Join us at the LEGO Animals Assembled exhibit on Saturday and Sunday, July 20 and 21 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm for some fun LEGO-themed activities. Build on a baseplate for our LEGO art wall, work a LEGO puzzle, and more!
If you’re wondering how long it takes to build a life-size zebra or juvenile giraffe entirely from LEGO bricks, then look no further than the Houston Zoo. Did you know that there are only seven LEGO Master Builders in the United States, and one of them spent 27 hours to create the giraffe you can see in Animals Assembled Presented by Fiesta?
This exhibit will be here all summer long, so if you have a LEGO aficionado in your household, this is one experience you won’t want to miss!
