DISCOVER more about the Tudor era as history is brought to life through Lego at Salisbury Museum.

Around the museum there will be eight brick models - the centrepiece being a large display of Hever Castle in Kent, which was home to the Boleyn family from 1462 to 1539.

The model is made of 40,500 bricks and took 160 hours to make.

Other exhibits include a Tudor street scene, Shakespeare’s Globe, Henry VIII’s six wives, a life size jousting helmet, a 60cm tall sculpture of Henry VIII based on the famous painting by Holbein and other iconic Tudor items.

Each display has been carefully researched and created in 3D. The collection of models are on loan from Salisbury-based Brick Galleria who are a professional Lego brick model building company.

Brick Galleria director, Kevin Hall, said: “Brick Galleria has kindly lent the models to the museum to encourage people back into this wonderful and historic museum. We hope the models will captivate everyone’s love of history like it does for me and inspire the future creatives and historians of the future.”

Museum director Adrian Green added: “We are hugely grateful to Brick Galleria for lending these models to the museum this autumn. I am passionate about Tudor history and I think these models are absolutely fantastic – I urge people to come along and see them.”

Kevin Hall will be at the museum on October 29 to talk about the Tudor models and sign copies of publications he has worked on.
