The Art of the Brick - Now Open

Now Open!

February 17, 2024 - September 2, 2024

Named one of CNN's Top Ten "Global Must-See Exhibitions," The Art of the Brick exhibit by artist Nathan Sawaya is a critically acclaimed collection of inspiring artworks made exclusively from one of the most recognizable toys in the world: the LEGO® brick. From child's toy to sophisticated art form and beyond, the world's largest display of LEGO art ever features original pieces as well as re-imagined versions of the world’s most famous art masterpieces like Van Gogh's Starry Night and Da Vinci's Mona Lisa as well as a gallery showcasing an innovative, multimedia collection of LEGO brick infused photography produced in tandem with award-winning photographer Dean West. ​ 

After exploring the exhibit galleries, guests will enter a 9,000-square-foot brick play space to build their imaginative creations using hundreds of thousands of colorful bricks.

Know Before You Go

  • Advanced tickets are strongly recommended to secure your preferred timeslot.
  • The Art of the Brick is a timed-entry exhibit, which allows us to manage the number of guests in the exhibit, providing the best possible experience for everyone. 
  • If you have daytime tickets, especially late afternoon, we suggest you plan to arrive at the museum early to explore our core exhibits before The Art of the Brick, as those galleries and experiences close at 5:00 pm daily
  • Weekends and holidays are our busiest times. We ask that you only enter The Art of the Brick at your designated entry time. If you arrive earlier, you may be asked to return at the time stated on your ticket.
