Saturday, September 22nd is the LAST Saturday to experience the "Travel Adventure" exhibit featuring LEGO Bricks before it leaves the building!

The interactive exhibit will take visitors on an extraordinary adventure to exotic locations through all kinds of terrain. Guests of all ages will think creatively to plan and build vehicles to move through mountains, jungles, oceans, deserts and more. Families are invited to dress up as pilots, sailors, racers and world explorers as they take the wheel of life-sized toy vehicles and engage in dynamic play. Duplo bricks will be on hand for younger guests. Visitors will be able to share their creations through a photography booth set up against a destination backdrop. Visit San Francisco, Paris, Hawaii and more real-life destinations, all while learning about travel history. Guests will answer three important questions: “Where will you go,” “How will you get there” and “What will you build?”
