Victorian engineers were the first to build bridges across wide, deep natural gorges and treacherous waters like the Menai Strait.
Today we build bridges across far greater distances and can see off even greater engineering challenges. Yet the principles remain the same.
So at ICE we are celebrating the very best of bridge building with a major exhibition that spans three centuries of bridge engineering achievements.
A visit to the ICE Bridge Engineering exhibition is free and includes interactive and virtual reality displays, films - and the world's longest ever bridge span made entirely from LEGO.
What you’ll find in the exhibition and the experts who brought the LEGO bridge into being.
Post a ‘bridge selfie’ and you (and it) could appear at our Bridge Engineering exhibition. You just need: a bridge, you and a camera.
Exhibition opening hours, where it is and how to get there. Also, eating and drinking options.
The refurbishment of the exhibition space has been made possible with financial support from the following founding partners:
