Calling all LEGO® fans and families! The Bowes Museum is THE place to be this Summer as we turn the Museum into a LEGO® wonderland, with 15 of our most loved objects including the Silver Swan recreated by Brick This’ Steve Mayes and you can have a go at making them too!


Then let your imagination go wild in our LEGO® Creation Station where you can take inspiration from your own collections to build your own Museum of treasures.
