Brickmania Toyworks

World War Brick 2016 will take place at Brickmania’s world headquarters in Minneapolis, MN. Also known as the Brickmania Toyworks, we are located in a huge factory complex that built armaments for during and after World War II.  Roughly 15,000 square feet of air conditioned space will be available for all WWB activities, with approximately 10,000 SF worth of displays viewable by the general public.
