Located in a 3,000 square-foot corner of the third floor, this wide-open innovative space is fully stocked with cardboard boxes and scraps of all shapes and sizes just waiting to be repurposed in new ways. Little (and big) visitors can find safety scissors, tape, crayons, aprons, and a variety of suggestions and ideas on hand to aid in their construction projects.
When the cardboard creations are complete, they can either be taken home or left behind to display in a centerpiece assemblage in the middle of the room.
While you’re there, don’t miss the chance to stroll through the amazing collection of large-scale LEGO sculptures in “The Art of the Brick” exhibit going on next door through Jan. 6.
Here, you’ll marvel at full-sized reinterpreted masterworks like the Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo and Van Gogh’s Starry Night, along with incredibly life-like human figures and other clever pieces. Yes, all composed of LEGOs.
A LEGO workstation just outside the exhibit offers yet another chance for young guests to play, learn and leave their own artistic marks behind.
Access to both “The Art of the Brick” and “Cardboard Engineering” is included as part of your general museum admission.
