LEGO Acropolis

Following on from the extraordinary success of the LEGO Colosseum in 2012, the Brickman, Ryan McNaught, has turned his hand to one of the most iconic architectural monuments of Ancient Greece – the Acropolis!

The LEGO model displays the Acropolis both as it was in the fifth century BC and as it is today, as one of Greece's most popular tourist attractions. Captured in LEGO are some of the Acropolis' more famous visitors including Pericles, Lord Elgin, Dame Agatha Christie, and even Elton John.

Also on display is the museum's 19th century plaster model of the Acropolis, which captured the building as it stood in 1895.
