HistoryLand is an idea of three friends – Marcin Tobolski, Krzysztof Tobolski and Marcin Pietrucha. A passion for history , LEGO bricks and their hometown –Posen [Poznan] bound them together.
This idea was born more than 10 years ago, but its implementation took some years –viz.until 2017, when the exhibition was inaugurated.
Why so long? The first step in the activities of the three friends was establishing a LEGO store in Posen to get easy access to orders for the bricks desired. Models took shape in the founders’ garages and were made meticulously in close cooperation with mockup makers and under close supervision of historian invited to this project. The LEGO bricks, used for making all 1:50 scale models (by matching the structures to the sizes of a LEGO figure), totaled more than one million.
A great deal of work on mockups was combined with professional video-mapping projected upon the models, multimedia interactivity and the town of live history –Cracow.
Listen to an interview with Marcin Tobolski, President of HisotryLand
Nowadays, we are under the patronage , among others, of Cracow City, the Archaeological Museum in Biskupin, Museum of the Grunwald Battlefield, GRoteska Theatre. Every day we are visited by both organized groups from educational establishments and individual customers.
A visit to the exhibition means not only a travel through the history of Poland, but also entering a visionary world of creators – fiends and [we do hope] and inspiration for our own creativity
