    [MOC] Munich's Glyptothek

    I built Munich's Glyptothek (ancient sculpture museum) in Bricklink Studio. Easter eggs include the ability to easily remove the roofs of the side wings to reveal the sculptures within! You can find my other builds on Instagram: @BenBuildsLego
  2. On 27th of august, there is an event called “Brick Wars” in the museum of the 20th century in Hoorn in the Netherlands. It is a small event with a group of 6-7 people exhibiting with models and diorama’s based on Lego Star Wars. The exhibitors can tell you all about the builds and there will be a small stand where you can buy small sets, minifigs and other. In the museum is an exhibition of Star Wars merchandise. It is the 40th anniversary of Star Wars and you can see the merchandise from 1977 to present. You can take place in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon and dress yourself as characters from the movies. There are two rooms with merchandise and there is a corridor with showcases with Lego Star Wars after the permanent exhibition with living rooms from the 20th century. In the corridor is a building competition for the visitors. You can win prizes with this competition. In the museum is a small gift shop with Star Wars merchandise and there is a place where you can get your drinks and/or snacks. It is a small event. If you are in the neighborhood of the museum and you like Star Wars and Lego, feel free to pay a visit. Parking information is on the website of the museum (it is in Dutch). Museum of the 20th century You can also find pictures of the exhibition on the facebook page of the museum.

    Somerset Museum Moc

    This is a museum I made for my town.
  5. Hi everyone! I follow your great creations, posts and comments but haven`t shared much myself until now. I`ve finally "learned" how to post images from a imagehost (dah), then it will be easier to share my own creations here at Eurobricks as well. Feedbacks makes it much more fun to create and share! I`ll start with my newest creation called "Chillville Museum of Art & History", which is a museum, of art & history, in my Lego city aka Chillville. You`ll also find my Legolife on http://instagram.com/chilis_no -I hope you like my grand new museum! It has a new roofdesign made of DBG bananas, grand tinted glass entrance from floor to roof, candelier and a massive staircase of glass. Enjoy! Welcome! The friendly waiter welcomes you with a apertizer on the grand opening day, stirred but not shaken. The owner/artcollector and the curator enjoys the balcony. New use of of bananas in DBG, selfdesigned. Grand entrance, welcome in! 1st floor with cashier desk and art of the old days as well as present days. Selfdesigned staircase in massive glass. Staircase to.... ...the 2nd floor. -More art & history and entrance to the balcony. A closer look at the arts and crafts. The friendly minifigs, cashier - visitor - waiter for the grand opening - owner/artcollector - curator Hope you liked it! It`s not my first MOC and not the last ;)

    [MOC] : Modular Museum

    Hello, after months of building, I can finally present you my latest moc: a modular museum! I've used set 60008 as a base and starting point. Didn' know how it would turn out, because I don't build in LDD first, it was just trial and error! It's for 99% completed. Maybe you can spot the missing brick(s)? Some more images from the outside can bee seen on my Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/pixyourlife/ Hope you like! The backside of the building; it's just the backside! ;-) The toilet is only visible by opening a part from the backside, the restroom is "hidden" under the stairs from the ground to the first floor. Overview of the ground floor. Entrance, gift shop and office, medieval room, ancient room: Just need to make a custom sticker for the sign above the gift shop: The first floor. Far East. And a temporary exhibition of minerals or something :p Second floor. Pirates and Indians. Acces to the attick is only for staff. The attick, used as storage. It was a fun build, but it took too much time. Next finished project will hopefully be my mod of the Brick Bank, turning it into a police station! Stay tuned! Feel free to comment.
  8. You know a building is doomed when you start stealing pieces from it for another project. The interior is in ruins already, but I thought it was worth taking a photo of the facade to share. This was supposed to be a bank or maybe a library or maybe a museum. It's a bit undersized for a modular and that was bothering me. Inspired by this real bank in Staunton, VA.
  9. Description: Based on a tried & tested English Electric design, the South Australian Railways 800 Class locos were unique in that they were primarily used around Port Adelaide and in later years rarely ventured out of the metropolitan area. Seven of the class were allocated to the now defunct Gillman Yard and when not in use, were stabled at the loco servicing point at the western end of the yard. It was commonplace to see five or more 'on shed' on a weekend - the rest could usually be found at Mile End Diesel Depot. Their arrival meant the end of steam loco working from Port Adelaide depot and the remaining diminutive P class tank engines were consigned to the scrapheap. The original steam depot was closed to steam in July 1957, but used to house the new 800 class locos for a while longer. Afterwards it was used to store condemned steam locos before their disposal but by the late 1960s, the building had been abandoned and all signs of the steam era had been removed. The 800 class locos survived the state railway takeover by the Commonwealth, but were later considered obsolete and scrappings took place from 1988 to 1994, leaving only 801 to enter the National Rail Museum in Port Adelaide. (Source: 800 Class Profile by Steve McNicol from Railmac Publications, visit http://www.railmac.com) Loco 801 (first entered service on 9th June 1956) is periodically used for shunting on the museum grounds from time to time and was eventually repainted back into its original 1950s SAR colors in 2013 as part of the Rail Museum's 50th Anniversary Celebrations. Later, the 'waistband' was added and the side lights were mounted on the end deck railings. More about this model: This model features a display stand, a 60th Anniversary commemorative plaque, two Railway Museum workers; Dale Patyi and Bob Sampson and it can either be equipped with either the English Electric 6-cylinder diesel engine (if you want it as a display model) or can be motorized with the optional Power Functions for play! Also, you can take off the roof to reveal the inner workings and (only if it's not motorized!) even put the crew inside!

