Towers of Tomorrow With Lego Bricks at the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation

Explore world's coolest skyscrapers through Lego models on display at the Towers of Tomorrow With Lego Bricks exhibit in Dearborn Oct. 12, 2019-Jan. 5, 2020.

Is your child a future engineer in the making? Let him or her explore that passion and learn about some of the world’s most awe-inspiring skyscrapers at the temporary Towers of Tomorrow With Lego Bricks exhibit at The Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation in Dearborn.

This interactive exhibit, which is on display Oct. 12, 2019 through Jan. 5, 2020, features more than 20 iconic buildings made entirely out of Lego bricks at a 1:200 scale.

Kids and grownups will explore the skill it takes to build skyscrapers through these models, which include the CN Tower in Toronto, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the Shanghai Tower in China, both the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building in New York and many others.

They’ll get to test their skills, too, by building their own vision of a future city using more that 200,000 loose bricks at the exhibit – and learning a bit about what went into the exhibit’s creation via video interviews with Lego professional Ryan McNaught.

Towers of Tomorrow With Lego Bricks is open during regular the museum hours of 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. daily, in The Gallery by General Motors at The Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation in Dearborn.

Admission is $24/adults ages 12-61, $22/seniors and $18/kids ages 5-11. Kids ages 4 and under are admitted free of charge and parking is $6/vehicle.
