Families and curious children of all ages from across Sydney and beyond have provided rave reviews of the Jurassic World by Brickman® exhibition at the Australian Museum since it opened in early March 2022.

“It was the bestest thing I’ve ever seen and I’ve seen Jurassic World five times, so I know good things!” Elliott, a four-year-old from Kellyville Ridge, said.

“The Brickman guy is a genius for making those LEGO® brick sculptures. The T-Rex and Jeep are the coolest things I’ve ever seen. I’ve told everyone at my school they need to go!” Lewis, an eight-year-old from Kellyville Ridge, said.
