After being closed for several months, due to the pandemic, LEGO® House today announced their plan to reopen to the public on 22nd June 2020.
However, it is important to stress that the opening-up of LEGO House will be gradual and controlled and with a very limited number of guests every day to be able to keep the physical distance needed according to the health authorities.
Read on to find out how things have changed…
To visit LEGO House all guests must book a ticket in advance at www.LEGOHouse.com – this also applies to annual pass holders.
LEGO House has also made some important choices in terms of hygiene, so that guests can have a safe experience.
- We know that hand hygiene is the most important factor in terms of mitigating the spread of infection. Therefore, we are doing all that we can to ensure the best possible conditions for optimum hand hygiene in LEGO® House with many hand sanitiser dispensers available in all the zones. Moreover, we are encouraging all guests to take care of themselves and to ensure they maintain good hand hygiene.
- General cleaning at LEGO House has been greatly intensified to ensure that all surfaces which are frequently touched by many different people are thoroughly cleaned – for example handles, toilets, handrails, check-in stations, debit/credit card terminals etc. We have a permanent cleaning team, looking after the building both during and outside opening hours. In addition, we have introduced clear hygiene procedures for all LEGO House employees.
- We use a disinfectant product which is approved by Statens Serum Institut. All bacteria are killed within 2 minutes. All surfaces are sprayed with the disinfectant product to reduce the risk of infection.
- We have introduced a 72-hour quarantine for LEGO Bricks:All the brick containers are emptied and cleaned every day before being refilled with bricks which have been quarantined for 72 hours
Due to COVID-19, no loose bricks are sold in the store – which is why “Pick-a-Brick” and “Build a Minifigure” is temporarily unavailable.
We are well aware that many LEGO fans do not have the possibility to travel to Billund despite that LEGO House is now open. Therefore we’ll continue with our LEGO House @ Home streaming activities to both AFOLs and families.

Great news if you are able to travel to Billund in the coming months. At this point, a number of international networking events for AFOLs are yet to determine whether they will run in real life, or virtually.
This feels like the first step as the life of International AFOLs approaches a new normal.
