A glimpse inside the new Lego house in Denmark

After seven years in the pipeline, Lego has finally opened its impressive flagship house in Billund, Denmark.

The striking 130,000-square-foot building consists of 21 white bricks stacked on top of each other and its facade is covered with tiles, giving the illusion that the whole building is made of Lego.

Inside there are dozens of exhibits crafted from 25 million Lego bricks, including giant trees and a brigade of dinosaurs.

To keep children and Lego-loving adults occupied, there are four play zones, three restaurants and a brick-laden gift shop. 

It has taken four years to build the Lego house, following several years of planning and consultation.

A grand event celebrating its opening on September 28 was attended by the Danish royal family, the building’s celebrated architect, Bjarke Ingels and Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, the third generation head of Lego. Scroll down for a glimpse inside the wacky building which promises hours of brick-building fun…
