Explore the world brick by brick!

Famous landmarks like the Empire State Building, Arc De Triomphe and Taj Mahal are just a few of the incredible LEGO® masterpieces which will be on display this summer at the Air Force Museum of New Zealand.

Ryan ‘The Brickman’ McNaught brings his Brickman  ‘Wonders of the World’ exhibition to Christchurch, featuring 50 awe-inspiring models built with more than seven tonnes of LEGO® bricks.

Visitors will get the chance to take a hands-on, educational journey while exploring the ‘Wonders of the World’.

Ryan says that ‘every model is brand new and infinitely more detailed than anything I have ever created.’ Melbourne born and raised, Ryan is the only LEGO® Certified Professional in the Southern Hemisphere and one of only 14 in the world. Ryan will also be enlisting the building skills of the public to help with some of the model making, lending to a truly interactive and imaginative experience.
