Remember those childhood days spent on the floor amidst a pile of colorful Legos? We do, too! Now you can relive those days and celebrate all things Lego during Lego Day at McWane Science Center on June 16. (And it’s just in time for Father’s Day weekend!)
The Ultimate Lego Adventure
On Lego Day, McWane Science Center’s Adventure Halls will transform into the ultimate Lego adventure! Let your imagination run wild and join in on Lego building activities, games and more from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Wowing Lego Displays
One Lego block may not seem like much, but set your imagination to work and press that one Lego to another—then another—and you end up with an amazing creation.
During McWane Science Center’s Lego Day, you’ll get to view incredible Lego displays that will make you step back and say, “Wow!” You’ll even have the chance to chat it up with members of the Magic City Lego Users Group. Hey, maybe you can even join the group!
Lego Displays will be held in the Special Events Center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
