Brick Dinos

Brick Dinos is a new exhibition for 2018 of dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures built of LEGO® bricks, designed by Warren Elsmore and his team. From tiny insects to a raptor-like masiakasaurus that’s four metres long, Brick Dinos has been built in consultation with a leading palaeontologist to ensure that all models are as accurate as possible based on current knowledge.
