Lego Exhibition

The creative force has arrived at the Sidney Museum with our newest presentation of the ever-popular Lego Exhibition celebrating over 60 years of Lego imagination. Dozens of Star Wars themed Lego models provide a special focus for this exciting exhibit, rounded out by hundreds of other Lego models including Hogwarts Castle and Lego model of the Bugatti Chiron automobile.

Our guests will learn about the history of the many Lego models on display, a special opportunity to guess how many bricks comprise the giant Lego Pyramid as well as the opportunity to enjoy the special presentation film on the origin and development of the Lego building system.

Lego, derived from the Danish leg godt (play well) began in the workshop of Ole Kirk Christiansen (1891 – 1958) who began his career as a maker of wooden toys. With the introduction of the Automatic Binding Bricks in 1949, and the modern brick design in 1958, Lego began a toy revolution which culminated in Lego becoming beloved by generations, and standing the test of time. They were even one of the original inductees into the National Toy Hall of Fame in Rochester, New York
