From the watery depths! Discover these stories of extraordinary shipwrecks, revealed in incredible LEGO® model detail.

Ryan “The Brickman” McNaught, working with expert maritime archaeologists, brings to life these astonishing shipwrecks and their stories in this immersive exhibition.

Featuring large-scale LEGO® models of ships such as Western Australia’s famous Batavia, the “unsinkable” Titanic, the highly decorated Vasa and the ill-fated Terror and Erebus. Come and uncover the stories of the voyages, life aboard the ships, their watery demise and the shipwreck detectives who locate and document the wrecks.

This new exhibition is developed and designed by the Western Australian Museum in partnership with the Australian National Maritime Museum and Ryan “The Brickman” McNaught. Ryan is the only LEGO® certified professional in the Southern Hemisphere, and one of only 14 in the world.
