There's so much to see & do


LEGO and shipwreck enthusiasts of all ages will love this exhibit, which features a wonderful balance of both real artifacts salvaged from shipwrecks as well as some of the most beautifully detailed LEGO models I have ever seen.

Ryan "The Brickman" McNaught created these models while working tirelessly with a group of expert maritime archaeologists to make sure that the designs looked like miniature versions of the real ships they represent, only completely made in LEGO!

Just one of the Lego building stations

"The Brickman", who has become a household name through his involvement in the highly popular television show Lego Masters Australia, is the only Lego certified professional in the Southern Hemisphere and one of only 14 in the entire world.

A hilarious scene
The models are so impressive and are something you just have to see in person. They include Western Australia's own Batavia, the Titanic, the highly decorated Vasa and the ill-fated Terror and Erebus.
 
For those with enough time, there are loads of interesting facts to read along the way and while you absolutely can not touch the models, there's still a lot of fun interactions to be had, with the use of touch screen, "magic" motion sensors and games. There are also LEGO and DUPLO building stations, where you can have a go at building your own ships, or anything your imagination can conjure up.

While you're visiting, don't forget to check out the gift shop, where there are lots of fun and educational items for sale, including some cool LEGO sets to choose from.
