LEGO House opens its doors to the playing public [News]

LEGO House is the newly built LEGO Experience family attraction in the very centre of Billund, Denmark. We reported from LEGO House back in June when the exhibits were still being installed and there was still a lot of work to be done to the interior and exterior. LEGO House is now completely finished, the last bricks have been placed and tomorrow, 28 September doors will be opened to the public.

Among the speakers at the opening ceremony will be 3rd generation LEGO Group owner Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, LEGO House architect Bjarke Ingels, and HRH The Crown Princess Mary. After the ceremony, specific parts of LEGO House will be open to public, including the Square, the LEGO store and the coloured outdoor terraces but the Experience Zones, which require a ticket, are not available until 29 September. Livestream of highlights from the upcoming event will be available on Facebook.

LEGO House has been built with creativity, play and learning in mind and with more than 25 million bricks there is no shortage of LEGO available to build with inside. This is not just a look and see gallery, but roughly 20,000 square feet of LEGO experience that will engage young and old alike. On entering, there is open access to the roof terraces, the LEGO Store (complete with Pick-A-Brick and Pick-A-Model) and the three eateries.

Tickets for the experience zones cost 199DKK/US$31/£23 each for adults and children (free for accompanied children under 2) and are purchased online in advance for an arrival time but you can stay as long as you wish until the House closes at 8 pm.
