LOUISVILLE, Ky. (March 6, 2017) — The Frazier History Museum, in association with Lionsgate, a premier next generation global content leader, and Imagine Exhibitions, Inc., will host “The Hunger Games: The Exhibition” from April 1 to Sept. 10.
The interactive exhibit invites visitors to step inside and explore the world of Panem as created in the films. More than 1,000 authentic costumes and props, high-tech and hands-on interactives, and detailed set recreations reveal the amazing artistry and technology that brought the incredible story to life. Visitors follow Katniss Everdeen’s inspirational journey, from her humble beginnings in District 12 to her emergence as the Mockingjay. The exhibition features seven galleries including District 12, Tribute Train, The Capitol, Making the Games, District 13, Fan Gallery and Katniss’s Journey.
“The Hunger Games: The Exhibition not only delivers a stunning interactive experience for guests, it also offers them a way to celebrate their hometown hero’s success,” said Frazier History Museum President Penny Peavler. “We are excited to bring a blockbuster exhibit to Louisville that could both ignite the spirit of the people of Kentucky and drive regional tourists to Louisville ’s Main Street and downtown hotels.”
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 exploratory map of Panem, a gamemaker’s control table, and a stunt choreography interactive.
Louisville marks the exhibition s fourth tour stop after its global premiere in New York City, with subsequent stops in San Francisco and Sydney. The film’s star, Jennifer Lawrence, is a Louisville native.
