Amazing display of historic places and moments made from LEGO®
Brick City, one of the world’s most popular and fun exhibitions using LEGO® bricks, is coming to Titanic Belfast in May.
As LEGO® fever grips the globe with the release of The LEGO® Movie in cinemas, famed independent LEGO® artist Warren Elsmore will bring his breath-taking recreations of major city landmarks and iconic global images to one of the most famous maritime cities in the world, where RMS Titanic was built more than 100 years ago.
Artist Joe Perez recreates the iconic Titanic Belfast building from LEGO? bricks, inside a pod in Belfast’s Victoria Square shopping mall, ahead of the Brick City LEGO exhibition at Titanic Belfast, from May 17 to July 13
The official LEGO artist will be inside the pod until Friday afternoon before the completed Titanic Belfast model is moved to become part of the famous Brick City LEGO exhibition.
After July 13, the model will tour all over the world, sitting alongside other famous landmarks and buildings.

Brick City’s must-see scaled down versions of iconic buildings and landmarks from across the globe, including London’s Olympic Park and Westminster Abbey, as well as icons from cities such as San Francisco, Toyko and New York, will be on show in the modern architectural wonder that is Titanic Belfast, from Saturday, May 17 until Sunday, July 13.
The exhibition also includes a model of London’s famous St Pancras Station, which measures 5ft tall and is 12ft long, and contains no less than 180,000 LEGO® bricks. It even recreates Marilyn Monroe’s famous Seven Year Itch scene that included THAT dress!
The Brick City exhibition at Titanic Belfast will feature 72 architectural scale models, made in LEGO®, all of which appear in Warren’s popular book ‘Brick City’.
For LEGO® enthusiasts of all ages there will be something for everyone at the Brick City exhibition in Titanic Belfast.
Brick City creator Warren Elsmore said: “Whilst too many LEGO Bricks are ‘just a toy’, to an ever-growing army of fans they provide a challenging and enjoyable modeling medium. These fans call themselves AFOLs – Adult Fans of Lego – and have taken it upon themselves to recreate local landmarks using just the bricks that you find at your local toy store.”
This exciting exhibition will open daily from 9am to 7pm with allocated hourly time-slots priced at £5 per adult, £4 per child and £15 per family.
Slots can be booked in advance at Titanic Belfast ticket desks or online at www.titanicbelfast.com
