, swords, skulls, city models, set items, and full armor of the King's Guard. To even add more depth to the tours, there will be expert guides to help people go through the museum, and the guides are experts on not only the show, but also the books. There is a similar exhibition in Belfast also aiming to take guests on a tour across the world of the show, and it's called Game of Thrones: The Touring Exhibition.
