Brick Dinos LEGO® Experience

Life Science

Life Science Centre in Newcastle reopens after the coronavirus lockdown with a mega Dino Experience exhibition which includes plenty of LEGO® brick fun! The perfect day out for all the family in Newcastle. Life Science Centre is Good To Go!

The Dino Experience exhibition is open during weekends only from Saturday 12 September.

Tickets need to be pre-booked. Time slots will be released for new dates every Friday. Slots can be booked up to midnight the day before you’d like to visit. Tickets are nonrefundable and non-transferable.

  • Visitors MUST pre-book tickets and select a time slot (1hour 45minutes).
  • Face coverings are compulsory for all visitors. If you do not have your own, you can buy one from us on arrival.
  • For full details about what to know before you go, how to stay safe while visiting Life Science Centre and what to expect from your visit, read Life Science's Covid Statement.
  • Each visitor will be given a LEGO® pack on arrival – head to a freshly cleaned table and challenge family members on who can build the best dinosaur using just six bricks.

Visitors will be tasked to build a dinosaur using only six bricks. (Each visitor will be given their own unused pouch of LEGO® bricks for the challenge.) Explore a wall of LEGO® brick models built by local professional LEGO® artist Steve Mayes to inspire you with the endless possibilities for what to build at home.

Then it’s onto the new exhibition Brick Dinos. Artist Warren Elsmore and his team worked with a palaeontologist to carefully recreate some of the largest beasts to ever walk the Earth in miniature LEGO® brick form.

Most models are dinosaur dioramas in glass cases. The stars of the exhibition, though, are the 4-metre-long masiakasaurus and the pterosaur (commonly known as a pterodactyl) hovering overhead, with an impressive 2.4-metre wingspan.

Visitors will notice some changes that have been introduced for safety during the pandemic. For instance, everyone has to wear a face covering, including Life's staff. There will be a clear one-way route and everything is spaced out so that visitors can keep socially distanced from other families.
