Vers La Lune et Au-Delà LEGO® exhibition
A family space odyssey
Are your kids the kind of LEGO® fans whose creations are taking over their bedrooms? Then the Vers La Lune et Au-Delà exhibition at the Museum of Air and Space is for you.
For 6 months, the famous museum dedicated to the adventure of aviation and aeronautics invites you and your family on a journey through time featuring different scenes that have been recreated using those iconic little bricks. Over the 200-m² exhibition space, this event for all ages playfully recounts the heroic history of space exploration during the 20th century.
Bricks and figures are used to depict the key milestones in this incredible era starting with the first steps on the moon taken by Neil Armstrong and his crew, right up to the present day.
The exhibition featuring 1:1 scale “models” is divided into 3 sections. In the first part, visitors can admire iconic models from the LEGO® workshops with “collector” sets themed around aviation and the world of space. Don’t miss Concorde, a reduced-scale version of the two airliners on display to the public in the museum’s hangars. In the second part, follow the fascination the moon has exerted on the human imagination from Jules Verne to the Apollo missions and the Saturn V rocket, not forgetting the women of NASA. In the last section, fiction meets reality. The most recent spacecraft stands side by side with those imagined and dreamed of by artists such as Méliès, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and Hergé in their respective fields of cinema, literature and comics. During your visit, make sure you don’t miss the life-sized astronaut model made from LEGO®! Nice work.
The magic of the LEGO® universe in workshops
A classic toy, LEGO® has provided hours of entertainment for several generations of children around the world since its creation in Denmark in the 1950s. These famous little multicoloured bricks in various shapes and sizes have made it possible to create worlds as varied as they are imaginative and have starred in very successful animated films. They are a unique vector of discovery for children as they learn about the history of space exploration in a completely different way at the Musée de l’Air et de l’Espace in Le Bourget.
To accompany the exhibition, children are invited to participate in 6 different workshops where they can let their creativity run wild with LEGO®: a participatory scene, pixel art, observation and deduction games or free construction using LEGO® or DUPLO®. There is something to suit all ages and all tastes.
Celebrating the fascination for space travellers and following the exploits of the Alpha mission which involved the French astronaut Thomas Pesquet, children can get closer to the stars and parents can rediscover their inner child during this family outing, ideal for the school holidays.
