Stare in awe at the sinking Titanic, the soaring International Space Station, and other marvels without traveling through time or space.
Massive installments of familiar sights – including the Merlion – all made out of Legos are now on display at Brickman Wonders of the World Lego Brick Exhibition.
The exhibition that opened today at Science Centre Singapore features more than 50 iconic global landmarks built with 1.4 million Lego bricks.
“With COVID-19 pandemic greatly impacting the travel industry, we would like to bring fans and friends of LEGO to re-live travel through exhibits of world-famous landmarks, merging the love for travel and LEGO to provide an engaging experience for all,” said one of the organizers, Weichun Liu.
The traveling exhibition was built by Ryan McNaught, one of only 21 Lego-certified professional builders in the world, and his team of Lego brick artists who dedicated close to 5,000 tedious hours designing and recreating large-scale models of monuments that have toured 10 cities. McNaught is also the managing director of The Brickman, a renowned group made of skilled Lego artists.
Check the Merlion, Tokyo’s subway map, the Taj Mahal, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Great Barrier Reef, and sculptures of Mona Lisa, the Statue of David and the Statue of Liberty, in the Science Centre’s maze-like exhibition hall.
Other notable mentions include the sinking, broken Titanic made with 133,900 bricks in 240 hours, a replica of the International Space Station built with 32,821 bricks in 145 hours, and St. Basil’s Cathedral, made with 71,689 bricks in 320 hours – the longest build time of all.
Tickets are available for sale now via their website at S$22 per person. Children under 2 are admitted for free.
