Is it just us, or is anything recreated in Lego form suddenly about a thousand times cuter? Well, Brisbane’s City Hall has now gotten the Lego treatment, meaning that building in the CBD you’ve passed a hundred times before suddenly got a whole lot more interesting.
You’ll be able to see the miniature version of the historic building at City Hall from from Saturday 27 June to Thursday 30 July, with the model created to celebrate City Hall's 100th birthday. If we were you though, we'd wait until 17 July, when Museum of Brisbane is re-opening its doors to the public. Just like QAGOMA (check out when they’re re-opening here), Queensland Museum and a heap of other cultural centres around Brisbane, MoB has been closed since March due to COVID, but now they’re ready to welcome us back, and with a model made of some 40,000 Lego bricks to check out while we're there, we’ll definitely be the first through the doors.
Also on show will be The Storytellers, an exhibition that uncovers Brisbane’s histories, myths and tales through stories by the likes of Trent Dalton, Nick Earls, Benjamin Law and Kate Morton. An immersive and interactive experience combining objects, artworks and written and narrated histories, it’s a journey into Brisbane’s many identities.
Museum of Brisbane will be open from Friday 17 July, with the Lego model on display at City Hall from Saturday 27 June, and you can see what else will be showing and find out more here.
