Brickman Cities has arrived at the WA Maritime Museum and the mini-metropolises will be on display until 5th May.
This latest exhibit from LEGO fanaticRyan ‘The Brickman’ McNaught took over 1,500 hours to build and used over 900,000 LEGO Bricks and focuses on some of the world’s greatest cities, London, Sydney, Dubai and Tokyo, exploring their history from early settlement to the modern day cities that we have today.
The exhibit is a lot smaller than his other exhibitions but is more intimate and immersive with a focus on learning and play rather than large scale sculptures.
Each display has it’s own builder zone where kids (and big kids) are offered the opportunity to get hands-on with over half a million LEGO bricks and build what you think the city will look like in the future.
Little kids are not forgotten with their own DUPLO building area.
The centrepiece of the exhibition is a 3-metre x 4-metre scale model of lower Manhattan built entirely of white LEGO pieces. During the one hour session an interactive 3D show takes place with the stories of New York projected onto the LEGO buildings. The story takes visitors from the days of the First People’s villages amongst the swamps of the river delta right up until the present day.
There is a fun competition for a chance to win a $250 LEGO prize pack in which you invited to see how many Brickman Firefighters you can find hidden around the experience. At the entrance of the exhibit, there is an area showcasing the history of LEGO CITY with City Fire Stations from decades ago so will find many of the Firefighters here but don’t forget the ones featured in the Great Fire of London scene!
The Brickman Cities LEGO® experience is one hour in duration. Please arrive at the WA Maritime Museum 15 minutes before your session is due to begin. Consider arriving slightly earlier during busier school holiday periods.
Entry to the Museum and the WA Maritime’s latest exhibition Kylie on Stage is included in your ticket price and you are welcome to explore both before and after your LEGO® experience.
