Over the past six-or-so months the WA Maritime Museum in Fremantle has been home to a seriously cool exhibition for kids both big and small: Brickwrecks: Sunken Ships in LEGO® Bricks.
And if you haven’t been able to catch it since it launched last year, well you better set your compass towards Freo and head down there ASAP as the awesome exhibition ends on Sunday 30 January!
Ryan “The Brickman” McNaught is one of only 21 Lego-Certified Professionals in the world, and he and his team spent over 1600 hours using 153,000+ LEGO® bricks bringing the spectacular exhibition to life.
These models are incredibly detailed at an impressive one to three metres in length, and are just part of the fun which also includes multimedia displays, actual objects from some of the wrecks and interactive LEGO® activities including turning one of the models upside-down (something McNaught has never created before).
The models featured include of course the world famous Titanic, along with the infamous Batavia, Pandora, Terror & Erebus, Rena, Vasa, and the ships that sank off Uluburun (Turkey) and the Shinan islands (South Korea).
