Game of Thrones: The Exhibition Hits Stockholm

Game of Thrones: The Exhibition is in the middle of their second stop this year, in Stockholm, Sweden at the Kungsträdgården. The first installment in London was a huge hit, and this second outing looks to be just as popular. The exhibition opened on Friday, March 7th. Where John Bradley had been in attendance in London, for this Scandinavian leg of the tour, the show trotted out Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.

We’ve got pictures from the event, plus a video below, from MovieZine. Yes, it is all in Swedish, but it’s worth watching because the host, Jonna Vanhatalo, goes through the entire exhibit, testing out all the different games and features. So for those of us in the non-Sky Atlantic zone for whom this will not be stopping by, you can get a good sense of the entire experience.

Check it out below!

As for the pictures:

The website says no ticket–first come first serve.

So the queues were rather impressive.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau showed up to open the event. There were actually quite a few Swedish celebrities that turned out for this event. That might be because they’re half convinced the show is actually set in Sweden.

There are actually five lifts to the “Top of the Wall.” Considering how few men there are that man Castle Black, if that were true in the show, they could almost all go up at once.

Instead patrons just stand in the lifts and experience for themselves. No word if they manage to also replicate the biting cold.

Drogon, in his younger years.

That’s some really awesome cosplay makeup work.

And, of course, everyone has to try the Iron Throne.

Funny that no one tries Joffrey’s crown though… (j/k. I know it’s under glass. Also, Cersei would have someone’s head.)

White walkers are scary, living, dead, or stuffed.

Much like the Mountain’s sword is really impressive when put next to a normal sized person.

  • 2 pm and it was already full for the whole day. Bummer for us who came from a bit further away (Finland) and had to return.

  • I got there just some minutes before 10 am when the Exhibit was going to open and we queued for about 4 hours & 15 minutes before we got to go inside! I think it was already after 2 hours that they announced that the queue was closed for the day, which I can understand because I saw that long queue on the picture with my own eyes, and since we got there when they were going to open and waited for over 4 hours. I expected that the queue would be very long and I actually thought it would be way longer than it was when we arrived but I’m obviously glad it wasn’t!

    The Exhibition have a event-page on Facebook for the Stockholm stop and HBO Nordic wrote afterwards that the first people had arrived at 5am to queue so it’s not so surprising that the wait was so long. Many people were angry and upset at the HBO Nordic people in the event-page for not being able to go inside and some had traveled from other cities (and for the other person who have already commented and came from Finland) but what can you expect? I’m a big fan of many big franchises so I already knew that MANY people would show up and I don’t really understand how you can be not prepared for that because that’s pretty naive to think that you’re the only one who will show up basically.

    The only thing I’m disappointed with is that once we got inside, there was a big queue to try the lifts and you’d have to queue for another hour. When you’ve already queued for over 4 hours, it’s not so nice to have to queue again for an extra hour, so that just annoyed me and we skipped doing that which is sad because that was the thing I had been wanting to do inside. :(

    I would advice everyone else who are going to the Exhibition in other cities to arrive and start queuing as early as possible. That way you don’t have to queue for so long once the Exhibition opens and you won’t risk not being able to go inside! :)
