Seeing dinosaurs at Queensland Museum isn't new, but they aren't usually made out of Lego. From Friday, December 8, 2023–Sunday, July 14, 2024, however, the South Brisbane venue is saying welcome to... Jurassic World by Brickman, which gets building with plastic bricks based on the Jurassic World movies.

Can't wait to see how more than six million Lego blocks have been used to create the four-metre-tall park gates, the lab where the dinosaurs are genetically engineered, those instantly recognisable jeeps, a heap of creatures and more? Life has found a way to get you a sneak peek the night before the exhibition opens. On Thursday, December 7, QM is hosting an exclusive preview that'll have you pretending you're in the movies from 5.15–8.30pm.

At this night at the museum — a night at the largest Lego exhibition in Australia as well — Lego and Jurassic World aficionados will meet Ryan 'Brickman' McNaught, aka the man behind the showcase. You'll also get insider knowledge from him at a Q&A.

Attendance also includes a signed copy of the exhibition guide and a branded tote bag, but it doesn't come cheap, costing $189 per person.

There'll be drinks and bites to eat as well, which you'll need to purchase on top — and you can't take them with you while you're scoping out Lego dinosaurs.
