Imaginative, inspiring, sculpture and art, making you think like you used to when you were a kid. There is some fun hidden symbolism you could also look out for, but changing perspective on each work. Move 360 degrees around and occasionally, there's something to laugh...More

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!

Visited this exhibit at Port de Versailles in Paris - incredible! I had vaguely heard of Nathan Sawaya's work before, and as a Lego fan I was interested in seeing his creations. I was completely blown away! I had not realized the scale and scope...More
