We’re delighted to be hosting the winning entries from the Heritage Council’s Heritage at Play Competition for LEGO® brick enthusiasts!

The Heritage Council invited children across the country to get creative and showcase an element of Irish built, natural or cultural heritage using LEGO® bricks.

The winning pieces have been chosen, and will be on display in the museum from Tuesday 18th January to Sunday 30th January. LEGO Brick Artist and Competition Judge Jessica Farrell will also have some of her creations on display.

What is Heritage?

Heritage is what we have inherited from the past, to value and enjoy in the present, and to preserve and pass on to future generations.

Built Heritage

The historical layers of our built environment reveal how people of the past lived. Houses, shops, schools, streets, museums and monuments are all part of our built heritage. This built heritage shapes how we live our lives today.

Cultural Heritage

Music, crafts, sports, dance, folklore and language are all part of our cultural heritage. Cultural heritage in passed on from generation to generation, evolving over time and shaping who we are.

Natural heritage

Landscapes, habitats, animals and plant species are our natural heritage. It is our responsibility to conserve our shared natural heritage for future generations.
