Fans of nanoblock, there is a little piece of heaven waiting for you at Changi Airport's Terminal 3.

A nanoblock museum has popped up on Level B2 opposite Kopitiam food court and there are 249 designs on display. They are divided into six zones - dinosaurs, musical instruments, wonders of the world, outer space, wilderness and Japan.

Spot Singapore's Merlion in brick form and look out for the nanoGauge train - modelled after Japan's most famous train, the shinkansen bullet train, as it moves around a railway track.

Some 80,000 to 100,000 of the micro-sized building blocks were used in total.

This marks the debut of a nanoblock museum outside its birthplace of Japan and the pop-up will run till May 1.

It is open from 11am to 10pm daily.
