Unleash Your Inner Kidult At This Huge LEGO® Brick Exhibition

By Sophie Oddo

A LEGO display.

It doesn’t get much more nostalgic than LEGO® bricks and luckily for us, Queensland Museum is transporting us back to our childhood with their Brickman® Wonders of the World exhibition.

Expect anything but a typical museum exhibition. Here you’ll witness history’s greatest masterpieces—you guessed it—made entirely with LEGO® bricks.

Witness creations from all corners of the globe from the Great Wall of China and Taj Mahal to the Empire State Building. This one-of-a-kind exhibition will take you on an interactive trip throughout history you won’t be forgetting anytime soon.

Bringing these epic masterpieces to life is ‘The Brickman’, a team of skilled LEGO® bricks artists and craftspeople, led by Ryan McNaught, aka ‘The Brickman’. McNaught is one of only 14 LEGO® Certified Professionals in the world and the only one in the Southern Hemisphere. So, it’s kind of a big deal. In 2019, he even joined Channel Nine’s new hit TV show LEGO® Masters Australia, as the main competition judge alongside host Hamish Blake. So it’s safe to say his creds check out.

Prepare for your jaw to hit the floor when you see the four-metre high ‘Space Shuttle’, holding the title as the tallest, heaviest and most time-consuming build from this year’s LEGO® Masters Australia show. They’ll also be showcasing The Titanic, which is the second heaviest build, (coming in at a whopping 120kg), and the longest creation, the Tokyo subway map, which is over four metres long. 

You’ll be able to experience more than 50 awe-inspiring displays from Asia, Europe, America, the Ancient Wonders, Technology and Transport and even our very own Great Barrier Reef.

What are you waiting for? Discover the secrets behind how these epic constructions were built, brick by brick and even create your own masterpiece.
