Watch as LEGO Master and architect Adam Reed Tucker unveils his latest large-scale masterpiece: the Palace of Fine Arts building from the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition. After the World’s Fair, the Fine Arts building became home to the Field Columbian Museum and finally, after significant renovation, the Museum of Science and Industry. A result of more than 225 build hours and 18,500 LEGO pieces, this is one work of imagination you won’t want to miss.

Free with general admission/membership.
