LEGO fans rejoice! EMP’s new exhibition, Block by Block: Inventing Amazing Archetecture, is packed with creations guaranteed to both amaze and inspire. The exhibit, built by former LEGO Certified Professional Dan Parker, features stunning recreations of famous landmarks, including our very own Space Needle. Nearly 200,000 LEGO bricks went into creating these towering recreations of some of the world’s most iconic architecture. But don’t go thinking that Block by Block is a passive viewing experience. Try your hand at making your own LEGO creations and add them to the “Mini-Megalopolis” display in the gallery.
Take the Seattle Center Monorail to EMP Museum! The Monorail travels directly between downtown Seattle’s Westlake Center Mall (5th Avenue and Pine Street) and Seattle Center (home of EMP Museum, Pacific Science Center, the Space Needle and more). The Monorail is open daily and departs approximately every 10 minutes.
Visitor Tip: Bring your camera – EMP Museum was designed by Frank Gehry – the building’s exterior is incredible! It was designed to look like a smashed guitar. We love it! EMP is a museum that is dedicated to contemporary pop culture. The Monorail travels directly through the Museum.
