Open through April 24, 2022, The Towers of Tomorrow is an interactive exhibit where you can be a LEGO® bricks architect for the day. It also features 20 meticulously built skyscrapers from around the world including the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building in Manhattan, Burj Kalifa in Dubai and Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, with details on how each was created, the hard work it took to bring to life and the LEGO® bricks the builder used to create the intricate buildings.

The architectural detail was built by Ryan McNaught, one of only 21 LEGO® certified professionals in the world. Yes, his job is what we all wanted to be when we grew up! Take a page from Ryan's book and discover your inner builder with over 200,000 loose LEGO® bricks, all ready for you to start building in special construction areas throughout the exhibit.

LEGO® bricks inspire everyone into becoming the best self they can be. The Perot Museum of Nature and Science utilizes this to empower the next generation of STEM professionals (no matter your age) and is committed to bringing in engaging opportunities that spark those "ah-ha" moments. For those wary about hands on bricks, LEGO® bricks are sanitized daily with similar technology used to disinfect airplanes. Hand sanitizing stations are around every corner. Masks are required for all while visiting the museum.
