If you can’t make it to Denmark anytime soon, the LEGO House is offering another set of tours for its underground History Collection.
Last time the LEGO House was forced to shutter its doors amidst the Coronavirus pandemic, five digital treks around the basement of the brick-centric complex were offered via a live stream with guests able to ask questions and have them answered by a LEGO Historian – a job title that many are sure to be jealous of.
Similar to those initial tours, five more will be held throughout the rest of the year with details on topics, booking and prices announced. This time the tours will require a fee of 50 DKK each, and you must book in advance if you wish to take part. All of them are held in English and take place on specific days with one session in the morning and another in the afternoon according to Denmark’s time zone.
You can find full details of the tours and how to book a slot on the LEGO House website, but here’s a rundown of what day the 60-minute online expeditions take place, and what the theme will be:
May 6 – The Beginning of the LEGO Group, 1942 – 1946
June 22 – The LEGO Group – Consolidating plastic, 1947 – 1961
August 30 – The LEGO Group – Expanding the LEGO System in Play, 1962 – 1978
October 11 – The LEGO Group – Introducing new ideas, 1979 – 2001
November 8 – The LEGO Group – Crisis and Turnaround, 2002 – 2020
If you’re able to visit the LEGO House in person, be aware there are currently health and safety measures in place per government guidance, and you can find out more here. Whilst you visit the home of the brick, why not pick up this year’s exclusive set – 40502 The Brick Moulding Machine.
