Megafort returns to the National Building Museum’s Great Hall in an expanded way. On Thursday, January 18, virtually visit forts that inspired the architectural design for HBO’s Game of Thrones, discover the wonders and complexities of fort engineering, create your own family crest and, of course, team up to build your own Megafort! Also, there is an opportunity to sit on the Iron Throne—on loan from King’s Landing the Game of Thrones Pop-Up Bar.
