Drone footage of LEGO House, Denmark’s new LEGO visitor center

Fly over LEGO House, the incredible new LEGO visitor center in Billund, Denmark, the city where LEGO bricks were first invented. LEGO recently unveiled this silent drone footage of their 12,000 m2 (129,167 sq ft) building in anticipation of its opening on September 28, 2017.

The building, designed by architect Bjarke Ingels, features a giant white LEGO brick—those eight studs are skylights—stacked on top of multiple white brick blocks that will house three eateries, a LEGO store, a Masterpiece Gallery, a History Collection, and other experience zones. Nine multicolor terraces will expand the play spaces.

LEGO House will also be the only place you can find the corresponding 744-piece, 197-step architecture kit (21037) of the superstructure.

LEGO has more videos about their new building on YouTube, including the three videos below: The making of LEGO House, LEGO Tree of Creativity, “one of the world’s biggest – and most technically complicated LEGO models ever built,” and these LEGO dinosaurs, “the result of talented LEGO fans and LEGO designers collaborating.”

Tickets for the experience can be bought at LEGOHouse.com.
