Lego Americana Roadshow


Imagination is the essence of discovery, and at the Boise Towne Square Mall, Boise children will get a chance to discover historic American landmarks with one of the most imaginaive toys out there: Legos. The Lego Americana Roadshow exhibit Building Across America is in its third year of touring the country and features 10 large-scale models of prominent national landmarks like the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, U.S. Capitol, White House and Statue of Liberty. The material used to build them may be Legos, but these modelers aren't kidding around: the Capitol Building is 25 feet 7 inches long and took eight builders 1,700 hours to create. Kid-friendly activities keep the excitement going throughout the month, including a Brick Play Area, build-your-own Independence Hall workshop (July 15-16) and scavenger hunt.
