Best of the Brick Weekend
at the National Museum of Play®
April 27 & 28

Get in touch with your inner architect and celebrate all things LEGO® at the Best of the Brick Weekend at the National Museum of Play at The Strong® on Saturday, April 27 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, April 28 from 1 to 4 p.m.

  • Race against the clock at LEGO build-a-thon sessions from 1 to 4 p.m. daily. Join with your friends and family and see what unique vehicles you can create before the buzzer goes off!
  • Meet LEGO artist Greg Hyland from noon to 4 p.m. daily and get a one-of-a-kind drawing from the artist. Hyland has worked on a number of mini movies for LEGO’s Prince of Persia line, created storyboards for stop-motion LEGO Bionicle Stars movies, art for the LEGO SpongeBob SquarePants and Batman sets, and more.
  • Construct amazing towers and other structures with LEGO DUPLO® bricks, and create a paper LEGO block to take home.

Don’t miss the LEGO® Travel Adventure exhibit (open through May 12) and pretend to fly above the clouds in a Travel Adventure Vehicle, hit the road in a child-sized racecar built entirely out of LEGO bricks, and make your own LEGO brick vehicle. Marvel at amazing sculptures and displays by master LEGO builders, and much more.
