Awesome Exhibition – The Interactive Exhibition of LEGO® Models

This award-winning interactive exhibition, a selfie paradise for LEGO® lovers of all ages, was created by LEGO® Certified Professional Ryan “The Brickman” McNaught. It features 38 large-scale LEGO® creations including the perfect-for-the-Pacific Northwest centerpiece: an 8-foot-tall, 660 pound Orca.

Additional creations include the world’s first life-sized LEGO® brick Harley-Davidson, the largest ever LEGO® brick Caterpillar dump truck, and a 24.5-foot-tall NASA SLS rocket built from more than 450,000 bricks. In all, the entire exhibition took more than 5,000 hours to create with nearly 1 million LEGO® bricks.
