This past weekend I experienced the sights of Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Boston and New York all by way of LEGOs. You are probably wondering how did this happen? Well, I checked out LEGO’s traveling exhibit during a quick trip to Birmingham.
The exhibit, The LEGO® Americana Roadshow: Building Across America, consists of large-scale models of some of America’s well-known landmarks. It was absolutely amazing what these LEGO builders can accomplish with the tiny plastic bricks. This is the perfect activity for kids of all ages to get a mini-history lesson while marveling at these impressive structures, and there is even play areas for our next generation of engineers and architects to tinker.
U.S. Capitol Building
Old North Church
Statue of Liberty
What do you think? Are you as impressed with these models as I am? How many hours do you think it took to construct each model?
If you are in Birmingham, be sure to stop by Riverchase Galleria before September 7th.
No worries my Atlanta friends, it’s coming to Northpoint Mall in Alpharetta from September 17 to October 4 so mark your calendars!
