Lego Exhibit @ Reading Public Museum

13 Feb

It seems as though all of Berks County has been buzzing about the opening of the Lego Exhibit. At it’s busiest times the Reading Public Museum has been packed, with a line out the door to see the Lego’s ! We were finally able to get in at a less busy time and enjoy what this exhibit has to offer.

Location: Reading Public Museum: 500 Museum Road Reading PA 19611

Admission: there are several different admission rates for the Reading Museum

Adult: $10

There are also passes available through many of the Berks County Libraries

Currently many are checked out but you can be put on a waiting list !

Accessibility: The Museum is handicapped accessible which also means it is stroller accessible !

This being said please keep in mind that there may also be a great number of people there making navigating a stroller difficult.

*There is an elevator but be prepared to wait in line !

*The Lego Exhibit is on the third floor

*I would recommend a baby carrier if you need one and to leave the stroller in the car.

Age: The Lego exhibit and the Reading Public Museum have something for all ages. I would say this exhibit is great for children who are walking all the way through adulthood.

Target age perhaps being 2-10.

There are areas throughout the exhibit that are geared towards different ages

These are the extra large Lego blocks that the little ones loved building with on the floor !

Try not to worry too much about small pieces, the museum has the Lego building tables with smaller pieces in its own special area ! this table had only the age appropriate blocks.

They also have some computer interactive stations and dress up stations !

Depending on the crowds and the age of your children you could spend a great deal of time just in the Lego Exhibit !  We were in that exhibit for the better part of a hour

Timing: Trying to get to this exhibit without a huge crowd is a must ! We went right at lunch time on Saturday and it wasn’t bad but an hour later it was pretty crowded. If you can make it during the week I would highly recommend it. It is also possible for groups to arrange a special time where they would exclusivity visit the museum.

While your there don’t forget about the rest of the museum !

Every exhibit has it’s own interactive stations and the kids loved it

    I would love to have a Lego Exhibit or even the store here in Charleston. I was a big fan of the toy when I was child and they had nothing like the models and kits they sell today. I’m sure my 21-month-old son, when he is older, will also fall in love with legos.
