The Nicholson Museum's Lego Pompeii goes on display on Saturday 10 January 2015, admission will be free

The model, one of the largest ever built, is being made for the Nicholson Musem by LEGO Professional Builder Ryan McNaught aka The Brickman. The model will include Pompeii as it was at the moment of destruction in 79AD, as it was when rediscovered in the 1700s, and as it is today.

As with our LEGO Colosseum and our LEGO Acropolis it will incoporate fact and fiction, history and pop culture. Be on the look out for...
