Brick History

Brick History takes famous moments from history and imagines them in LEGO® bricks.

How many will you recognise?  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.

From tiny recreations of Concorde and the Titanic that could fit in your hand, to a 1.5m square medieval castle bustling with activity, there are models to make you smile, to make you think, and to inspire you to build a better world.

Discover historic moments a little closer to home with an interactive timeline of Carlisle’s history. See objects from the Tullie House collection, new LEGO® models created by members of the public and take the opportunity to create and add your own builds.

Learn how YOU can compete to have your own models displayed in this fabulous exhibition.
