Builders of all ages are invited to explore, build and play in our newest traveling exhibition – LEGO® Castle Adventure!

Visitors will be immersed in castle-life through experiences and activities including:

  • Builders of all ages and skill levels can construct castles, learn about real-world castles and their building secrets, and plan their ideal castle’s defenses. The Builders Guild is divided into three age-appropriate build areas:
    • Apprentice Builders (toddlers) can build using soft foam LEGO bricks.
    • Journeyman Builders (ages 3-6) build with LEGO® Duplo® bricks.
    • Master Builders (ages 7 and up) can create designs with brick paper and then build using classic LEGO bricks.
  • Exploring the inside of the royal castle full of LEGO brick decorations, the king and queen’s thrones and secret passageways.
  • Virtually build a fortress wall on screen and test its strength with a LEGO catapult.
  • Using a colorful array of green bricks, children can plan and create and build their own topiaries.
  • Climb into the lookout tower and defend the castle walls.
