Lego and Steam Trains – what could be better?

Lego and Steam Trains – what could be better?

The Great Western Brick Show showcases amazing LEGO models built by LEGO fans in the UK. The show is held at STEAM, the museum of the Great Western Railway in Swindon from 4th – 5th October 2014. The show will display a wide range of models of all sizes including buildings, space craft, cars, trucks, aircraft and much more.

There will be the opportunity to join in an interactive building challenge to create a giant LEGO mosaic from 100,000 bricks! Building workshops will give visitors the chance to learn building techniques and catch up on all the latest LEGO news. As well as lego play tables for children there are also sofas for adults (if you can tear them away from the lego!) Of course, while visiting the Brick Show you can enjoy all the other exhibits that the STEAM museum has to offer. It promises to be a great family day out.

STEAM: Museum of the Great Western Railway, Swindon is a great location for a family day out. STEAM is located in the heart of what was once one of the largest railway engineering complexes in the world and tells the remarkable story of the men and women who built, operated and travelled on the Great Western Railway. At its peak in the 1930's it was producing 3 locomotives each week!

The museum offers a great hands on experience for children, from operating a signal box to controlling the model railway.
