Brick Wonders set for the stunning new Gateway Visitor Centre, Antrim

Brick Wonders, an internationally acclaimed exhibition, featuring recreations in LEGO® bricks of amazing sights from around the world, is coming to the new Gateway Visitor Centre, on the banks of Lough Shore Antrim, from Saturday 7 March until Sunday 14 June.
 

Curated by artist Warren Elsmore this unique exhibition begins with the seven wonders of the ancient world, also taking in modern, natural and historic wonders from all seven continents. Brick Wonders will take you on a journey from an Egyptian pyramid to the natural pyramid of the Matterhorn, the bustle of Old London Bridge to the awesome natural display of the Aurora Australis and those everyday marvels we forget to wonder at, such as electricity and the Internet.

At the heart of the Brick Wonders display is the giant Great Barrier Reef attraction, complete with underwater lighting and sound effects. This centrepiece has LEGO recreations of everything from corals and sponges to turtles and reef-dwelling fish such as blue tangs, angel fish and a ray.

In all, over sixty LEGO models are included, from tiny models to inspire building at home, to large mosaics and dioramas using a grand total of half a million LEGO bricks.

LEGO bricks are unique in their appeal, having been a top-selling toy for over fifty years.  This exhibition will appeal to all ages, so if you love LEGO you will love Brick Wonders! This exhibition has visited art galleries, museums and exhibition centres from Italy to England and is returning to Northern Ireland for the first time since 2015.
