The Largest Titanic Replica Built by Boy with Autism is in Tennessee

56,000 Legos, 11 months and 700 hours. That's what went into creating the world's largest Lego Titanic replica which is now on display at the Titanic Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge, TN. 

 

Brynjar Karl Birgisson, 15 years old, is autistic. He began construction on the 26-feet-long, 5-feet-wide ship when he was 10. He views his autism as more of a gift, rather than something negative saying, many autistic people are really intelligent. He says, "We are people as well, we just seem a little different on the outside, but inside, we're always the same."
