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
