First launched in 2016
Our all-new fully interactive LEGO® brick exhibition which is all about things which are amazing, unique, record-breaking or just plain awesome! You’ve never seen LEGO® like this before!
Marking Ryan’s third exhibition made entirely from LEGO® bricks, Brickman Awesome showcases the tallest LEGO® model in the Southern Hemisphere – a NASA SLS rocket standing at a whopping 7.5m tall and built from more than 450,000 bricks! Taking more than 500 hours to create, Ryan has pushed LEGO® building boundaries by installing an in-built lighting system giving the effect that the rocket is blasting off into space.
The exhibition is made up of 37 never-seen-before LEGO® models, totalling more than 2 million bricks and clocking up almost 5,000 hours of build-time! The exhibition also showcases the first life-sized LEGO® Harley Davidson ever made and features the largest ever LEGO® Caterpillar 797 dump truck! Adding to the awesome-ness is a full-sized LEGO® saltwater crocodile, weighing over 60kgs and built using more than 40,000 LEGO® bricks!
If that’s not awesome enough, visitors will be forgiven for thinking they have stepped inside a zoo as they find themselves surrounded by a LEGO® Emperor Penguins, a giant 2.5m tall LEGO DUPLO® Orca Whale and more!
So far we’ve had smash hit tours of Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Adelaide, Hobart and Newcastle and so far over 100,000 Kiwis have visited us at Auckland Museum! Our season in Auckland is now extended until 2 May:
