  • LEGO® Design Activity led by Bricks & Minifigs Grand Rapids: Build a LEGO® Treasure Map
    Arr, Matey! Join us for a pirate’s adventure as we build our own treasure maps out of LEGO® bricks. Imagine your perfect treasure location and create a map that shows off where you’d bury the pirate’s gold! Throughout the building process, we will explore topography and map symbols. Each participant can build a 16 x 16 treasure map.

All activities are free with museum admission. Registration is not required.
