Children and adult fans of Lego will be pleased to hear that the Brussels Lego discovery centre is set to open on 24 June, Le Soir reported.
The new discovery centre will be situated at the canal-side shopping centre Docks Bruxsel in Schaerbeek.
The site will offer an immersive experience in the Lego universe, with an indoor adventure space of over 3,000 m² to allow visitors to move from one world to the next.
The Lego centre will be spread over 12 areas including a park for toddlers with a giant dinosaur, a mini-world that celebrates Belgian buildings and monuments, virtual reality play areas, a train journey and workshops where people can create their own mini-figures.
Not least, there will be a workshop where people, both young and old, can tinker around with Lego bricks, supervised by Playmakers who can give constriction tips to kids.
There will be 4D adventures in a cinema equipped with its own weather system. And anyone in need can go for a snack or a drink at the LEGO Café at the end of the visit.
Building LEGO constructions is at the heart of what the Lego project is all about. A Lego site wouldn’t be complete without a Master Builder, whose mission is to supervise children to help them build whatever they want.
Lego came to life in 1932 when it was founded in Denmark by Ole Kirk Kristiansen. A family-owned business, it passed from father to son and is now owned by owned by Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, a grandchild of the founder.
A Lego discovery centre was first built in Denmark, but with the popularity of the toys the fun-parks spread to Germany, Japan and the US. The attraction in Brussels will be operated by the British Merlin Group.
