They would love the…
Lego Americana Roadshow!
Recently, we stumbled upon this fun and FREE event at the Bridgewater, NJ Mall.
Displayed all over the mall are large scale Lego models of famous U.S. Landmarks being shown through April 17, 2016.
Yes, this model of the U.S. Capitol building is made entirely of Legos! Amazing, right? My son was completely captivated by every display.
The attention to detail is incredible!
This picture was taken from the second level so you can see how huge some of these things are!
My son was also excited because we have seen many of the real buildings in person.
This is the Old North Church in Boston and is one of the stops on the famous Freedom Trail. Ironically, we just traveled to Boston a couple weeks ago and walked the Freedom Trail! Unfortunately, we stopped for lunch at Stop #12 (Faneuil Hall) and didn’t continue on to the end. If only we had gone two more stops, we would have seen this in person! I guess this Lego model is the closest we will get for awhile!
As you can see, each model sits next to a sign which explains the historical significance of the building. It also includes details about the model such as how many hours it took to build.
I loved the Liberty Bell. I don’t think my kids have seen the real one in person yet. Time for a road trip to Philadelphia!
And while we are in Philly, we can stop by Independence Hall!
Our family has really gotten into skiing these past few years so we thought this one was cute. This is just one of the smaller displays. Almost everything else is a famous building or landmark.
Speaking of landmarks..
And that’s just a handful of what is on display right now. If you are in the area, stop by the Bridgewater Mall and check them out. It’s such a fun family activity whether your kids are into Legos, or not! (Mine of course, still are!)
Here is the website so you can see if the models are traveling to your area – The Lego Americana Roadshow.
