Calling all Game of Thrones heads! A museum dedicated to the HBO series has opened in Split. The city is one of the filming locations used in the series, alongside Dubrovnik, which famously doubles up as the King's Landing. Located near Diocletian’s cellars where Daenerys keeps her dragons, the museum is packed full of props, costumes and knick-knacks from the series.

Life-sized statues of the show's most popular characters are dotted around the museum, from Jon Snow to Daenerys and Tyrion to Hodor. The permanent exhibition is composed of five themed rooms, starting at the Split-inspired Meereen, the Dubrovnik-themed King's Landing, Winterfell and Weirwood tree, where guests enter through a hole in the tree.

Game of Thrones guides are also available, where storytellers take visitors on geeky tours around the museum. So far, the museum has had mixed reviews - but if you want to try it yourself, stop by The Game of Thrones Museum on Bosanska ulica 9, open daily from 9am to 10pm.
