Before Season 3 premieres on HBO this Sunday, fans of the TV adaptation of George R.R. Martin's Game of Thrones series could get close-up with famous props from the show — including the head of Ned Stark on a pike.



Held at 3 West 57th Street in Midtown Manhattan (through April 3), the exhibit also gives fans of the show the chance to sit on the Iron Throne itself.



The exhibit — which was previously in Toronto and will later head to Amsterdam, Belfast and Sao Paolo — is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on the weekend.
