What you Need to Know



Since 2005, the North Carolina LEGO Users Group has put on LEGO-palooza in partnership with Morehead Planetarium & Science Center.

Intricate LEGO exhibits are displayed throughout the Morehead building for a weekend – scenes of outer space, trains, amusement parks, city landmarks and more! LEGO-palooza will also have LEGO activities for kids to explore their own creativity and innovation, food trucks, and more. 

This event is recommended for ages 6 and older, but younger children are welcome to attend.

This event will not be held in early 2020 because of ongoing renavations at Morehead. Please check back later for additional details.
