Milestones Bricks in MotionDear mummy, it’s blowing a gale outside today so we opt for an indoor activity. We head to Milestones Museum where we are sheltered from the elements. It’s our third time here and our second time enjoying an official LEGO Event. Last year we visited Lego Lost World, today we’re here to see Bricks in Motion.

Name the characters…

Bricks in Motion is an exhibition that depicts the history of transport in tiny LEGO bricks. The event is on over Easter until the 26th April 2015 at Milestones Museum, Basingstoke, Hampshire.

It’s on our Top Ten Things to do over Easter List.

It’s open Tue-Fri 10am – 4.45pm and Sat-Sun 11am – 4.45pm.

It’s been organised by Hampshire Cultural Trust.

Milestones Bricks in MotionToday we explored an impressive variety of tiny scaled forms of transport made all from LEGO. We saw The Queen Mary, StarWars models, modes of transport from films, such as the Batmobile from ‘Batman’ and the Delorean from ‘Back to the Future’. Steam engines and tall ships, to horse-drawn carriages and double-decker buses.

Milestones Bricks in MotionSome of the most iconic forms of transport have been created in miniature forms from LEGO. It was fascinating. We loved the New York taxi and the pink cadillac.

We got fully involved on our trip to Bricks in Motion too as my mummy helped to build a mega space rocket and watched the certified LEGO builder from Bright Bricks in action. We all had a go on the LEGO play tables, and even though I’m only two I got to enjoy playing with the larger DUPLO bricks.

I can’t wait till I’m old enough to play with the ‘real’ LEGO, my daddy is dying to get me to build a Millennium Falcon for him!

We also briefly looked around the Living History Museum and took a trip to the  Penny Arcades as well. Milestones has so much on offer (read our last review here) Today was all about the #BricksinMotion. It was busy today at Milestones with some group parties booked onto the LEGO ‘masterclasses’ this is evident by the large queues at the old-fashioned sweet store. Well, you need sugar to create all those LEGO sculptures!!

Me crashing after having too much sugar!!!

A great way to spend a couple of hours on a rainy day. We had fun! Can’t wait to see what the next Milestone’s event holds.
