One of only 14 LEGO Certified Professionals globally, Ryan McNaught (aka Brickman) brings the world’s most iconic landmarks made exclusively from LEGO bricks to Te Papa.

Ryan and his team spent a jaw-dropping 5,000 hours building the 50 LEGO masterpieces on display including the Taj Mahal, Michelangelo’s Statue of David, Great Wall of China, Empire State Building (complete with King Kong), Leaning Tower of Pisa, and Arc de Triomphe.

But it’s not just about looking – there will be plenty of hands-on opportunities to pick up some bricks and get building yourself as well as a range of activities for young and old.

Keep an eye out for our changing programme of activities and events for children and adults to enjoy over this two-month festival of LEGO activities.
