The Denver Zoo Welcomes New - LEGO Animals!

The Denver Zoo is about to get some new guests - 

An award winning traveling Lego exhibit that will include 35+ life sized (in some cases, larger than) Lego sculptures, will be visiting the Denver Zoo. “Nature Connects, Art with LEGO® Bricks,” by Sean Kenney will be on display from August 7th to November 1st.

Be prepared to see a 400lb bee and a hummingbird with an 8' wingspan. As this exhibit will overlap Halloween, you can be sure to also see some Lego bats and spiders too.

  1. Thanks to the staff at this place for making our event so enjoyable and if I ever get married. I know where to go! Great job all of you. Price was not too bad, considering the quality of food and beverages. Everything at this Los Angeles event space was excellent.
