LEGO® Architecture: Towering Ambition
July 3, 2010 - September 3, 2012


Architectural toys, like Erector Sets®, Lincoln Logs®, LEGO® bricks, and blocks, create a bridge between the physical world and imagined ones for both children and adults.

This program is presented in conjunction with the exhibition LEGO Architecture: Towering Ambition. The exhibition will be open, free-of-charge, beginning at 5:30 p.m.  The Museum's Shop will also be open, featuring building blocks and models.
