A hands-on exhibition that provides an extraordinary opportunity for both little and big kids to discover the world of castle-building.

Hear ye, hear ye! Come one, come all to Science World and experience LEGO® Castle Adventure, a hands-on exhibition that provides an extraordinary opportunity for kids (including big ones!) to discover the world of castle-building using one of the greatest building materials of all time: LEGO® bricks.
Explore the LEGO Kingdom’s royal castle, sit in their majesties’ LEGO thrones, and admire a LEGO suit of armour. After that, tour the castle grounds and learn about day-to-day castle life. You’ll be able to dress up as princes, princesses, knights or dragons; climb a lookout tower; and don suspender-style horses to “joust” with foam-rubber lances.
And that’s not all! You can even test out castle defences with . . . a catapult! That’s right. By using a computer simulation program and a model catapult, you’ll be able to virtually build and test castle walls and learn through trial and error the most durable ways to protect a fortress.
At LEGO Castle Adventure, builders of all ages and skill levels will construct castles, learn about real-world fortresses, and discover castle-building secrets. Visitors will have the chance to explore various themes, including:
- The importance of planning in constructing successful castles
- Which part of a castle is built for which purpose
- What it takes to build and run a castle
- Inspiring real-life castles
