The Reading Public Museum is asking visitors “What Will You Build?” in the latest Travel Adventure exhibition. Travel Adventure invites children and their families to use LEGO bricks to create their own imaginary dream machines capable of taking them to some fantastic destinations. The exhibition is now open to the public through Labor Day, September 2 , 2019.
There are many different ways to travel where you need to go and in Travel Adventure, visitors are invited to create vehicles capable of flying, driving, and floating – or all three! To go on a travel adventure to exotic locations, children are asked to think creatively, plan, and build vehicles to move through all kinds of terrain – mountains, oceans, jungles, deserts, and more.
Dioramas featuring Florida, Hawaii, Paris, and San Francisco will help serve as inspiration for creating vehicles with wheels, wing, masts, and more. Children can also have their photo taken behind the wheel of a kid-size racecar created entirely out of LEGO DUPLO bricks.
Travel Adventure is the follow-up to Castle Adventure, which the Reading Public Museum hosted in 2013. John Graydon Smith, The Museum’s Director and CEO stated “After the immense popularity of Castle Adventure, which also featured LEGO bricks, hosting Travel Adventure this summer was an obvious fit for our audience.
With everyone focused on summer travel and activities for families, what better way to learn and have fun than by visiting The Museum and exploring the world through imagination!”
Travel Adventure was created by The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. The exbit is open everyday, June 13, 2019 through September 2, 2019 in the World Cultures Gallery.
