Ever dreamed of visiting the Empire State Building, Arc De Triomphe, Big Ben and other world-famous landmarks?

Thanks to Ryan ‘The Brickman’ McNaught, South Islanders can explore a world of epic LEGO brick masterpieces and learn about some of mankind’s most amazing achievements from all over the globe in the fully interactive, educational experience that is Brickman ‘Wonders of the World’.

Opening at the Air Force Museum of New Zealand, in Wigram, Christchurch, on Saturday 15 December 2018 and running until Sunday 20 January 2019, the exhibition boasts 50 awe-inspiring models on display that were built with more than seven tonnes of LEGO bricks.

This exceptionally popular exhibition being toured by Brickman Exhibitions and Te Papa, the national museum of New Zealand, comes direct to Christchurch following hugely successful stints in Wellington, Hamilton, Tauranga and Auckland, where more than 200,000 LEGO brick lovers have already visited Brickman ‘Wonders of the World’.

“It’s been incredible to witness such a phenomenal turnout of New Zealand kids and adults that love LEGO as much as I do,” says Brickman creator Ryan McNaught. “I can’t wait to bring the party to Christchurch, it’s going to be awesome.”

Visitors will be taken on a hands-on, educational journey through history, coming face-to-face with giant LEGO brick versions of world famous landmarks that include a huge Arc de Triomphe, the Empire State Building with King Kong, Big Ben, and even the Leaning Tower of Pisa!

“This exhibition is a collection of my most ambitious works,” said Ryan McNaught. “Every model is brand new and infinitely more detailed than anything I’ve ever created.”

Melbourne born and raised, McNaught is the only LEGO Certified Professional in the Southern Hemisphere and one of only 14 in the world. Incredibly, ‘Wonders of the World’ took him and his expert Brickman team a jaw-dropping 4,944 hours to build.

Throughout the exhibition, visitors will have the opportunity to learn along the way and discover more about each attraction – real life and LEGO life. As well as being immersed amongst the incredible LEGO brick creations, there will be a number of hands-on activities to take part in.

Ryan will also be enlisting the building skills of the public to help with some of the model making, with little and big kids (LEGO code for adults!) having the chance to show off their building talents in the master builder zones, creating a truly interactive and imaginative experience.

“Brickies will have the chance to build a statue of themselves next to the mighty Statue of David and they can also help me build some creations to go around the Coral Reef. Hopefully all the budding builders in the South Island are up for the challenge,” added Ryan.
