Figge’s LEGO® exhibit is fun for all ages

For those who love architecture, art or building – the newest exhibit at the Figge Art Museum is definitely worth a visit.

We recently spent a morning checking out the newest exhibition – The Art of Architecture. The exhibit includes large scale models made from LEGO® bricks by Architect Adam Reed Tucker. One of only 14 LEGO® Certified Professionals in the world, Tucker creates architectural models that become the basis for new LEGO kits and other products.

The exhibition includes twelve replicas of architectural masterpieces – like the John Hancock Building, St. Louis Arch and Empire State Building.

The large models were incredible – for my preschooler and for me. The builders are recreated using only the most basic of pieces, and they are so realistic.

But the best part for us was the Family Activity Center. The area has been transformed into a LEGO® wonderland. We spent hours building our own masterpieces with blocks from giant to tiny.

The area is really a wonderful escape for kids and a way to help them develop their own building skills. And the inspiration from the large-scale models had my son aiming to create his own castles and towers.

Figge Lego Exhibit3We will definitely be back.

And you won’t want to miss all the LEGO® fun – this is on display until May 29.

Hours: Tuesday to Saturday 10 am-5 pm; Thursday 10 am-9 pm; Sunday 12-5 pm

While it is great for blog traffic, the ideas work beyond blogging for writing book descriptions or sales pages also. Thank you for putting this together
