Brick History: Life Science Centre
Brick History is a journey into over 50 of the most pivotal moments in world history – recreated in LEGO® bricks.
No one demonstrates the power and versatility of LEGO® better than master modeler Warren Elsmore. Using LEGO® bricks, Warren and his team recreate stunning historic scenes, from the beginning of life in the pre-historic era right through to the inauguration of Barack Obama.
