For LEGO fans, it’s been a long wait but LEGO’s Piece of Peace world tour is finally here in Singapore! The opening ceremony took place on Thursday (27 July) morning at the Fort Canning Arts Centre.
The Piece of Peace exhibition sees a total of 44 LEGO replicas of UNESCO world heritage sites made with a total of nearly half a million LEGO bricks and built in a collective time of six man-years.
Guest-of-honour and Minister for Culture, Community and Youth, Ms Grace Fu, later unveiled the latest LEGO replica exhibit of the Singapore Botanic Gardens, which was built in commemoration of ASEAN’s 50th anniversary.
Fu, who is also the chairman for the Singapore National Commission for UNESCO, said in her opening address that she hopes the exhibition will “help to draw more visitors to the rest of ASEAN” as the region “offers an enormous richness of attractions”.
Other than the UNESCO heritage sites exhibition (see slideshow), visitors can also build their own Singapore-inspired creation using white LEGO bricks. There is also a play zone where kids can role-play as police officers, and even play in their own ‘kitchen’.
The Piece of Peace world tour runs from 27 July to 3 September at the Fort Canning Arts Centre from 10am to 9pm on Mondays to Thursdays, and from 10am to 12 midnight on Fridays, weekends and public holidays.
Ticket prices start from $13. Only 1,800 visitors will be permitted per day. More information can be found on their official website.
