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).
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.
