LEGO® Hero activities (variety of dates, see website for details)

Creative LEGO® building, LEGO® graffiti wall, Duplo and soft bricks for younger visitors. LEGO® Heroes and students from the NMiTE university team will be on hand to help.

LEGO®: Brick History will be at Hereford Museum & Art Gallery until Saturday 18 May 2019 and is guaranteed to delight families and LEGO® fans of all ages as they relive key moments in history through inspirational models. From DNA and the Big Bang to Martin Luther King and mobile phones, Warren Elsmore and his team have created a celebration of our shared stories, struggles, and triumphs, made from everyone’s favourite Danish toy.

As part of the main exhibition, an interactive zone features a LEGO® graffiti wall, soft bricks, and inspirational brick building and modelling activities for all ages. Children can take the ‘Minifigure Challenge’ in the museum’s historic displays and every completed challenge will win a free child entry ticket to the Black & White House Museum. As an addition to the main exhibition, the museum is showcasing the talents of LEGO® fans across the county, who submitted amazing models for display, some even with a Herefordshire theme.

And if that isn’t enough fun, Hereford BID has created the Hereford City LEGO® trail with models made by schools and individuals across the county. Families are challenged to find all the LEGO® models in shops around High Town and take a selfie. Each completed trail will be entered into a prize draw at the museum to win one of three amazing LEGO® sets (kindly donated by Hereford Model Centre, Philip Morris and Son and The Entertainer).

Adults £3.50 / Children £2 / Family £8.50: Due to high demand, Friday evening, Saturday and Easter holiday tickets are only valid for the specific session booked. Tickets for all other times are valid all day.

Tickets can be bought in advance from The Courtyard Box Office or from the LEGO®: Brick History website: www.herefordshire.gov.uk/legobrickhistory
