Visitors will also be able to see tiny recreations of Concorde and Titanic, examinations of art from cave paintings to 1960s pop art and Lego versions of the Viking invasions and the struggles of slaves and suffragettes.

Brick History has been brought to the centre by Hull City Council with support from the University of Hull, and it is expected to attract over 10,000 visitors during its two-month run.

University archivist Simon Wilson said: “This will be the first time Brick History has been exhibited in the Humber region. Securing the funding will allow us to offer the exhibition six days a week from Monday through to Saturday for the entire two months”

Councillor Marjorie Brabazon, Chair of Hull Culture and Leisure Ltd, said “The History Centre has run its Lego and craft History Makers monthly events for a few years. Brick History builds on this and will be a great way of bringing history to life for children of all ages.”

The exhibition will open at the Hull History Centre on January 12 and will run to March 9.

Best of all it is FREE to attend!
