Lego Americana Roadshow

Is it really only Tuesday? I kept having to remind myself yesterday that it was Monday because it felt like we were well into the week already.

One of my local malls is hosting the Lego Americana Roadshow which is a traveling showcase by Lego that features American historical landmarks made entirely out of Legos! Pretty cool and when seen in person it’s crazy to think that a team actually built these out of Legos. My friend and I were talking about how imaginative you have to be to build these creations and figure out how to build them to look like…whatever it is you want them to look like. Apparently there is such a job as a “Lego Master”. You learn new things every day! So below I have some pictures of the awesome creations we saw and guess what? I have a new YouTube video so you can follow me along!

Lego Americana Roadshow - Old North Church

First up, Old North Church – the site of the famous Paul Revere signal during the American Revolution. For all my American readers, you may remember the saying “One if by land, two if by sea”. For my non-American readers who may have no idea what I’m talking about, it was a signal to let the revolutionaries know whether the British were coming by land or by sea. Lanterns were brought to the steeple of the church to give the signal. And there goes my history lesson of the day!

Lego Americana Roadshow - Liberty Bell

Next, The Liberty Bell. I love how you can really see all the Legos it took to recreate this bell! I believe my friend read on the sign that this Lego bell is built on a 1:1 ratio with the real Bell.

Lego Americana Roadshow - Statue of Liberty
The Statue of Liberty – so much detail!

Lego Americana Roadshow - Washington Monument
This model of the Washington Monument is so tall!

Lego Americana Roadshow - Independence Hall
Lego Americana Roadshow - Independence Hall Clock
I love the clock on this model of Independence Hall.

Lego Americana Roadshow - White House
I imagine little Lego people living inside The White House!

Lego Americana Roadshow - Lincoln Memorial
Lego Americana Roadshow - Lincoln Memorial 1
I love that there are a ton of Pennies inside the Lincoln Memorial, which is probably the most iconic and most visited memorial in Washington DC. I don’t know that for sure, but I’m guessing based on my experiences visiting DC.

Lego Americana Roadshow - Capitol Building 2
The grand finale piece is the Capitol Building. The detail on this model is out of this world. It is so intricately done even down to the lamp posts and the relief sculptures in the architecture. Truly Incredible!

And of course, my YouTube video!

I hope you all enjoy the photos and video!

If you live in the New Jersey area, I believe the Lego Americana Roadshow will be at the Bridgewater Commons Mall for the rest of this week. I definitely recommend checking it out!
