LEGO exhibit

The Mayborn Museum Complex in Waco is hosting a LEGO Castle exhibit over the summer. A sweet friend suggested we meet there and my boys threatened to disown me if I said no.

A castle siege. I love the orange boiling oil being poured down the wall onto the attackers.

This was a scene designed and built by a thirteen year old boy. Can you see the admiration in The Professor's eyes?

LEGO Stained Glass made with translucent pieces           A LEGO portrait made with flat pieces.
There were areas to learn about real knights and castles and even a jousting arena. Cool doesn't even begin to describe it!


  1. We visited the Mayborn on the way home from our vacation. We LOVED that exhibit. I really liked that the girls enjoyed it as much as the boys.

  2. Amazing!! I can't wait to show these pictures to my boys!

  3. A friend and I were just talking about this. We've heard about it since last May and still haven't had the chance to get down there. From you pictures...we may have to add this to our summer bucket list.

  4. Patty,

    The LEGO exhibit along with the rest of the museum is TOTALLY worth the drive!

  5. Oh, BTW... KC is so right! There was so much for the girls to enjoy too inside the exhibit and the rest of the museum too!

  6. Okay, really, my son would pass out! I'm going to look into this! thanks.

  7. That was great! Wish we could see it.

  8. Oh my gosh.
    I've never seen anything like that before.
