The famous Game of Thrones tapestry is back at Ulster Museum!

Spot your favourite moments throughout the tapestry with depictions of all the key scenes from the internationally successful television series, much of it filmed across Northern Ireland. 

The 87 metre long woven and embroidered tapestry was commissioned in 2017 by Tourism Ireland, in partnership with Tourism Northern Ireland and HBO, to celebrate Game of Thrones becoming a part of Northern Ireland’s culture and heritage. 

The tapestry is entirely hand woven, of linen, with cotton and metallic threads used to highlight hand embroidered details. A team of stitchers, drawn from National Museums NI staff and volunteers from local textile guilds worked together in 2017, and again in 2019, to collectively add over 1,000 hours of hand embroidered highlights to the tapestry. 

This is a free exhibition and booking is not necessary. Ulster Museum is open from 10am to 5pm from Tuesday through Sunday.
