Brick by Brick opens March 10, 2016 at Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry (MSI)

Explore the power of play in Brick by Brick, a new temporary exhibit opening March 10, 2016 and runs through early 2017.

This exhibit, developed and created by MSI, will feature a spectacular collection of more than a dozen giant LEGO®-built engineering marvels, including a 60-foot long Golden Gate Bridge, the International Space Station, Hoover Dam and Roman Colosseum.

These cool constructions by LEGO® Certified Professional and Chicago native Adam Reed Tucker are paired with hands-on building challenges that reinforce principles of engineering, construction and architecture—and encourage creativity! Both kids and adults will leave the exhibit understanding that play is a powerful thing, and that a new world can come from a single brick.
