This was an incredible Lego display by Nathan Seweya. It was made with bricks of the original bold reds, blues, greens and yellows. The models were of things like The Sphynx, the Parthenon, the American Gothic, an apple, 4 skull masks and many more. I don't think it is good for very young children, as most of the displays require... More

It's very expensive for what you get.. The site is Ok, well designed but some.stuff didn't work, employees really need to improve on acting like agents..there's is no interaction. Don't waste your money...

After reading mediocre reviews of the Avengers exhibit happening at the same time, we opted for Art of the Brick instead. Because of the Lego, we expected it to be geared towards kids. It is not - it is Lego reproductions of famous art works, and some original works - all by artist Nathan Sawaya. I wish I had checked... More

We thought this exhibit would be cool, awesome, Marvel like but the beginning of the experience hyped us up for NOTHING. We came in were able to make cool SHIELD cards, went into a training room, got a briefing and then onward to the crappy exhibits. Half the exhibits didn't work and the ones that did really didn't get a... More

Let's start with this: Black Widow and Hawkeye are Avengers. So why did they not get a display of their own like the other four Avengers did? That was extremely disappointing. Next, there could have been way more props on display. Sure there were some costumes and a couple of props (and I really mean only a couple), but it... More

Very good, highly educational, phenomenal recreation of human body parts! Extremely realistic recreations, makes you appreciate the amazing and very complicated human body.

Short Review: As the reviewer below pointed out, half of the exhibits did not work, it is exceedingly overpriced seeing that all you get is a card that could essentially be printed out at home and you cannot even take pictures in the exhibit which just seems dumb. Its definitely a tourist trap. Long Review: My girlfriend surprised me by... More

With great excitement, I took my son to the Avengers. The serious pricing raised an eyebrow, but, hey, this is The Avengers!! Even before entering the attraction, you have to input your details in a kiosk and are told you will get a special keycard. Of course, this is designed just to get your email, but hey, this 'interactive' keycard... More

It is an interesting exposition. We have visited Bodyworks and Art of Bricks expositions. Both worth your time and money. Bodyworks is somewhat unique and very educational if you take your time and read all of the informational plaques. No pictures allow so I did not take any. Art of Brick is a lot of fun and shows that there... More

A fun exhibition if you're a Marvel fan! You can tell they spent a lot of money to build this exhibition to mimic an Avengers training facility. Lots of cool displays from the actual movie throughout the exhibit, along with interactive training things to test your skills. Unfortunately, you can't take any pictures inside the exhibit but still a fun... More
