Information for your visit

Set in a future long after humanity’s reign, RELICS tells the story of a world where LEGO® minifigures have risen from the debris to craft intricate civilisations in discarded human artefacts, each one inspired by the object they now call home.

A marauding band of inventors have reverse-engineered a grandfather clock to build a time machine.

Nestled inside a vintage refrigerator, a cryogenics facility preserves its subjects from the ravages of an overheated climate.

In a retro arcade, airlocks and elevators connect a series of gaming machines to form a futuristic space port.

These are just a few of the 15 detail-packed worlds in RELICS: A New World Rises.

RELICS: a New World Rises offers a playful and nostalgic journey of discovery that combines the old and the new to present stories of humanity that will appeal to all ages.

The brainchild of Jackson Harvey and Alex Towler, 2020 winners of Channel 9’s LEGO® Masters, this first of its kind interactive and inspirational exhibition is not to be missed.
