Brick City

St Pancras

2 April - 30 June 2022 *New end date*

Please note: the final day of Brick City will now be Thursday 30 June (not 3 July as originally advertised).  This is to accommodate essential maintenance to the building. Thank you for your understanding.

 

What is Brick City?

It is an exhibition of over 25 models of iconic buildings from cities around the world, recreated in LEGO® bricks.

 

Who made all the amazing models?

Artist Warren Elsmore and his team.  It is a touring exhibition and was previously in the USA.  After the Guernsey tour, it is going to Edinburgh.

 

What can we expect from the exhibition?

It is the ultimate around-the-world tour in LEGO® bricks.  It's not just about bricks though - it's also great for learning about geography, history, design and culture.  You can discover highlights of cities across all seven continents, from New Zealand to New Orleans, New York to Mecca - and medieval Japan to modern Las Vegas.  There are new urban highlights among more recognisable icons. The centrepiece is the magnificent 180,000 piece London St Pancras Station. 

 

When can I visit?

The exhibition is open every day 10.00-17.00, including Bank Holidays. The final day is Sunday 3 July.

 

Do I need to book a ticket?

No, we do not take any bookings.  Just turn up and you can buy a ticket on arrival.

£6.50 - Adults

£2.00 - Children (under 18) & students (with valid student card)

FREE - Children under 7 years

FREE - Discovery Pass holders and accompanying under 18s with them

Can I see some photographs of the exhibition before I visit?

Yes.  Please download our visual guide below. You can always contact us on 226518 or museums@gov.gg.  We welcome education bookings and can arrange out-of-hours access for special groups. Please contact us for a chat.

 

I am visiting with children - is there anything extra for them to do?

Wonderful!  Brick City is for all ages.  Most of the models are for admiring and not touching, but there is a 'graffiti wall' in the lobby for children to get hands-on with.  Also in the lobby, you can pick up a trail or questionnaire for the exhibition at no extra charge. (Don't forget your sticker on the way out!)  You can read a review of Brick City by IslandFamilies here.

 

I like a quiet Museum.  When should I visit?

Rainy days are usually the busiest and sunny days, especially during school time, are normally the quietest.  We hold a Quiet Hour every Monday 16.00-17.00 and there's more information in the visual guide below.

 

How can I find out more about access?

Guernsey Museum has been fully audited by AccessAble.  Click here for detailed information about the Museum in general - including access, parking, toilets, background music and more. If you find the exhibition font too small, there are large print folders in the lobby.   

 

We hope you have a wonderful visit.
