For fans of the television show this is a wonderful immersive experience. We went for my mum’s birthday! The location: The Castle at the Park Plaza Hotel, Boston, MA, US, formerly an armory. All photos are by me — some are dark because no flash was allowed. Photo of the entrance is below.
No spoilers here but the exhibit is quite large. But our favorite section was the set recreation. Here is one view of the kitchen. Leaving the rest for interested people to see and experience for themselves when they visit.

If you are a fan there is a lot more to see and experience — again not disclosing spoilers. The tickets were a bit high but it was a gift/outing for a birthday so it was worth it. If you are not a fan and want to get interested for the upcoming movie — this will an enjoyable outing as well.
