Regular readers of the Rambling Brick know full well that I am interested in the history of there LEGO Group, and of the bricks we build with. Therefore, you can only imagine how excited I was to hear about a new initiative from the LEGO House: Live, Online Tours of the History Collection:
Here is the press release:
Many LEGO® fans from all over the world are not able to visit LEGO House due to the restrictions of the COVID-19 outbreak.
For all of you we are now opening up the History Collection in the basement of LEGO House to invite you to join the free LEGO House Live Tours where we introduce you to the history of the LEGO Group.
The LEGO Group started back in 1932 and its history is full of stories and play. To provide an in-depth live tour we offer 5 individual tours based on 5 important chapters of the LEGO Group’s history. The tour will be hosted by a LEGO historian, who is an expert in LEGO history, and you will be able to ask questions during the session via Live Chat. The tour guide will answer your questions live.
We offer several sessions per tour. There are different timings of the sessions to cater for the different time zones you live in. Please be aware that we operate in Billund time (CET). We kindly ask you to convert the timing to your time zone.
Duration of each tour is 60 minutes. It’s free to participate but registration prior to the event is required.
