My kids love playing with LEGOs to build creations out of the box and get creative on their own. So, when they found out about the Nashville LEGO show was coming to Opry Mills Mall, we had to get tickets. There are over 40 amazing LEGO creations made up of over 2 million bricks to explore and interact with. Plus, there’s a fun contest for builders of all ages to participate in.
I’ll write a review after we visit next month, but in the meantime, here are the details so you can buy your tickets and (if you’re interested) enter the contest.
Nashville LEGO show at Opry Mills
The LEGO exhibition tour started in Seattle and Nashville is the second stop on a tour across the country.
The Nashville LEGO show is held at the Opry Mills Mall in Nashville. Its address is 539 Opry Mills Drive, Nashville, Tennessee. And it is located near Entrance 6 and the Regal Theatre. Click here for a map of the Opry Mills Mall.
LEGO Certified Professional Ryan McNaught is known as “The Brickman” to hardcore LEGO fans. Ryan is one of only 22 LEGO Certified Professionals in the world, so you know there will be some incredible creations at the Nashville LEGO exhibit. He and his team of master builders have created an interactive world of Legos for families to enjoy.
At the Nashville LEGO show, you’ll go on a tour of some of the most awesome places and vehicles made completely out of LEGOs. The interactive LEGO exhibit includes a 24 1/2 foot tall NASA SLS rocket, an 8-foot tall orca whale, and the first life-sized LEGO Harley Davidson ever made.
There are 40 models inside the exhibit that are made from more than two million LEGO bricks. And it took Brickman and his master builders almost 5,000 hours to build these iconic creations.
And when you’re done with the show, visit the LEGO Store at Opry Mills Mall. You’ll find an even greater selection of LEGO sets, clothing, and more.
Music City is AWESOME: LEGO building contest
Brickman is hosting the first-ever LEGO building contest in Nashville. The theme is “Music City is AWESOME!” which should launch some incredible creativity for builders of all ages.
The rules for the contest are:
- Builds should use around 300 pieces or less.
- The builds cannot be a standard LEGO® set.
- One entry is allowed per individual.
There are three categories for the Nashville LEGO contest: 1) under 12 years old, 2), ages 12 to 17, and 3) 18 and above.
How to participate in the Nashville LEGO contest
To participate in the Nashville LEGO contest, build your entry using these rules, then photograph your creation and email the photos to this address. Include your name, age, an estimate of bricks used, an estimate of time to build, and one AWESOME fact about your model.
If you share your creation on social media, tag them on Twitter or Instagram and use #AwesomeExhibition so that Brickman can share them as well!
All entries must be submitted by Friday, May 20, 2022. Judging starts the following week and winners will be contacted directly.
Nashville LEGO show winners receive
There will be one winner for each age group. The winner of each group will receive:
- Four tickets to the Nashville LEGO show at Opry Mills
- A $100 gift card to the LEGO Store

I know that my kids would love to win a $100 gift card to the LEGO store. They love building LEGOs and get creative with their blocks.
