Brick by Brick: A LEGO® brick history of Exeter

Embark on a time travelling adventure, journeying from the deepest recesses of Devon’s prehistoric past to Exeter’s dreams of a greener future… all lovingly recreated in LEGO® bricks.

Dive into Jurassic seas where menacing ichthyosaurs prowl, relax in a recreated Roman bathhouse, defend the city from the walls of Rougemont Castle, or glimpse inside the newly built St. Sidwell’s Point Leisure Complex.

Each miniaturised LEGO brick model explores a different point in Exeter’s vibrant history, from its origins in the days of the Roman Empire to the glorious heights of its famous woollen trade, and from the tragedy of the Second World War to its transformation into a ‘garden city’ of the near-future.

Filled with fun and humour, and accompanied by objects from RAMM’s collection, children’s playzones, trails and more, this LEGO brick story of our city will delight children of all ages.

Visual stories give you an idea of what to expect and can help you plan a good day out. They are especially suited to people with autism, anxiety and associated conditions. For visual stories of the LEGO® exhibition please click here.
