Brick City LEGO exhibition coming to Leicester Museum and Art Gallery

Leicester Museum and Art Gallery will reopen next week and when it does will be hosting a LEGO exhibition, Brick City.

Originally intended to arrive at the museum earlier this year, Brick City will be coming to the renamed Leicester Museum and Art in Leicester, UK, on Monday, August 17. The venue is reopening with special measures in place to help reduce the spread of coronavirus.

The museum is free to visit, with information on the required advance bookings available at the Leicester Museums website. Face masks are currently required to enter.

Warren Elsmore’s LEGO exhibition will open from 11.00am until 4.30pm during the week and from 11.00am until 5.00pm on weekends. It will be in place at the museum until November 22.

Brick City recreates iconic buildings from around the world in LEGO elements, including skyscrapers from New York to Mecca and castles from medieval Japan to modern Las Vegas. The Roman Colosseum, London 2012 Olympic Park and London St Pancras Station will all be part of the exhibition.

Leicester’s Highcross Shopping Centre is currently hosting Brickman Experience, an exhibition from LEGO Certified Professional Ryan McNaught.
