LEGO Model of the Smithsonian Castle

LEGO Model of the Smithsonian Castle

August 5, 2013 – August 5, 2014

Museum: Smithsonian Castle

Location: Children's Room, South Entrance

This Smithsonian Castle model, constructed of more than 45,000 LEGO® bricks, was built to celebrate the origins of the Smithsonian's National Zoological Park. It is displayed in the Children's Room in the spirit of the room’s early use as a museum designed to inspire wonder in children. While the Castle model is built to scale, the Mall landscape and the animals situated on it are imaginatively depicted.
