Brick History: Walk through history in LEGO® Bricks

6 Jul 2018 - 16 Sep 2018

Brick History: Walk through history in LEGO® Bricks

This summers temporary exhibition!

Join us this summer with our hands on interactive exhibition on all things ‘Brick History’!

Journey through pivotal moments in world history, modelled in LEGO® bricks by Warren Elsmore and his team of artists. Forget dry lists of kings or endless battles – this is history brought to life featuring key figures from Mozart to Martin Luther King, scientific discoveries from the Big Bang to DNA, and recent history from mobile phones to the moon landings.

The exhibition is displayed with different themes and an interactive zone, where you can take part in our social media competition!

This exhibition is included in your entry ticket to The Dockyard.
