2022: Brick City

St Pancras

2 April - 30 June 2022

Brick City was a celebration of iconic buildings from cities around the world, carefully recreated in LEGO® bricks. It was a touring exhibition on loan from Warren Elsmore and his team. 

Visitors discovered highlights of cities across five continents, including lively celebrations in Rio and New York, tall towers from Copenhagen to Venice, and imaginative castles from medieval Japan to modern Las Vegas. The Brian White Gallery featured over 25 models of iconic buildings.

As part of the exhibition, the Museum launched a Brick Bailiwick Challenge and invited the public to recreate a Bailiwick building in LEGO® bricks. Twenty six models were displayed in the foyer and you can view some here.

For the first time, Museum staff created a visual guide for the exhibition.  This can be downloaded below.

The exhibition was reviewed by IslandFamilies and the review can be read here.
