The traveling exhibition will be at the Innovation Hangar at San Francisco's Palace of Fine Arts Exhibition Hall starting in February, following a July 1 debut in New York.

Lionsgate's The Hunger Games: The Exhibition is set to make a stop in San Francisco after an initial six-month run in New York City, it was announced Monday.

The studio unveiled plans for a run from Feb. 2016 at the Innovation Hangar at San Francisco's Palace of Fine Arts Exhibition Hall. Fans of the world of Panem will first see traveling exhibition in New York this summer, starting on July 1.

The immersive exhibit, a partnership between Lionsgate and Imagine Exhibitions, is designed by theme park creator Thinkwell Group. The interactive tour of the Hunger Games world will invite visitors to step inside and explore the world of Panem, as created by Lionsgate's YA movie franchise.

The traveling exhibition, to feature iconic costumes, props and set re-creations, will eventually fill major museums and institutions across the U.S. and internationally. The exhibit will feature seven galleries: District 12, Tribute Train, The Capitol, Making the Games, District 13, Fan Gallery and Katniss' Journey.

Lionsgate is also planning theme park attractions and other location-based entertainment opportunities as it looks to generate new revenues from its Hunger Games franchise.
