If you have kids and they like Legos-- and what kid doesn't?!?-- then you'll want to check out this way-cool new exhibit featuring Lego models of the tallest buildings in the word that just opened here in Minnesota.

The Science Museum of Minnesota (when it's not being featured in the Netflix series, Stranger Things, that is) just opened this incredibly cool display up in St. Paul, called 'Towers of Tomorrow,' which features Lego models of some of the tallest buildings in the world.

This TwinCities.com story says display features 700,000 Lego pieces, with more than half a million in the 20 towers in the display alone. It took builders over 2,400 hours to build the models in the display-- which weighs over 1.5 tons!

To celebrate the Bold North's time in the spotlight as host of Super Bowl LII, there's even a Lego version of U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, made with 25,000 individual bricks.

And, seeing as it's a Lego display, your kids won't just have to look at the already-built Lego models, they can build their own, too, using some of the 200,000 individual Legos not part of the models. Here are the details, courtesy of TwinCities.com:

  • What: Towers of Tomorrow with Lego Bricks
  • When: Through Sept. 3 during regular Science Museum hours
  • Tickets: Included in Science Museum exhibit gallery admission ($18.95 for adults and $12.95 for kids ages 4 to 12 and seniors). Combination Omnitheater and exhibit gallery admission is also available.
  • Info: 651-221-9444 or smm.org.
