BRICK CITY FAQs
Where will the exhibition be held?
The exhibition is being held in our temporary exhibition galleries on the first floor in the main historic house.
How do I get a ticket?
Tickets will be available for sale on the day of your visit from the main house reception. The exhibition is included in your admission ticket to the historic house.
Can I buy tickets in advance?
No, you can purchase your admission ticket on your chosen day to visit.
Are there a maximum number of visitors at any one time?
Yes, due to health and safety we will need to restrict the numbers in the exhibition at busy times. We will manage this as best we can, but it is inevitable that there will be times busier than others such as weekends. In the event that you do have to wait to access the exhibition, we will keep you as informed as possible and up to date of waiting times when you arrive. You can visit the rest of the historic house and our other exhibitions as part of your experience whilst you are waiting.
How long will I need?
We would imagine that approx. 30 minutes – 1 hour would be sufficient in the exhibition space. This will of course vary depending on the visitor, age group, and your interaction with the exhibition. If you have children please ask at reception for a family activity sheet which will add to the fun.
What time is the exhibition open?
It will be open:
10 – 5pm Monday – Sunday
Last admission will be 30 minutes before the closing time.
Can I re-enter the exhibition?
Yes, whilst you are in the historic house you can visit the exhibition as many times as you like. If you have purchased a Friends membership then you can come back as many times as you like within the year of your membership.
What will I see?
Brick City is an exhibition of well known miniature models from around the world made in LEGO® bricks. Each model will have an interesting fact panel.
There will also be interactives in the exhibition for you to build your own creations out of Lego® bricks. There will be Duplo® bricks designed for younger children to play with, and Lego® bricks for older children and adults.
There will also be a family activity sheet for you to complete as you move around the exhibition.
Is there wheelchair and buggy access?
Yes. The exhibition is on the first floor which is accessible via a lift. Please ask a member of staff if you require the lift.
Will I be able to take photographs whilst in the exhibition?
Of course – it’s all part of the fun. Please share these on our Facebook and Twitter pages, we would love to see them. As part of our child protection policy please ensure pictures are only of your children in your group, and do not have other peoples children in them.
What age is the exhibition suitable for?
The exhibition is suitable for all ages. Please remain with your children at all times because there are small bricks in the interactives and these could be a choking hazard to young children. The Duplo® bricks are larger and designed for the younger children to play with.
All children must be accompanied by an adult.
Can I bring a drink or snack into the exhibition?
Unfortunately not, no food or drink is allowed in the historic house.
