There is nothing at the address listed (226 W 44th St) and the last review is from June 29, 2018. Is there any permanent display in NY? Is the address correct?

This was stunning. Saw it in Zurich. Quite superb; real life figures in LEGO. Even a dinosaur! Worth a visit for folks Olaf and young. For kids would say 10+ to have an appreciation.

I didn't see this in NY. We went to The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. My advice...GO!! See this exhibit!! If you are a Lego lover it is an absolute MUST! It was worth every single penny. I would go again in a heartbeat!

It's almost impossible to describe how amazing this exhibit is. We actually held off going as we assumed it was something for kids. How wrong we were. I doubt kids can appreciate the art of this exhibit. This collection of art has been done by...More