Happy 60th Birthday Locomotive 801! :laugh: The real locomotive (taken in 2013 before the stripe and side light modifications) Please Support this one on Ideas now! Thanks for reading!

    MOC Museum of Civilization

    Welcome to my Museum of Civilization. I wanted a place for all of my historical CMFs and thought a museum would be the best place. The former Canadian Museum of Civilization (now the Canadian Museum of History) is one of my favourite museums that had great displays that included people in costume. The ground floor has a First Nations exhibit with totem pole, and indigenous peoples from Central and South American as well as the Pacific Islands. On the other side of this level is a dinosaur display and although technically not part of civilization it is a nod to the Canadian Museum of Nature dinosaur exhibit. The dinosaur in the front hall reminds me of Sue at the Field Museum in Chicago. The second floor includes dioramas from Japan (with my rendition of the famous “The Great Wave Off Kanagawa” wood block print), historical Europe, and the Middle East. The top floor houses the ancient Greek, Roman and Egyptian civilizations and a gem display. I had made a previous MOC that I was not happy with, so I thought I would enlarge it on a 48x48 stud plate. This allowed for a more open and detailed interior. You can see a few more pictures on my flickr page. Hope you enjoy. 20160211_100217 by Karen Metz, on Flickr 20160211_100237 by Karen Metz, on Flickr 20160210_144106 by Karen Metz, on Flickr 20160207_115721 by Karen Metz, on Flickr 20160211_100424 by Karen Metz, on Flickr 20160211_095521 by Karen Metz, on Flickr 20160207_115239 by Karen Metz, on Flickr 20160211_095545 by Karen Metz, on Flickr 20160210_135546 by Karen Metz, on Flickr 20160210_135811 by Karen Metz, on Flickr 20160210_135303 by Karen Metz, on Flickr 20160210_135518 by Karen Metz, on Flickr 20160210_135222 by Karen Metz, on Flickr 20160211_095744 by Karen Metz, on Flickr

    MOC The Knight Museum

    I love museums, particularly the Museum of Civilization in Hull, Canada (now the Canadian Museum of History) and the Field Museum in Chicago. Having recently discovered collectible Lego Minifigures (I know a bit late, but better late than never), many of which have a historical theme and Lego putting out sets based on one of my favourite cartoons growing up, that being “Scooby Doo Where Are You”, I really wanted to create a Museum that incorporated all these things. After my kids got me the Tower Bridge for my birthday I had enough Lego to attempt my own creation. So here is my version of the Knight Museum. Help the Scooby Doo gang at the Knight Museum find clues and defeat a gang of villains trying to steal precious artifacts. The first episode in the original Scooby Doo cartoon series had the gang solving the Mystery of the Black Knight in the County Museum. A secret passage (behind a portrait of the Fat Lady that leads to the roof) and various hiding places allow the villains to hide out and plan and execute their nefarious plot. This lego creation tries to combine the fantasy of Scooby Doo with beauty and treasure of real life museums. This Museum has a dinosaur exhibit, and historical exhibits from Europe, Asia, the New World, and Ancient Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians. An observatory is located on the roof for star gazing. Under the stairs is a research area, a gem display and storage for unused display items. The Museum is built on two 32x32 stud base plates and is roughly double the size of a traditional modular building. Each layer and the roof can be removed as in normal modular buildings. Hope you like it. I had fun building it. Enjoy.

