In February, Legonium episode 7, Claudia will be visiting Pompeii. This has been made possible by the incredible Lego Pompeii that forms part of the collection of the Nicholson Museum. Sydney University’s Nicholson Museum has a proud (if recent) tradition of displaying historical Lego models. In 2012 they displayed a wonderful Lego Colosseum, and in 2014 the Athenian Acropolis. Both were built by LEGO Professional Builder Ryan McNaught. Both brought in a huge number of visitors who otherwise may not have visited the museum. The latest model is their most ambitious by far; Pompeii. In Legonium episode 7 Claudia will visit Lego Pompeii. Here is a little about the model from the Nicholson Museum’s website.
LEGO Pompeii, one of the largest LEGO historical models ever built, is on display in the Nicholson Museum, constructed by LEGO Professional Builder Ryan McNaught aka The Brickman. The model includes Pompeii as it was at the moment of destruction in 79AD, as it was when rediscovered in the 1700s, and as it is today.
