Visitors can create their own 'towers of tomorrow' with over 200,000 loose LEGO® bricks available in hands-on construction areas. Young and old will be limited only by their imaginations as they add their creations to a steadily rising futuristic LEGO® metropolis inside the exhibition.

“We have a unique opportunity to explore the vertical dimension of the built environment with this amazing exhibition,” said Mi-Sci President and CEO Dr. Christian Greer. “An incredible amount of design, engineering, and artistry goes into constructing new living and working spaces that rise above street level to pierce the clouds. Towers of Tomorrow provides the perfect STEAM experience to put our guests at the center of science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math––allowing them to become architects expressing the hopes and dreams of civilization through LEGO bricks.”

Towers of Tomorrow with LEGO Bricks was brought to life by Ryan McNaught, one of only 21 LEGO® certified professionals worldwide. McNaught and his award-winning team of builders have used over half a million LEGO® bricks and devoted over 2000 hours to building the structures featured in the exhibition.
