Ever since Steven Spielberg first introduced the world to the beloved Jurassic Park series in 1993, the staggering CGI and captivating storytelling (and Jeff Goldblum) have wowed audiences time and time again… and now fans are set to be wowed once more with a brand new Jurassic World exhibition heading to Melbourne.
Ryan ‘The Brickman’ McNaught – AKA the only Australian Lego certified “professional” unveiled an epic, world-first exhibition at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) in April that transforms Jurassic World – the blockbuster franchise from Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment – into an immersive must-do adventure that will be the largest LEGO® experience in Australian history.
The key takeaways

- Fans will discover large-scale LEGO® brick dinosaurs, props, scenes and activities inspired by the blockbuster Jurassic World franchise.
- It’s the biggest ever LEGO® brick exhibition at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre
Opening in April, the season was due to end at the end of May. However, due to popular demand the season has been extended another four months. The season will now run until Sunday, October 3.
Here, you’ll be able to immerse yourself in stories and characters from the Jurassic World franchise with over 50 large-scale dinosaurs, props, scenes and activities made from over 6 million LEGO® bricks. From the iconic four-metre-tall gates, and Isla Nublar, to the science labs of the Park and the petting zoo, fans of the franchise – and/or Lego – will be well and truly in their element. You’ll even be able to venture to the baby dinosaur enclosure, where a life-size LEGO® brick Brachiosaurus awaits that weighs well over two tons!
You’ll also come across Velociraptors Blue and Delta and, of course, an enormous T.rex – a favourite of many Jurassic World fans.
The hands-on exhibition also has a myriad of activities, from island-building, LEGO® paleontology and discovery through mystery mosaics, hybrid dinosaur creation, learning to track a dinosaur by creating species footprints, and even building escape vehicles to get away from a T.rex.
As a native Victorian, Ryan ‘The Brickman’ McNaught is thrilled to be hosting the world premiere at MCEC, before taking the exhibition around the country and the world.
“This experience brings two of the most iconic and well-recognised brands together – LEGO® and Jurassic World,” says McNaught.
“The team and I have worked on this for the last two years, with these being some of the most complex and challenging models we have ever made. They’ve demanded new techniques, thousands of hours building and experimenting to create designs that we’re incredibly proud of and are a true representation of the Jurassic World franchise.”
Jurassic World by Brickman® will run until October 3 2021 at MCEC. Tickets on sale now here.
