The Lego Colesseum


The Colosseum

The largest ever LEGO model of Rome's famous Colosseum is now on exhibition at the Nicholson Museum. A quarter of a million bricks were used in construction put together by 10,000 slaves working for architect and LEGO Certified Professional Ryan 'Vitruvius' McNaught.

The model is the centrepiece of an exhibition about Rome's largest surviving building from the great days of its Empire. The exhibition will also include sculpture and coins of the Emperors, as well as artefacts used in daily life by the ordinary Roman who enjoyed 100 days of holiday and games when the original Colosseum opened in 80 AD.
