Lego Titanic Replica Built By 10-Year-Old Boy With Autism On Display In Pigeon Forge

A 10-year-old boy with autism from Iceland built an astounding replica of the Titanic out of Legos, and now that model has found a home in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee at the Titanic Museum Attraction through 2020.

Brynjar Karl Birgisson, now 15, created the 5-foot-high, 4-foot-wide Titanic model using 56,000 Legos, according to Knox News. Birgisson developed an obsession with the ill-fated ship, and he spent 11 months building the giant replica. His grandpa, who initially thought the massive scale of the project would put his grandson off making it, helped him. The duo even borrowed a storage room in order to have space to construct the massive project. Ultimately, they spent at least 700 hours recreating the beloved ship.

The Internet named Birgisson “the Lego boy” and his impressive creation, which cost nearly $ 8,105 in U.S. currency to build, toured around the world with stops in Norway, Sweden, Germany, and Iceland.
