History comes to life in LEGO® during Brick History, an exhibition at the Tampa Bay History Center that runs through Feb. 16, 2020.

Brick History features ­­­28 meticulously crafted models, each depicting a person, moment or discovery that altered world history. This includes key figures from Mozart to Martin Luther King, scientific discoveries from the Big Bang to DNA, and recent history from mobile phones to the moon landings.

“LEGO® artist Warren Elsmore and his team have created a celebration of our shared stories, struggles and triumphs, made from everyone’s favorite Danish toy,” according to the museum.

Tables are set up inside the exhibit area where kids and adults can build their own LEGO® brick creations. Kids can try their hand at building iconic Florida models, including a palm tree, an alligator, a sailboat and more.

The center is located at 801 Old Water Street in Tampa’s Channel District. Tickets start at $10.95 for children age 7 and up; free for children age 6 and under. More information is at TampaBayHistoryCenter.org or call 813-228-0097.
