The goal of this set is to blend two creative arts together for an enriching, entertaining and educational experience.
Fans of LEGO brick-building will be introduced to the art of magic as they embark on a journey into the colourful world of conjuring & prestidigitation in the “History of Magic Museum”.
The “History of Magic Museum” is a historically accurate magic-themed three-storey building that highlights some of the greatest illusions and magicians in the history of magic.
It is highly detailed with numerous LEGO replicas of authentic magic & illusion props used by illusionists from the past to present day.
There are more than half a dozen play features and removable brick-built illusion displays.
LEGO “History of Magic Museum” created by J C Sum
The size of the build (16 x 16 stud footprint) was deliberately made smaller than a full modular-sized building but was designed to visually fit with other official modular buildings as well as the smaller creator series buildings such as the Corner Deli and Bike Shop & Cafe.
It works as a corner building or a “set-in’ building, in-between two other modular buildings.
The museum when placed beside the “Brick Bank” and the “Corner Deli”. Note that the “Corner Deli” is a modified one but is of similar size to the original.
