LEGO Fun All Month Long 

Written by Meghan E. Gattignolo

Throughout the month of November, the Customs House Museum & Cultural Center put a special focus on LEGO creativity in the Family Art Studio. This year marked the 90th birthday of The LEGO Group, which started as a humble wooden toy factory in 1932 by Ole Kirk Kristiansen. (We posted an article all about LEGO this past October – read it here!)  

We also invited our Museum patrons to deck out our LEGO wall with their best ideas. Check out a sampling of their colorful creations:

Staff members and their families also got in on the LEGO action. Lots of great builds were on display in Ms. Sue’s Inspiration Tower all November long.

Last Saturday, everyone got the opportunity to play with LEGO in a different way. Museum visitors had the opportunity to print with LEGO bricks and paint. Instead of building structures with the bricks, they built awesome art pieces with paint and their imagination. This fun craft would be easy to enjoy at home, as well.  

Thank you all for bringing your creativity to the Museum and helping to make the Family Art Studio an inspiring place to be!
