Build with us at ‘Towers of Tomorrow’ exhibition opening June 1
Discovery Place Science
It will be a summer of innovation at Discovery Place Science as we welcome our latest traveling exhibition, Towers of Tomorrow with LEGO® Bricks, beginning June 1. The exhibition features 20 of the world’s most astonishing skyscrapers – from the Empire State Building in New York to China’s Shanghai Tower – made to scale out of LEGO bricks.
Constructed with breathtaking architectural detail and accuracy by Ryan “The Brickman” McNaught, one of just 14 certified LEGO professionals in the world, these awe-inspiring creations offer birds-eye views of the extraordinary buildings, which are just as impressive in model size.
Adults and children alike will be captivated by the stunning models and might even find themselves asking, “Is that really made of LEGO bricks?” The answer is yes. In fact, it took more than half a million LEGO bricks (and more than 2,400 hours) to build the Towers of Tomorrow exhibition.
Visitors can be in the action, too, with this hands-on exhibition that includes 200,000 loose LEGO bricks for guests to contribute their own towers of tomorrow to a community display.
“This is a chance for them to create their own vision of the future and gain a better understanding of how we can build that future together,” said Catherine Wilson Horne, Discovery Place president and CEO.
Bring your family and friends to build with us from June 1 through September 2!
Towers of Tomorrow with LEGO Bricks is a traveling exhibition from Sydney Living Museums and toured internationally by Flying Fish.
