A beautiful three-metre LEGO® model of the National Museum of Scotland is now on display.

Please note the LEGO® Museum will be off display from Tue 15 – Mon 28 August, as it is moving to the National Museum of Flight for our Awesome Bricks weekend on Sat 26 – Sun 27 August. 

Renowned brick artist Warren Elsmore and his team took over 350 hours and almost 90,000 bricks to build this exquisite model of the museum.

Using scale-plans and elevation drawings, the miniature model depicts gallery details and a number of exhibition objects with thousands of tiny bricks. Every single brick used is a standard LEGO® brick, although rare bricks and parts were sought from all over Europe to complete this unique build.
