MELBOURNE MUSEUM TO HOUSE OVER 1 MILLION LEGO® BRICKS WHEN BRICKTIONARY: THE INTERACTIVE LEGO® EXHIBITION OPENS THIS SEPTEMBER
Created by one of the world’s leading LEGO® brick artists and only LEGO® Certified Professional (LCP) in the southern hemisphere, Ryan ‘The Brickman’ McNaught, this brand-new exhibition is based on his latest book, The Bricktionary: The Ultimate A-Z of LEGO®.
Built to inspire the imaginations of LEGO® fans of all ages, and challenge visitors with 6 interactive build zones, the exhibition will feature over 150 models from McNaught’s book and models from television’s LEGO® Masters Australia. The exhibition also includes 45 new brick models from the imaginations of The Brickman team, ranging from life-size animals to creations based on the builder’s favourite things.
Ryan ‘The Brickman’ McNaught said: “I am so excited to be presenting my brand-new show, Bricktionary: The Interactive LEGO® brick Exhibition at The Melbourne Museum. This exhibition is based on my new book, The Bricktionary, and is all about using LEGO® bricks to inspire and celebrate the power of imagination.
“With over 150 models to inspire you, millions of LEGO® bricks to build and play with, and 6 all-new build zones, (including an Earthquake challenge), I can’t wait to see what Melbournians create!”.
Bricktionary: The Interactive Exhibition is a whole new type of LEGO® brick experience. The exhibition not only includes all the creations from the book, but also showcases some of the biggest and latest LEGO® brick models, including models from LEGO® Masters Australia that have never been on display before in Melbourne.
Linda Sproul, Director Exhibitions and Audience Experiences, Museums Victoria said: “We are excited to welcome the Brickman team to Melbourne Museum for this colourful and fun exhibition. LEGO® inspires creativity in both kids and big kids at heart. At Melbourne Museum we understand the power and importance of play-based learning and are thrilled to offer our visitors the chance to let their imaginations run wild with this wondrous exhibition.”
