Built to let imagination run wild, the LEGO Discovery Center of Boston houses over 20 different interactive, immersive simulations to learn, grow, make friends and have a blast simultaneously! It’s impossible to miss the discovery center which sits on Somerville’s Assembly Row as just outside it stands a 20-foot-tall rainbow LEGO giraffe, suggesting the wild fun and new-heights of this next-gen LEGO center-it’s not your average playland.
While the LEGO Discovery Center of Boston sits upon a massive LEGO store with more options than most, the real entertainment kicks off on the second floor-home to the new discovery center which underwent a $12 million renovation and opens to the public May 25, 2023. As a hub for innovation, LEGO chose Boston for both the first-of-its-kind discovery center and upcoming headquarters transition. Ride up the magical LEGO elevators and immediately get building!
The very first interactive simulation sits right at your fingertips upon exiting the elevators. Kids and adults alike can partake in building their own LEGO friend to enter the magical LEGO kingdom with them. Pick from shoes, hairstyles, outfits and more! We made a cute 2-headed friend, so the sky seriously is the limit!
Let imagination run wild at the LEGO Discovery Center of Boston
Once you’re officially in the Discovery Center, you’ll find 10 carve-outs and areas designated to different skills-strength, imagination, patience, creativity, and more. Bringing it all together is an epic “Mini Boston” made entirely out of LEGO bricks! Find all of your favorite spots from TD Garden to Fenway Park in LEGO form, similar to this LEGO art display.
Spaceship Build and Scan
At this immersive takeoff guests can build their own spaceship out of LEGO bricks! Then scan your spaceship and in seconds it appears digitally on a massive video game screen. Hop from planet to planet and feel the ground shake beneath you as you land on mars!
Jump over crocodiles, loop over lava, and build your own car to drive through the desert!
Here little ones can go fishing for LEGO duckies or take a spin on a carnival carousel!
There are so many other imagination-charged adventures to explore. And the on-site LEGO Cafe is perfect for taking a break to recharge!
