Children’s Museum of Houston

On February 25 and 26, 2017, members of TexLUG-Houston worked together to provide a large display at the Children’s Museum of Houston.  The LEGO(R) models included a classic space layout, a town and train area (incorporating an elevated train track), the USS Constitution, BB-8 from Star Wars Episode VII, and much more.

Thousands of kids and family visited the museum each day.  Young and old were all fascinated by the overall size of the display, by the intricate details, and by the surprises throughout.  Who would have expected to see Disco Batman sitting on the lawn with a moose?

TexLUG-Houston usually displays at the Children’s Museum two or three times a year.  Check out our Events page to see where we will be next.  For more information about the museum, you can visit their website at

A few photos of the display can be found below.  For many more photos, you can view members’ Flickr albums here and here .  Participation included (17) AFOLs and (3) TFOLs;  public attendance was about 6,500 total for the two days.

We don’t have a good answer to the question, “How many parts is all this?” .. but we do know that the amount of smiles this weekend was even greater.
