Brick­man: Won­ders of the World

Mel­bourne’s big­gest ever LEGO ex­hi­bi­tion comes to the Mel­bourne Mu­seum this month

Time Out (Melbourne) - - THINGS TO DO -


World is the new in­ter­ac­tive ex­hi­bi­tion brought to you by Ryan ‘The Brick­man’ Mc­naught (pic­tured be­low) – an all-round LEGO wiz­ard based in Mel­bourne and the only LEGO Cer­ti­fied Pro­fes­sional (yes, that’s a thing) in the South­ern Hemi­sphere. “I am thrilled to be bring­ing my brand new ex­hi­bi­tion,

Won­ders of the World, to Mel­bourne – my home­town and home to my LEGO work­shop where all the cre­ativ­ity and build­ing hap­pens,” says Mc­naught. “This ex­hi­bi­tion is a col­lec­tion of my most am­bi­tious works. Ev­ery model is brand new, and in­fin­itely more de­tailed than any­thing I’ve ever cre­ated.”

The ex­hi­bi­tion of­fers the chance to wit­ness mankind’s most amaz­ing achieve­ments mas­ter­fully recre­ated by Mc­naught in LEGO form. More than 50 of his models will be on dis­play, in­clud­ing LEGO ver­sions of the Arc de Tri­om­phe in Paris, New York City’s Em­pire State Build­ing (which nat­u­rally fea­tures a mini King Kong), Lon­don’s Big Ben, Italy’s Lean­ing Tower of Pisa and even a LEGO ver­sion of that Floren­tine icon, Michelan­gelo’s ‘David’ statue. There’s also a LEGO Mount Rush­more, a Great LEGO Wall of China, a LEGO Krem­lin and more.

Vis­i­tors can ex­pect an ed­u­ca­tional jour­ney through his­tory, with fun facts about each at­trac­tion on dis­play. Keen lit­tle builders can get busy in the hands-on in the mas­ter builder zones.

The ex­hi­bi­tion is open daily and book­ing ahead is ad­vised. It takes about 90 min­utes to get through the whole show and ar­riv­ing 15 min­utes early is ad­vised. ■ Re­becca Russo àmel­bourne Mu­seum, 11 Ni­chol­son St, Carl­ton 3053. mu­se­umvic­to­ mel­bourne­mu­seum/.
