Game of Thrones fans, rejoice. Your firsthand view of memorabilia and archives from the HBO hit show is just an hour and a half drive away at Texas A&M University's Cushing Memorial Library. 

George R. R. Martin, the author behind the A Song of Ice and Fire books that were adapted for the television series, handpicked the school's library to house his original manuscripts and cherished keepsakes. Martin first visited Texas A&M in the 1970s while attending AggieCon and was impressed with the school's archival system. 

The collection, called "The Wall," boasts correspondence between publishers and showrunners, board games, more than 1,300 copies of books in various translations, lunchboxes, and, of course, swords.

Also featured are Arya's "needle" and Ned's "ice."
