To explore Lego art at Lauritzen Gardens in Omaha, Nebraska tends to bring out the kid in almost everyone. Lego blocks and children have been together since 1949 when they were first created. The grandchild of the founder, Kirk Kristiansen is the current owner of this delightful wonderland.
A Living Fantasy
Many people cannot believe that the breathtaking pieces displayed and made by the brilliant artist are actually Lego blocks. The constructivist brought nature and fantasy together and created an aura that can be found nowhere else in a living yard such as in Omaha, Nebraska, at the Lauritzen Gardens.

Named “Toy of the Century” twice, it is the Lego company’s traditional brick that kids play with in the present day. Visiting the Gardens brings excitement and fun to all ages of people, encouraging play. The magnificent displays of thousands of blocks built into wondrous animals, people, insects and more, simply baffle onlookers.
