LEGO Artist, Nathan Sawaya's "Art of the Brick" LEGO Art Exhibit Returns to Boston for a Limited Time - A Must See for Kids and Adults! (Review) #BostonBrick

Disclosure: I was provided with complimentary tickets to check out to the exhibit in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.




Skip the long checkout lines or stress trying to find a parking spot at the mall this weekend, and head over to Newbury Street in Boston to take in the "Art of the Brick," which opened last week at 343 Newbury St., and features over 90 LEGO builds that will amaze your, from renowned contemporary artist/LEGO artist extraordinaire, Nathan Sawaya.


I have been to countless LEGO fests and events, but have never seen anything like I saw the other day when I attended press night with my family. 

Even my youngest daughter who is big into LEGO building was amazed at what Nathan Sawaya was able to build out of LEGO pieces.  Just look at some of our favorites from our night at the Art of the Brick exhibit, open now through April 23, 2023...

Don't these look spectacular?  The photos really don't do the exhibit justice. This is one exhibit you really want to see in person for yourself.  With 3 floors of LEGO sculptures and art to take in, this exhibit makes for a great day in the city with your whole family. And, tomorrow they are turning on the lights at Faneuil Hall, where the previous exhibit, which sold out, was held years ago.  

With each build there is a story to read about the art piece itself, as well as details just how many LEGO pieces went into putting that particular sculpture or art piece together. It really is fascinating to read and look at the intricate details of each piece as you walk from LEGO build to the next. There is even an build on the third floor that you can sit on and take photos with.  

And, before you leave, make sure you take a seat on the bench next to this LEGO build and snap a few selfies to share with friends and family on social media, and to keep to remember your one of a kind experience at the Art of the Brick LEGO exhibit in Boston.

This particular LEGO sculpture is made up of 11,014 LEGO bricks -- crazy, huh?!

Even though we went a couple days ago, my girls are already asking to go back, as they want to see the exhibit again.  

Tickets prices start at $28 for adults, and $24 for kids. For more information and to order your timed tickets, visit The exhibit is open Sunday through Thursdays, 10AM -6PM (last ticket time is 5PM) and Friday and Saturday, 10AM-8PM (last ticket time is 7PM).

It takes about 30-60 minutes to walk through the three floors, but expect to spend more time if you want to stop and read each and every information card next to each piece.

If you have little ones, there is a LEGO building area on the third floor that they will have wanting to stay a little longer to put their brick building skills to the test, as they will be inspired like my girls were, to see what they can build.

And, before you leave, make sure to checkout their mini pop up shop featuring fun souvenirs and LEGO inspired gifts to remember your visit to this one of a kind LEGO art exhibit.
