As part of its current exhibit, Olympus: The Greco-Roman Collections of Berlin, the WAG is showing off replicas of an ancient Greek theatre, a chariot race, a Roman villa, and the Parthenon — all built by the Manitoba Lego Users Group.

On Sunday, June 21, from 1:30 p.m. until 4 p.m., the WAG is hosting a special kids' launch to celebrate the unveiling of the Lego pieces. The even will include hands-on activities for families and youth and it's free for kids under age 12.

Practice your building skills in a "brickstorming" workshop, enjoy Lego-inspired movies in the Muriel Richardson Auditorium, and meet members of the Manitoba Lego Users Group and view displays of their past and present work.