    [Moc] The WWII Museum

    Hello everyone :) I recently completed this MOC, which is, as the title says, a WWII museum. On the left side you can see a variety of helmets and weapons (Purchased from Brickmania). In the corner there is a mini diorama that represents the battle of the bulge with two German soldiers outfitted with Winter camouflage. Two British and American soldiers (manikins) can be seen on display at the right side of the MOC. As a center display, I decided to put a willy's jeep. Anything you like or don't like? Please let me know, I am all for constructive criticism :) Thank you, Luckypat

    [MOC] 60008 "Inspired" City Museum

    Hello! This is my city museum inspired by 60008 Museum Break-In. (http://brickset.com/sets/60008-1/Museum-Break-in) Of course, what is a museum without a detailed interior? After retiring from the Ultra Agents, Solomon Blaze has retired to a quiet job at the City Museum. Here is the museum in my city layout. Oh no! What's happening here? Never fear, the Caped Crusader will make short work of him... Thanks for looking! Comments and criticism are welcome!

    MOC: LEGO GRAND MUSEUM

    Hi everyone, This is my first time posting an MOC. I decided to build a Lego Museum with the inspiration from the Lego City Museum Set. This is a 32x32 modular. Sorry for my lousy photography and pardon my sometimes amatuerish building techniques as i had to make do with what i had (a lot of times i had to forgo ideas through a lack of parts which partly explains why the 2nd and 3rd floors are tileless...) Hope you enjoy my work. Indiana Jones: "Thanks Marion for sending me to the Museum...lots of work to be done" Indiana Jones: "I will see you later babe" Time to get to work Why am i the only one here today? Alot of bling here...wonder if i could get my hands on that bowl...could put my goldfish in it.. Ancient Soldier Statues...never really liked them.. Good thing i didnt steal that bowl, let me have a word with the security on whats up the second floor.. But before that let me check around the back...nothing much to see here..hmm. Up we go to the second floor.... what? a secuirity cam in the 1920s??? oh and that horse head looks weird.. Now we are talking.... the main attraction...thats the painting that is worth 100 million? you gotta be kidding..i can paint better than that.. Its tiring work, time to take a break...oh look there is a feedback box next to my bench... Ah, the classic mummy and his scorpion friend...seen to many of these in my expeditions.. Time to find the curator's office...wow he sure has one big office... Let me try his grand piano even though i cant play for nuts ok time to find out more from the man.. Help myself to some of his alcohol..always good... oh and what a view he has from his private balcony.. Let me check out the roof (with the kind permission of the curator of course) and i found a friend.... I need to make sure before i leave that i can find a way back in tonight... wow suddenly it became crowded but lovely Marion is still waiting for me :)

    MOC: Noodle Shop & Downtown Museum

    Noodle Shop and Downtown Museum As my Oriental district expands in my city I decided I need to build a Noodle Shop, but a 32-wide version seemed to be too large and what I really wanted was a narrow hole-in-the-wall kind of place that looked like it had been there forever so to fill in the rest of the baseplate I added a Downtown Museum. Here's a shot of the facade. And a close up of the sign - complete with two chop sticks and a scrumptious piece of Tofu (Yummy!) There are wall mounted cooking utensils and pots, a single stove, sink, fridge and food containers together with standing tables along both walls. In the Museum there is an eclectic mix of artifacts from a number of eras and Lego themes. And one of the display cabinet contains an "Evolution of the Hand" exhibit One final interior shot Thanks for reading! Comments, criticism and ridicule most welcome!

