"Everything is awesome! Everything is cool, when you're part of a team. Everything is awesome when you're living out a dream."
What little kid hasn’t dreamed of building Lego structures that reach the ceiling? Or cars big enough to fit in? At the Brickman Awesome Lego Exhibition, kids will be able to see their brick building dreams become reality! Lego Certified Professional, Ryan McNaught a.k.a. the “Brickman”, and his team of master brick artists have been working hard to transform the space near the movie theatre at Opry Mills Mall in Nashville into an interactive work of art.
These builds are much larger than I anticipated and full of so much personality thanks to the addition of hundreds of unique minifigs placed in fun scenes throughout the exhibit. The largest of the builds, the space needle and the NASA rocket, can actually be seen right inside of Opry Mills Mall! The space needle is located near the Aquarium Restaurant.
While there is plenty to look at while at the exhibit, we all know that kids want to TOUCH and PLAY! Thankfully, they have several options for putting your build skills to the test. A giant dump truck, the world’s first life-sized Harley Davidson motorcycle, and an adorable penguin scene are just a few of the displays surrounded by a bin of Legos for your kids to build with.
In addition, there are several minifigs that are sporting patriotic tank tops located on each display throughout the exhibit. Some of them are found easily, while others might take a bit more searching. This is a great way to keep younger kids interested in the displays that aren’t hands-on.
There’s also an entire wall dedicated to the “snake” mural! Take a white tile and use the bins of colorful single bricks to make your own masterpiece to add to the wall. If you’re a creative person, you could spend a LOT of time here!

Things to Know Before You Go:
The entire experience took our family a little over an hour, although I’m sure those with younger children might find their kids wanting to stay and build with Legos for longer than my pre-teens did.
This event is wheelchair and stroller accessible.
There is no outside food or drink allowed (except for water), so definitely make sure little ones are fed before you go.
