A free exhibition that takes famous moments from history and imagines them in LEGO bricks. LEGO artist Warren Elsmore and his team have created a celebration of our shared stories, struggles, and triumphs, made from everyone’s favourite Danish toy.
From tiny recreations of Concorde and the Titanic that could fit in your hand, to a 1.5m square medieval castle bustling with activity.
Featuring 30 models and dioramas designed to make you smile and to make you think. There will be some LEGO to play with – so visitors can be inspired and get creative!
History Centre Opening Hours: Monday – Friday 9.30am – 5.30pm, Saturday 9.00am – 4:30pm, Sunday – closed