    MOC - Lego Star Wars Museum

    With all the speculation going on in the Modular rumors thread, one thing that keeps popping up is a museum. Which I agree would be a very good modular. Egyptian, etc had all been done though, and one day I was staring at my Advent Calendar bits and bobs when the idea hit me - why not do a Star Wars themed museum? I had the further 'brilliant' idea of basing the idea on the Museum of Natural History building in NYC, which looks something like this. Enough backstory, presenting... The Rebel Alliance on one side, and the Galactic Empire on the other, with Yoda welcoming visitors and the Death Star looming over everything. Front Door. Birds' eye view of the ground floor. The Rebel half - Millennium Falcon, and you can't really make them out but that's Han and Leia The Empire half - Star Destroyer and a mini Imperial shuttle Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader. The Emperor is not pleased... Han Solo hanging in Carbonite on the way upstairs Upstairs, the Rebel half These are not the droids you are looking for.. It's a trap! X-Wing and pilot Tie Fighter and pilot AT-AT, Snowtrooper and Darth Maul Somewhat out of place in between the Grand Emporium and the Green Grocer. It needs a town square of its own to lord over. [Apologies for somewhat out of focus photos. I didn't quite realize how hard it would be to photograph inside the walls once everything was up. And of course I was too lazy to take down some walls just to take photos..] Comments and critiques welcome please. Always looking to improve!

    [MOC] Gotham Museum Heist

    Catwoman and Penguin rush to the Ruby in hope to not be caught. Penguin: Hurry up and do your thing Catwoman: Alright, alright Catwoman used her claws to cut open the glass protecting the ruby as Penguin loaded a gun and pointed it at Catwoman. Penguin: Hands off kitty cat! Suddenly Penguins goons and a guard under Penguin's payroll entered the rob aiming there guns at Catwoman Catwoman: Well looks like i have been set up, your not the only one. Penguin: Ah? Just as the guard loaded his pistol Batman came flying threw the window and kicked the guard in the face as he was coming in for a landing. Penguin opened fire on Catwoman just as she retaliated and used her whip to take Penguin's pistol off him. Batman then jumped to one of the goons that tried to shoot him with his shotgun. He was to slow and was knocked out by Batman, then he proceeded by throwing a Batarang at the second goon. Penguin had seen what has happened and on his back tried to crawl away just to be kicked by Batman. Batman: Its over Cobblepot! Penguin: Arrrh! Catwoman: This should be enough to put him away for good So i combined my desire to make more Dioramas and to make one more story. I think in the future i will do more Comic/Game related stuff in the future instead.

    MOC: Neo-Classical Museum

    It's museum week! My first MOC modular: OK, so it isn't exactly a proper modular since the facade is entirely part of the 1st floor. The first floor features an atrium, Ancient Egyptian gallery, and gift shop/cafe. The galleries on the 2nd floor are Ancient Rome, Medieval, Asia, and Americas. With the roof on. Skylight looks down to the atrium. A few other pics... Thanks for looking!
  23. What's your favorite railway museum, and why? I was at the China Railway Museum here in Beijing a few weeks ago for the third time and it got me to thinking about all the wonderful train museums I've seen in my travels. I thought it might make for an interesting discussion here in the train forum. Mine would have to be the Museum of Transportation in St. Louis, Missouri. It's been awhile since I've been there, but some pieces that stick out in my mind are the Big Boy (above, photo from their website) and UP 6944 (below, photo from UP150.com): This GM Aerotrain (designed to pull modified highway bus coaches for commuters) always fascinated me (photo from Wikipedia): They also have the original EMD FT Demo engine # 103 which is a model I always admired (photo from American-Rails.com): Anyway, they have a lot of stuff there! If you're anywhere near it, don't hesitate to take a look. Their web site is here. Besides the large array of historical pieces, the fact that it was within walking distance of my home factors in a lot to it's ranking as my favorite. A couple other American museums that I remember as being exceptional are: California State Railway Museum in Sacramento, CA B & O Railway Museum in Baltimore, MD ...but I'll leave those for others to discuss as I'm not so familiar with them. Oh, the China Railway Museum in Beijing? It's pretty good! It's completely enclosed in one huge shed and they have an interesting array of motive power there. It would be better if they had more English placards and maybe a bus that goes there as it can be tricky to find and hard to get a taxi out of. If you happen to be in Beijing and have an afternoon to kill, go take a look. Their web site (in Chinese) is here, the Wikipedia entry (in English) is here. They also have an annex in the center of the city in the old Qianmen Railway Station, but I've never been there. I don't think that there's any rolling stock there. Ok, so which museum(s) is/are your favorite? Joe

    MOC: Catwoman Museum Heist

    Catwoman Museum Heist Catwoman and her crew break into Gotham Museum, but are soon surprised (Ok maybe not that surprised) to discover their plot is about to be foiled by the Dark Knight. I really like this creation. It’s a great museum, packed full of details (And lights!), and it works perfectly for a Catwoman scene. To see more of my photos or my Flickr, click the pictures.
