You could be sitting on the Iron Throne in Tel Aviv

There are a great many television shows that generate niche followings, and then there are the global phenomena that keep everyone talking. The American fantasy drama Game of Thrones, which airs on HBO, falls into the latter category.

Game of Thrones was adapted in 2011 from the same-titled first book of George R.R. Martin's wildly popular A Song of Ice and Fire four-part series. It's signature catch phrase, "Winter is coming," when heard, often signals the new season's premiere is soon to follow.

In 2012, an exhibition showcasing iconic artifacts, original scripts and costumes from its production travelled the world to transport fans to the epic world of Westeros and beyond. Having completed the North Amercian leg of its third annual tour in 2014, it has just been announced the exhibition will once again travel the world to seven international destinations..

Winter will come (in spring) to Israel with a stop in Tel Aviv this April during Passover (April 5-9). Other stops along the way will include London, Stockholm, Madrid, Berlin, Paris and Amsterdam.

If you have not yet attended the exhibition, here's a taste of what you'd see.
