That’s right. A couple of friends told me to hit the bricks, and that’s what I did. I took in the LEGO® Travel Adventure at the Great Lakes Science Center. See what I did there?
As its name suggests, the exhibit explores the excitement of travel through various LEGO displays and hands-on activities. Dioramas in LEGO bricks bring to life significant moments in travel history, including the first airplane flight at Kitty Hawk. Designated areas allow families to work as a team and build their own vehicle. You’ll also find a racecar built out of DUPLOS® that your child can sit in. How cool is that? It sure makes for a fun photo op.
My favorite part of the exhibit is a collection of LEGO landmarks and mosaics, built by Beachwood, Ohio math teacher Arthur Gugick. You could easily get lost in each one for hours. As a music and art lover, Gugick’s work sure stopped me in my tracks. Take a peek:
The pièce de résistance? A lenticular mosaic that morphs from Eeyore and Piglet to Tigger, depending on your vantage point.
I was just over the moon with these works. And then I walked into the NASA Glenn Visitor Center…
So, Cleveland, what are you waiting for? Hit the bricks!
Until next time, be kind to yourself. And each other.
