Towers of Tomorrow: Extended due to popular demand
We've been delighted to welcome over 20,000 of you to the Museum of Sydney since we opened in December.
Visitors of all ages have marvelled at the stunning LEGO replicas of some of Australia’s and Asia’s most impressive skyscrapers created by LEGO® certified professional Ryan McNaught, while also enjoying the opportunity to create their own towering LEGO masterpieces. We've loved seeing your images on social media and, with a chance to win a fantastic hands-on workshop with Ryan McNaught, we look forward to many more to come! Simply snap and share your photos on social media with #SLMtowers for the chance to win.
The exhibition features skyscrapers constructed from LEGO bricks with breathtaking architectural detail and accuracy. From the Tokyo Skytree and Kuala Lumpur’s twin Petronas Towers to Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands, along with Eureka Tower (Melbourne), Q1 (Gold Coast), iconic Sydney Tower and the ‘still under construction’ buildings of the Barangaroo South complex.
“I am thrilled with the response to this exhibition. Creating two to three-metre high versions of these iconic buildings was an incredible challenge. It’s immensely gratifying that so many young visitors have been inspired to create their own superb LEGO towers,” said Ryan McNaught.
