If closed international borders has you down – no need to fret – you can now see 50 of the greatest wonders of the world in LEGO® brick form right here at Queensland Museum.
We’ve pulled together a list of the top four wonders not to miss on your next visit.
1. Space Shuttle
Any fans of Channel Nine’s LEGO Masters Australia won’t want to miss seeing this amazing brick creation in person! It’s the first time one of the creations used in the hit television show will be on display to the public and the only place to see it is at Brickman® Wonders of the World at Queensland Museum. This mammoth shuttle towers at 4.5 metres high, took 775 hours to build and is made with 167,891 LEGO Bricks!
2. Empire State Building
Complete with its own King Kong, clutching a mini-figure – the Empire State Building is one to see up close. Weighing in at 50 kilograms and built with 19700 bricks, this mammoth creation took 79 hours to create. It stands at 2.8 metres high.
The Titanic is a story that is known by many around the world (see if you can spot Jack and Rose!) and is a magnificent sight to behold. Designed by the Brickman team this piece was made with 133,900 bricks, took 240 hours to build and weighs 120 kilograms.
4. Arc De Triomphe
This Paris icon is interactive, with guests able to add their own cars circling the structure. Not only that – there are a number of Easter Eggs within this creation for LEGO fans to keep an eye out for. If you are a Star Wars fan – look closely for some jokes hidden within this creation and if you have an eagle eye you might be able to spot the Emperor Palpatine – but the Brickman masters have said you will be doing a good job if you can find it. The LEGO brick Arc De Triomphe at Queensland Museum weighs in at 45 kilograms, is built with 59,448 bricks and took 170 hours to complete.
