The LEGO American Roadshow - Building Across America is on display at Alderwood Mall.

They have 10 very large architectural models throughout the mall of important American historical buildings and icons - all made of Legos.

The single display of the Capitol Building took 1700 hours to construct. The Washington Memorial is very tall. Inside the Lincoln and Jefferson memorial are figures of the presidents in close detail.

There are smaller displays with interesting “Easter Eggs” (surprise twists) segments where adults will enjoy searching for out of place characters and humorous anecdotes in the model signage and displays that include references to movies and comics.

There are free hands on activities and interactive experiences about American History.

You can pick up a free poster if you answer questions about the 10 architectural models on a work sheet available throughout the mall and turn the sheet into the LEGO Store at the mall.

This is a good activity for families to discuss Americana and learn something about American history in an entertaining way.
