Plus, you may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the Brickman himself!

Make a night of it and book your tickets to Jurassic World by Brickman®.


Thursday 26 May - Brickman Up Late: Trivia

Do you know your Iguanodons from your Theropods? It’s time to rumble in the jungle and test your knowledge at our after-hours trivia with a Jurassic twist.

Join Breko, the titan of the Sydney trivia scene, as he brings his unique quest for knowledge to the Nights at the Museum bar. With a dino-rama building competition, games, prizes and a cameo from Ryan ‘The Brickman’ McNaught, what better way to spend your Thursday night?

Don’t forget to bring your LEGO® Minifigures to play swapsies at the Minifigure Wall.

Also, back by special demand, be awe-inspired by the incredible LEGO® My Own Creation (MOC) fan-built mini museum by teenage prodigy, Harper Watts.

16-year-old Harper Watts has been a huge fan of the Australian Museum for as long as she can remember. Her love for natural history museums is driven for by an abiding passion for palaeontology, herpetology and ornithology.

As an arts scholarship student at Blue Mountains Grammar, Harper responded to the 2020 Covid lockdown by merging her love for science with her innate creativity. When she wasn’t able to attend the Australian Museum due to the lockdown, Harper created her own.
