The museum tells us LEGO expert Dan Parker is back for the sixth year to help kids get creative with building. They’ll have a huge supply of bricks and specialty pieces to choose from, and Parker will offer some special classes on LEGO tricks and techniques. The workshop is for children ages 5 to 12, and the cost is $25 for museum members, and $35 for nonmembers. Registration is necessary and can be done through Eventbrite.
Other upcoming events for kids at the museum include:
