Brickwrecks: Sunken ships in LEGO® bricks heads west!

By Cassandra Hart, Editor @ Kids In Perth 20 Jun 2021



An awesome new exhibition using LEGO® bricks tells the stories of some of the world’s most fascinating shipwrecks.

Ryan “The Brickman” McNaught and his team spent over 1,600 hours, used over 153,000 LEGO® bricks, and had a tonne of fun bringing these models to life.
Children and adults will be amazed at the large-scale models, multi-media displays, and authentic objects from the wrecks. Children can take part in their own build - and even get to turn one of the model wrecks upside-down (something The Brickman team has never created before!).

The models featured in the exhibition are between 1 - 3 metres in length, and include the Titanic, Batavia, Pandora, Terror and Erebus, Rena, Vasa, and the ships that sank off Uluburun (Turkey) and the Shinan islands (South Korea).

Sneak Peek

Brickwrecks: Sunken ships in LEGO® bricks! is a partnership between Ryan “The Brickman” McNaught, the Western Australian Museum, and the Australian National Maritime Museum. Ryan “The Brickman” McNaught is a LEGO® Certified Professional, and one of only 14 in the world and the only one in the Southern Hemisphere.
