Largest Lego Titanic replica comes to East Tennessee

Local News

The world’s largest replica of the Titanic built entirely out of Legos is now exclusively in East Tennessee.

The model is made of more than 56,000 Legos, put together by a boy from Iceland when he was 10 years old. He’s now 15.

The boy has autism and says building the incredible replica was a way for him to express himself. Years after he completed it, the model is making its first top in the United States at the Titanic Museum in Pigeon Forge.

The museum’s curator says they were contacted by the boy’s family looking for a permanent home for his creation.
