The Hull History Centre is hosting a free exhibition which tells the story of some of the biggest moments in history…made completely out of LEGO! But its only on until 9th March 2019 so you’ll have to big quick to catch it.
It’s an incredible exhibition by artist Warren Elsmore who has capture scenes such as the destruction of Pompeii, the suffragette movement, the moon landing and my personal favourite, a build of the first “talkie”.But this isn’t just an exhibition with LEGO sculptures behind glass cases. The Hull History Centre have made the exhibition really accessible for the full family, especially little ones. There are lots of boxes of LEGO and mats to get creative with. We could have spent all day there!
What’s For Kids
Obviously some of the LEGO sculptures were more interesting for toddler than others. The dinosaur one really captured James’ imagination.
For the even younger ones who might be prone to simply eating the LEGO (!), there are much bigger bricks to build with. There’s also a reading book corner and a wooden castle to play in.
Food & Drinks
When it comes to snack time, there’s a kiosk and seating for drinks and light bites to keep you covered.You can save even more money by taking your own reusable cup to get a hot drink for only £1.
February 2019 sees the sequel to the LEGOMovie released so there are props for fab photo opportunities too.There were also lots of LEGO colouring sheets and pencil crayons to help yourself to.
As always, I report on baby changing facilities and I have to say I’m impressed. Little things like the door opens outwards so you can actually get a pram in there if you have one. Also the change table is metal so nice and hygienic. There wasn’t a loo in the actual room but the disabled toilets were large enough to get a pram in if you’re visiting alone with kids.

If you want to learn more or buy a gift for another LEGO lover (or treat yourself), there’s a range of books about LEGO available to purchase in the Hull History Centre.
