LEGO animal sculptures come to Brookfield Zoo, Chicago

Brookfield Zoo, Chicago is the latest location to get the Brick Safari exhibit, featuring impressive LEGO constructed animal models.

Over 40 new animals have arrived at Brookfield Zoo, Chicago, Illinois, USA – but they are built from LEGO pieces rather than joining the existing species at the zoological park. Species that are part of Brick Safari include a lion, giraffe, snow leopard, pangolin, alongside many other animals from around the world. Thanks to their brick based origins, these creatures are posing for the ideal photograph.

A giant LEGO constructed safari jeep and photo frame provide great photo opps for visitors wanting a memento of their LEGO animal spotting adventure. Besides marvelling at the LEGO constructions, visitors will be able to read interesting facts and poetry based on each animal during the self guided tour.

In addition to the usual entry free, Brick Safari admittance costs $5 for adults and $3 for children. The exhibit is open now and will be available until September 29.

More information can be found at the attraction’s website, where there is even a Brick Safari map to download in advance that will help with animal spotting.
