It’s time to get creative! What will you make from the thousands of LEGO® bricks in The Brick Room?

Let your imagination run wild, and make a creation to be displayed temporarily for others to enjoy. You’ll even get to write a museum label for your model.

There’ll be bricks galore and plenty of building stations in this fun space for kids to make, play, and learn.

For grown-ups, there’ll be ample seating to relax and recharge as your little ones are busy building.

We'll have some items from our collection in the room for inspiration. Just bring your imagination, and we'll bring the bricks!
