Game of Thrones Tapestry Exhibition

See Game of Thrones® immortalised in a giant, Bayeux style tapestry, exceeding 77 metres, at the Ulster Museum. From Winterfell to the Iron Islands, this epic tapestry brings to life the infamous events, locations and story of the most popular television series of all time.

Weaving the story from Seasons 1 to 6, this impressive tapestry gives Game of Thrones® fans the perfect chance to reminisce over all the action that led to Season 7. With new sections then added each week as Season 7 airs, it’s a unique way to experience the trials and tribulations of the very latest episodes.

Local Craftmanship

Designed by hand but weaved by a state-of-the-art machine and hand finished in Northern Ireland, the linen used to form the background of the tapestry has been sourced from Ferguson’s Irish Linen, one of the last surviving linen mills in Northern Ireland.

The delicate hand embroidery completed by a team of 30 stitchers at the Ulster Museum and the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum replicates a look consistent with such traditional hand woven cloth. With blood red weddings, golden Lannister hair, emerald green wildfire, cold-blue White Walkers and jet black ravens, admire their chain stitch, split stitch, back stitch, running stitch and seed stitch as you stroll along the tapestry.

From King Joffrey’s golden crown to Daenerys’ shimmering white and silver hair, threads of metallic, cotton and silk yarns bring vibrancy and lustre to the most popular television series of all time.

Admission is free.
