Worlds of Wonder: Where nature, technology and history come to life, through LEGO® bricks! @ Museum of Surrey
Jun 20 – Nov 4 all-day

 

Did you know six eight-stud LEGO® bricks can be combined in over 915 million different ways? Wow! Imagine what a couple of million bricks could create.

The feature gallery is being transformed this spring in partnership with the VLC, Vancouver’s Community for Adult Fans of LEGO. Enter Worlds of Wonder and see existence transform before your eyes into creations made of colorful LEGO® bricks.

Which adventure will you choose? Whether nature, technology or history, inspired bricks will tell the story in a way you’ve never seen before. A tornado built of LEGO®? Yup! Take a walk back in time to see dinosaurs or medieval castles. Even visit the International Space Station – all without leaving Surrey.

Tuesday to Saturday Times: 9:30 am to 5:30 pm

Sunday Times: 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm

Monday Times: CLOSED
