To celebrate the release of the first ever sustainable LEGO® elements, the LEGO Group have joined forces with the Natural History Museum in London. A special event will help visitors to explore nature through play by joining sustainable superhero Plantus Maximus to learn more about the natural world through fun and interactive LEGO® brick-building experiences. You’ll be able to create your own sustainable superhero with the new plant-based LEGO elements and other LEGO bricks. Plus help to build a wildlife-friendly city using LEGO bricks. The event takes place at the beginning of August and is free to attend. Book your place in the LEGO Exploring Nature Through Play on the Natural History Museum website now.
LEGO® Build: Create Sustainable Superheroes and their Habitat with Plantus Maximus
Budding builders will be challenged to combine the new plant elements with existing LEGO bricks to build their own sustainable superhero Plantus Maximus and help create a natural habitat fit for Plantus Maximus and his friends.
Through the play sessions, kids and families will learn about how the new LEGO botanical elements – including trees, leaves and bushes – are made from a plastic produced using sustainably sourced sugarcane.
The event is free. Online booking is essential and will be available soon.
Note: There is a maximum number of five tickets per transaction. We would like to optimise the number of children that can participate in these sessions. Therefore, the number of adults required for each group of children are as follows:
- For 1 child, 1 adult required.
- For 2-3 children, 1 adult required, maximum 2 adults.
Anything outside of these guidelines can be discussed with a member of our ticketing team on +44 (0)20 7942 5725.
The Natural History Museum Quest with Plantus Maximus
Embark on a special adventure around the Museum with Plantus Maximus. On this quest you’ll need to help Plantus Maximus learn more about the environment and how you can help the natural world.
At the end you can put together what you’ve discovered and help build your own LEGO wildlife-friendly city.
Pick up a quest from Hintze Hall. The event is free and will take approximately one hour. Places may be restricted and timed sessions may be in operation.
The Natural History Museum Quest with Plantus Maximus is designed for children aged 6+, but explorers under 6 are welcome to help out.
