A new exhibit from the hit show "Game of Thrones" will kick off in Toronto, followed by stops in a number of other countries.

Items from the set as well as costumes and armour will visit Toronto, New York, Sao Paulo, Amsterdam, and Belfast, Northern Ireland, according to an article in the National Post. After finishing production on season 3 of the series, the network announced plans to put such items on display much to the delight of fans the world over. More than 70 artifacts will be featured.

HBO Canada hosted a similar event last year after season 2 at the TIFF Bell Lightbox, which was very well-received.

"Game of Thrones" is based on the bestselling book series by George R.R. Martin and is an epic drama set in the grounded fantasy continent of Westeros, where ambitious men and women of both honor and ill-repute live in a land where summers and winters can last years. It stars Lena Headey ("Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles"), Peter Dinklage ("Ice Age: Continental Drift"), Maisie Williams ("The Secret of Crickley Hall"), and Michelle Fairley ("Silent Witness").

The event is free but requires tickets, which are available February 21st, and will take place March 9-16 at The Design Exchange, Toronto.

The third season of "Game of Thrones" debuts on March 31st.
