Louisville is only the fourth stop of the global touring exhibit, which started in New York City and hopped to San Francisco and Sydney, Australia, as well.

“‘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.”

The display will feature more than 1,000 authentic costumes and props from the Lionsgate films, as well as high-tech and hands-on experiences, detailed set recreations and much more. It’ll include seven galleries with titles like District 12, Tribute Train, The Capitol, District 13 and Katniss’s Journey, among others.

From Katniss’ bow to the Mockingjay pin, memorabilia from the film will be the highlight for fans of the series.

Tickets, which are now on sale, start at $26. A discounted pack of four tickets starts at $90.
