In this paper, we run two methods of explanation, namely LIME and Grad-CAM, on a convolutional neural network trained to label images with the LEGO bricks that are visible in them. We evaluate them on two criteria, the improvement of the network's core performance and the trust they are able to generate for users of the system. We find that in general, Grad-CAM seems to outperform LIME on this specific task: it yields more detailed insight from the point of view of core performance and 80\% of
