Before Season 3 premieres on HBO this Sunday, fans of the TV adaptation of George R.R. Martin's Game of Thrones series could get close-up with famous props from the show -- including the head of Ned Stark on a pike.

Held at 3 West 57th Street in Midtown Manhattan (through April 3), the exhibit also gives fans of the show the chance to sit on the Iron Throne itself.

The exhibit -- which was previously in Toronto and will later head to Amsterdam, Belfast and Sao Paolo -- is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on the weekend.

Another disappointed person here. We waited for nearly EIGHT hours. Luckily, the night we went (Saturday), they had extended the hours until 9pm, otherwise we'd had waited for nothing. Once inside, it was so crowded that I didn't even get to see everything. Then, they rushed people so fast through the iron throne pictures, that I barely sat in the seat and they snapped a horrible picture. I asked if they could retake it, and the rude guy replied "NEXT! keep the line moving. exit THIS WAY." I complained to no avail, because I didn't wait 8 hours for nothing. My picture never even came up or printed out, nor did about a dozen after me. They had to fix the cameras and allowed everyone who didn't get their pictures to go again. This would have made me happy,  BUT, THEY ALLOWED A GROUP OF PEOPLE TO GO UP AND TAKE THEIR OWN PICTURES. People who  weren't on the line at all, so not only did they skip the line, but they were up there for at least 5 minutes taking their own pictures. I asked if I could just do that too, and I was told "No, you have to wait for the camera to be fixed." How is that fair? Next time, you guys need better organization and a happier staff. Perhaps make it ticketed so there aren't hundreds of people crammed into a small space. Get your act together.

My experience at was quite atrocious. Can't say t wasn't expected. It's a shame @HBO associates the exhibit with Time Warner.

@TWC @HBO it sucks that people can't get in. Especially if you're waiting for hours and told you can if you're in the baracades!
