You know what they say: "The family that builds together is fulfilled together". Ok, they don't say that. But regardless, here's an opportunity to do an awesome family project over the summer!

Our temporary exhibition, Brickman Awesome: Epic LEGO® Creations has some fantastic models, including some inspired by our Australian cousins, like the Sydney Opera House and even a koala. 

Your family challenge is to make your own amazing creation that reflects the spirit of Aotearoa – be inspired by nature or something made by human hands, it’s up to you. Turn on your imagination and build us a masterpiece.

Simply create your New Zealand-inspired model at home, take a photo, and upload it onto our special competition page. We'll pick eight finalists on 1 February who'll be invited to display their handiwork in the Museum. 

Winners will be chosen on 21 February. There will be one overall winner, one runner-up and an audience-favourite (visitors can vote for their favourite onsite). Entries will be judged by a panel of Museum AFOLs (Adult Fans of Lego). The judges will be looking for creativity, detail and consistency with the theme.

1st prize will be $300, 2nd prize $200, and an audience-favourite will receive $100. All other finalists will receive a family pass to Brickman Awesome: Epic LEGO® Creations

Please note: The three winners will stay on display for the duration of the Brickman Awesome: Epic LEGO® Creations exhibition. All finalists and winners must be available to drop their creations into the Museum, leave them under our care, and pick them up again when notified.
