Travel around the World with the Latest in LEGOs

If there’s one children’s museum that beats them all, it might just be the National Museum of Play up in Rochester, New York. They’ve got all kinds of hands on exhibits going on all year long, but their latest feature might just call for a bit of a road trip and visit.

The LEGO Travel Adventure exhibit recently opened up to both the big and little kids, as plenty of brick built exhibits show off a brief history of the world. Obviously there’s some hands on opportunities as well, as you can pick up and piece together your own bit of history thanks to some free time with the LEGOs.

It’s all about travel, so you can expect plenty of different LEGO vehicles and ideas on how to get from here to there. We’re not sure if they have a LEGO-fied version of a Boeing 787, but they do promise the ability to pretend to fly above the clouds in some kind of Travel Adventure Vehicle. You’re welcome to piece together you own car, vehicle, or travel transporter, and you can even try your hand at designing it with a little help from the computer.

The travel meets LEGO exhibit does its thing through May 12, so if it’s a little too chilly to visit Rochester this winter—you still have some time. Best of all there’s no additional fee or charge to check this out in person, as it’s all included with the general museum admission. For you and the kiddos it’ll set you back $13 per person to visit, but if your little ones are little—like under two—they can sneak in for free.
