‘The Hunger Games: The Exhibition’ to open this July in NYC

The Hunger Games: The Exhibition will start its tour across the world beginning this summer in New York City.

Discovery Times Square, a venue that’s been used to host lots of exhibitions over the years, including one for Harry Potter, will open The Hunger Games exhibition on July 1, 2015.

In a press release, Lionsgate shared what kinds of attractions you’ll find within The Hunger Games exhibition: “Hundreds of authentic costumes and props, high-tech and hands-on interactives and detailed set recreations reveal the amazing artistry and technology that brought these incredible books to life. Visitors will follow Katniss Everdeen’s inspirational journey, from her humble beginnings in District 12 to her emergence as the Mockingjay, sparking curiosity and excitement. The exhibit will feature seven galleries including District 12, Tribute Train, The Capitol, Making the Games, District 13, Fan Gallery and Katniss’s Journey.

“Highlights include iconic costumes from the films such as the Girl on Fire dress, the Mockingjay dress and the Mockingjay armor; key artifacts including the Mockingjay pin, Cinna’s sketchbook and Katniss’s bow; and interactives including an explorable map of Panem, gamemaker’s control table and a stunt choreography interactive.”

The numbers of items they’re including in the exhibition is impressive. We’re sure one of the most popular aspects will be the opportunity to see Katniss’ dresses in person. The gamemaker’s control table should also be a cool sight to behold given its size and detail.

Lionsgate’s Senior VP of Location Based Entertainment spoke of why the films yield such a cool exhibit: “Through a dynamic series of interactives, never before seen content, and immersive environments, guests will connect to The Hunger Games in a one-of-kind experience. The application of the film’s science, technology, and real world problem solving also translate to a valuable educational experience that will resonate with school groups and visitors alike. We are thrilled to be launching this first ever interactive experience that will serve our global fan base and attract a new audience to the powerful Hunger Games franchise.”

Tickets for The Hunger Games: The Exhibition go on sale April 21 with tickets starting at $22.50. The exhibit will stay in New York City through January 3, 2016.
