Ever seen a Tyrannosaurus Rex made from 80,000 LEGO® bricks? Now's your chance! Contemporary artist Nathan Sawaya uses thousands of LEGO — the beloved building blocks of your childhood — to create original artworks and reimagined versions of famous masterpieces, such as the Venus de Milo sculpture and Van Gogh's "Starry Night." The exhibit also showcases a collection of LEGO-infused, hyper-realistic photography from Sawaya's collaboration with award-winning photographer Dean West.

After touring the exhibition, guests of all ages can put their own LEGO skills to work at building challenges and interactive play!


DATES: Aug. 14, 2020–Jan. 3, 2021

Have you ever wondered what your dog is thinking? This fun, interactive glimpse into the world of man's (and woman's!) best friend might help you figure it out! The exhibition highlights the extraordinary ways dogs see, hear and smell their surroundings and explores the unique bond between humans and canines. Listen to hidden sounds that dogs can hear but humans can’t, excavate replicas of fossils to determine if they belong to wolves or dogs, walk a dog through a virtual neighborhood to understand how pets strengthen the community and test your pop-culture knowledge during a trivia game of “Jeopawdy!”

This exhibition will give you a better understanding of what lies at the heart of one of the most successful interspecies partnerships of all time.



DATES: June 23–Dec. 31, 2020

A new trove of remarkably preserved fossils found by paleontologists from the Denver Museum of Nature & Science near Colorado Springs paints a vivid picture of how Earth recovered after the devastating asteroid impact that wiped out the dinosaurs 66 million years ago. See some of the very best fossils from the site at a brand-new bilingual pop-up exhibit to bring the discovery to life.
