Brick week at the British Motor Museum

Published 16 January 2017

Visitors to the British Motor Museum will get the chance to help build a life-size classic Mini out of Lego bricks this February half-term. Enthusiasts taking part in the challenge will be able to complete their own Lego brick section (four bricks by four bricks), which they will then hand over to professional model builders to assemble into the brick-built Mini.

Other activities on offer include a Lego Minifigure trail around the museum. There will also be the ‘25-brick challenge’ – a chance to make your own British car with just 25 bricks and four wheels. For those aged under five, there is the chance to have fun with foam bricks.

Emma Rawlinson, family learning officer at the British Motor Museum, said, ‘We’re very excited about ‘brick week’. The opportunity to build a life size Mini out of Lego bricks is a unique opportunity for visitors. We hope to record it all on time lapse camera, so that we can look back over the nine days to see how the Mini coming together.’

All half-term family activities are included in museum entry. Fees are: adults £14, children £9 (5-16 years) under five’s free, concessions £12 and family £39 (two adults and up to three children).
