Man rebuilds the ancient city of Pompeii with 190,000 LEGO bricks!
The Nicholson Museum is part of Sydney University, which places a central focus on the study of ancient cultures . Innovative exhibits like this help the students connect with the past and better understand daily life in ancient times. “The use of a popular medium such as LEGO enabled the museum to present the ancient world in a way that captures new audiences who may not necessarily be museum-goers and ensure that fun is a central component of the museum visit,”said Craig Barker, education manager at Sydney University Museums.
