Can't fit in a daytime visit to see the dinosaur franchise's creatures recreated with six million-plus Lego bricks? Head by after hours.

Overview

Ben Stiller won't be there. None of the exhibits will come to life. But you can still spend a night at the museum at Brisbane's own Queensland Museum in 2024. The South Brisbane venue is currently hosting the Jurassic World by Brickman exhibition, which it knows is popular — so it is staying open late on a heap of dates, largely clustered around weekends.

While you won't be sleeping over, you will be able to enter the dinosaur-themed Lego showcase between 5–6.20pm on the relevant days. In January, that includes Friday, January 19–Saturday, January 20. In February, mark Friday, February 2–Saturday, February 3, then Friday, February 23–Saturday, February 24 in your diary. There's also a Valentine's Day session on Wednesday, February 14.

March's dates are Friday, March 1–Saturday, March 2 — and April's are Friday, April 5–Saturday, April 6, then Saturday, April 13.

From there, options include Friday, May 3–Saturday, May 4, Friday, June 7–Saturday, June 8, Friday, June 28– Saturday, June 29, Friday, July 5–Saturday, July 6 and Saturday, July 13.

Although you'll be able to see what happens when more than 50 dinosaurs, props and scenes from the Jurassic World movies are fashioned out of the popular plastic bricks — more than six million of them, in fact, making the four-metre-tall park gates, the lab where the dinosaurs are genetically engineered, those instantly recognisable jeeps and more — everywhere else at Queensland Museum South Bank will shut at the normal time of 5pm.

If it all sounds rather sizeable, that's because Jurassic World by Brickman is the largest Lego exhibition in Australia. It also lets Lego aficionados get building while they're there, with 2.5 million bricks to play with.
