Watch the magic happen!

Perfect for children, families and LEGO® brick admirers alike, a large-scale LEGO® brick model of State Library Victoria will be built piece-by-piece by the Brickman’s team over a two-week period this summer. 

Be sure to watch the live-action as these practitioners piece together the details of the Library, with half of the model showing the outside of the Library and the other half looking inside at the iconic spaces you know and love. From the intricate details of the Domed Reading Room to the book stacks and the iconic faces you see at the Library; this recreation promises to amaze and inspire its audience. 

The finished model will be on display from Monday 24 January to Sunday 6 February.

Please note: The model will be unavailable to view on Thursday 27 January from 12.30pm to close and will only be available to view on Saturday the 29 January with a free ticket to Face-to-face with the Brickman.
