I think my wife and I were more impressed with this exhibit than our 10 year old granddaughter. We thought the lego sculptures were amazing.

Went with my class to the exhibit. The exhibit has changed from some months ago. It has a few additional specimens and the layout is different. Continues to be a treat as well as educational.

Cliched and unimaginative fabrications that are only somewhat interesting because it's made of Lego. Half of the exhibition is made of famous paintings and sculptures remade in lego, while the other half is cliched, arty and completely unimaginative. There are a few pieces that show some traces of original thinking or at least visually appealing, but I would suggest you... More

I kind of expected this to be just like being at Lego land or something. The story of the artist and his work was great! The exhibit includes a combination of replicas of great artwork, redone with Legos! as well as original work he has done. I was very impressed! This is well worth a visit, and you can get... More

My 14 year old son loved Legos when he was younger. We had to go see this exhibit! This was a fantastic exhibit and truly amazing even if you are not a Lego fanatic! We spent about an hour or so here. We also grabbed a DC cupcake in the basement when we finished!

If you are grossed out by anything medical, then this exhibition is not for you. I and my husband have allied health backgrounds and found it to be very well done. It was respectful and the posses showed the wonder of how complicated and strong, yet flexible the human body is. Yes the mother and 7 month old baby in... More

not really something exciting -the sculptures are somehow odd posed and cut so I am not sure whether this should be educational or art. for somebody coming from a health profession not very exciting and still ethically questionable -would not recommend

I missed this exhibition when it came to London so was over the moon the I realised it was covered with NY pass (one of the reason I let my friend convince me to purchase pass). There’s a lot to take in but it’s all very interesting and insightful. From the cartoon bit at the beginning which talks about our... More

Great fun for the young and old. Came here with my daughter's family as a part of well planned activity afternoon for her three small children. On Wednesday afternoon, the place was not crowded and therefore the little kids could get a really close look of all the pieces on display. They loved the large dinosaur that took up an... More
