  • A new exhibition in Malaga includes 100 models spread over 12 zones with a fun play area

  • The show, which will be open until 22 September, includes an 11-metre-long Titanic replica and a figure of the world's tallest man

At the biggest Lego exhibition in Europe anything is possible. The show opened last Sunday at its new home in Malaga's Muelle Uno marina area and saw long queues of visitors waiting to see the models for themselves.

Children's faces lit up as they walked with their families into the exhibition, which is divided into 12 zones covering 1,100 square metres. The more than 100 models have been made from five million Lego pieces.

Inside visitors can find everything from an 11-metre-long Titanic replica made up of more than 500,000 Lego pieces, to a real-life figure of Robert Pershing Wadlow, the tallest man in the world who died in 1940 at only 22 years old.

These huge constructions built with tiny pieces will remain in Malaga until 22 September. Inside, there is something for everyone, and not just for children.

Winter landscapes, Leonardo Da Vinci's flying machine that can be operated manually, a Quidditch pitch from the Harry Potter films, the human body (digestive system, heart and brain) are all among the exhibits.

From one world to another

As visitors move from zone to zone they will find themselves in the world of J.R.R. Tolkien and the Lord of the Rings trilogy as well as the Wild West, complete with mine, jail and saloon.

There is also the chance to travel the world, passing by the Statue of Liberty and the Sydney Opera House. The interactive map of Europe shows you which countries belong to NATO, the EU or the G6, at the push of a button.

Football fans will enjoy the replicas of Camp Nou in Barcelona or Santiago Bernabéu in Madrid, while film aficionados can admire the Star Destroyer spaceship from Star Wars made with 60,000 lego pieces, or Thor and Captain America built with 80,000 and 75,000 pieces respectively.

And the show does not end there: visitors have the chance to let their imaginations run wild and build a figure for themselves in the Fun Park after their walk through the showcase.

The exhibition can be visited every day from 11am to 9pm.

3D fun

The company behind the Lego exhibition also invites guests to visit the 3D Trick Gallery, a fun show at the same location which allows you to interact with 3D images. Visitors can take photos with penguins, defend their homes from dinosaurs or be on the front cover of a famous magazine.
