Folks just can’t get seem to enough of those little bricks, what with the incredible (and totally well-deserved) success of The LEGO Movie and now, the return of one of our favorite museum exhibits from 2013. Back by popular demand, Nathan Sawaya’s amazing all-LEGO show “The Art of the Brick” once again calls Discovery Times Square home! And this time, it’ll be accompanied in an adjacent gallery by In Pieces, a new multimedia collection with photographer Dean West.


RECOMMENDED: Best new museum exhibits for kids in 2014


Now through May 11, families can take a second look (or a first one, if they didn’t get a chance last year!) at the world’s largest display of LEGO art, featuring more than 100 sculptures, including a T. rex skeleton and a replica of Van Gogh’s Starry Night. For more details on the show, check out our feature article.


"The Art of the Brick" will be on view at Discovery Times Square through May 11.
