Hereford Museum & Art Gallery is thrilled to welcome LEGO®: Brick History this spring – an exhibition guaranteed to delight families and fans of all ages.

Opening on Saturday 16 March 2019, Warren Elsmore’s Brick History takes famous moments from history and imagines them in LEGO® bricks. From DNA and the Big Bang to Mozart, Martin Luther King and mobile phones, 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.

Judith Stevenson, Museum Team Leader for Hereford Museum & Art Gallery, said:

“We are delighted to welcome Brick History to Hereford Museum & Art Gallery this spring. The exhibition is sure to delight all generations; reliving moments in history through inspirational models, an activity zone with  soft bricks and LEGO® building and modelling for all ages, plus special ‘Family Saturday’ and holiday activities and the chance to display your own models. We expect the exhibition to be very popular – especially over the Easter holidays – so book your tickets well in advance.”
