Event Details

Featuring 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, history comes to life in LEGO® bricks during “Brick History,” a new exhibit at the Tampa Bay History Center opening Oct. 19.

The exhibit features ­­­28 meticulously crafted models, each depicting a person, moment or discovery that altered world history.

“The Arts” explores creativity from cave paintings to pop art; “Conflict” moves from natural disasters like Pompeii to political disputes such as the Boston Tea Party; “Equality” brings to life the Civil Rights movement; “Exploration” depicts discoveries and inventions that have changed our world, while “Transport” moves from railways and seafaring to flight.

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.

There will be tables set up inside the exhibit area where both 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.

“Brick History” will also feature some bay area flare, with LEGO brick portraits of pirates, local sports logos and a map of Florida by Tampa artist John Fontana with Bricks 4 Kidz.

The exhibit is on view at the History Center in Tampa through Feb. 16, 2020.

The Tampa Bay History 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.
