Brick City is a celebration of iconic buildings from cities around the world, carefully recreated in LEGO bricks by artist Warren Elsmore and his team.
The unique exhibition is being displayed at the Leicester Museum & Art Gallery on New Walk, featuring over 30 buildings from cities across all seven continents.
This includes lively celebrations from New Zealand to New Orleans, tall skyscrapers from New York to Mecca, and imaginative castles from medieval Japan to modern Las Vegas.
Enjoy discovering new urban highlights as well as some more recognisable icons. You’ll be able to see surprising common ground between buildings thousands of years and miles apart, such as the Roman Colosseum and the London 2012 Olympic Park.
The magnificent centrepiece of the exhibition is London St Pancras Station, measuring two by four metres. Whether you have thousands of LEGO® bricks or just a few, you’ll be inspired to make your own creations and celebrate where you live.
Unfortunately, the new coronavirus restrictions mean only 200 people can be accomodated in the museum at any one time, so visitors do need to pre-book their visits to avoid disappointment.
The exhibition will be running up until 22 November 2020. Tickets are free and visits can be booked online at www.leicestermuseums.org/book-tickets or by calling the museum directly on 0116 225 4900.
