A new LEGO exhibit launches today at the Historic Dockyard, Chatham.

As The Historic Dockyard in Chatham, Kent, UK celebrates its 400th birthday, Brick History will be coming to the venue, a special exhibit that leads guests through 13.8 billion years of history.

The venue is the only place in the world where visitors can explore a complete dockyard from the age of sail and beyond. The popular tourist destination celebrates Britain’s extensive maritime history.

Starting today, visitors will be able to see a LEGO exhibition that follows a timeline that starts all the way back with the big bang. Warren Elsmore’s displays will include explorations of arts, equality, conflict, exploration and transport throughout the years. Particularly relevant to the Historic Dockyard will be the Battle of Trafalgar display, showcasing the Chatham built HMS Victory.

It is not only models on display though, as visitors to the exhibition will be able to get hands on with LEGO bricks and put their own creativity into action. During that the display is being held at the Dockyard, different build activities will be running to engage families.

Brick History will run at The Historic Dockyard from today until September 16.
