MUST SEE: 130,000 “Lego Lambeau” pieces highlighting the new exhibition | WFRV Local 5
GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – On a normal Packers game day, 80,000 fans gather in Lambeau Field, but when 1,500 hours are spent building over 130,000 Lego pieces, Lego Lambeau comes to life !
In 2013, a group of 15 students from the Milwaukee School of Engineering worked on building a Lego shape of Lambeau Field. After nearly 6 months of work, the project was finished.
For the past six years, Lego Lambeau has been on display at the Neville Public Museum, but it has a new location at the museum this spring and it will showcase a new exhibit.
‘Spectacular Science’ opens April 3 at the Neville Public Museum. There will be four sections of the exhibit that will include sprouts, bees, birds, and engineering wonders.
Lego Lambeau will highlight the engineering section of the exhibit and provide historical context.
“Between the combination of Lego and the fascination of Lambeau Field and football, it’s just a perfect piece,” says Beth Lemke, CEO of the Neville Public Museum. “In the engineering section in which he is located, we will have the opportunity to go a little deeper into the construction of Lambeau and the renovations that have taken place and that have taken place historically. We have a huge collection of photographs and a collection of films.
Thanks to a donation to the Neville Public Museum’s Foundation, Packers fans can have their own personalized Lego figure on display at the Lego Lambeau booths.
“The Neville Public Museum Foundation is our fundraising side. As a fundraising opportunity, for a donation, you can customize your own personal Lego and place it in a seat. You are on our Lego list, ”explains Lemke.
The reaction of visitors when they see the Lego Lambeau exhibit is as pleasant as ever to workers at the Neville Public Museum.
“Legos are universal. No one ever gives up their Legos, do they? These are things that are simply saved and handed down from generation to generation. So, there is a universal love of Legos. When people come in, they’re like ‘I can’t believe it’, ”says Lemke.
