Brickman Wonders of the World at Te Papa Museum

Brickman Wonders of the World exhibit is on display at Te Papa from 09 Dec to 11 Feb. If you have kids or if you’re a Lego fun, you must visit! While entry to Te Papa is free, there is a fee to see the exhibit. It’s a bit hefty at $19.50 for adults and $9.50 for children (aged 3-15 years). There’s a concession rate for senior and students at $15.50 (must present an valid ID) and a family rate of $49.50. If you’re going to ask if it’s worth it, the answer is a resounding YES!

There’s a line to purchase tickets at Te Papa, so you might want to grab yours off the website before heading there. All ages are welcome, but children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult — this is important as the actual pieces must not be touched. There are interactive areas for kids so it’s all good.
