The Brick-by-Brick exhibition at the Museum of Science and Industry features more than a dozen giant, Lego-built engineering marvels and provides a stage for children to explore science and architecture.
The Legos create a 60-foot-long Golden Gate Bridge, the International Space Station, the St. Louis Gateway Arch, the Hoover Dam, the Colosseum in Rome and more.
Visitors can build Lego structures and test their resistance to wind and earthquakes as a part of the exhibition. They can learn the science behind structural integrity.
“At the essence of innovation, science and engineering is creativity, and the simple act of ‘play’ is its catalyst,” said Kurt Haunfelner, vice president of exhibits and collections at the Museum of Science and Industry.
The exhibition runs through February 2017.
