Two Awesome New Exhibits for NYC Kids: Shipwreck! and the Art of the Brick
A few weeks back I highlighted Shipwreck! Pirates & Treasure and The Art of the Brick in my post about the best museum exhibits for kids opening this summer. Now that they're both on view at Discovery Times Square, I decided to check them out with my eight-year-old son. We were so impressed and surprised by what we saw, I wanted to share our experience,
While we definitely enjoyed both exhibits, my favorite was the awe-inspiring Art of the Brick, an amazing collection of statues made out of Legos by Nathan Sawaya. As I suspected, my pirate-obsessed son preferred Shipwreck!, an interactive nautical history lesson that includes lots of info about plunderers and their booty. Since the exhibits are on display through January in the same place, it's easy to see both in one day. Bonus: If you buy a combo ticket to both installations, you save money, too.
