World War II in LEGOs Traveling Exhibit Coming to Evansville Museum June 17-19
LEGOs have come a long way since they were invented in 1932. No longer are they simply small, plastic bricks for kids to build rectangular cars that would never be practical in the real world, they've become part of pop culture as the basis for countless video games, and one of the best movies ever. But despite all that, at the end of the day, they're still simply small, plastic bricks kids of all ages can use to build whatever landscape their minds can imagine, from a simple rectangular car, to full on recreations of the most important times in world history.
An example of the latter will be on display in Evansville June 17th through the 19th when "World War II in LEGOs" makes its way to the Evansville Museum on Riverside Drive.
The traveling exhibit is put together by Brickmania, and features replicas of the USS Missouri and USS Nicholas, as well as the Brandenburg Gate circa 1945 which served as the gateway between Germany and East Germany at the conclusion of the War, the Battle of the Bulge, and six Mosaic Portraits of important World War II personages all recreated completely out of LEGO bricks and figures.
Admission is $5.00 per person for Museum members, and $10 per person for non-members. The $5.00 admission for members also includes entry into a special showing of the LEGO Movie at the Kock Immersive Theater.
