One of the husband's keenest interests is architecture, which is why we waited until now to go. I knew he would have some anecdotes and insights into the construction design and geography of the buildings, and he did. We wanted to go together. He was very impressed with the buildings, which included a favorite of his, Falling Waters by Frank Lloyd Wright. My favorite moment of the trip was at the end when Zippy looked longingly at the bins of LEGOs (and a whole lot of kids playing with them). I turned to her and said, "You know, you are homeschooled. We could come back tomorrow or Wednesday and a lot of these kids would be in school." Her eyes got wide as saucers. I imagine that going to the museum will definitely be added to the incentive sheet.
I would highly recommend this exhibit if it comes to a city near you. If you are going to be in the Detroit Metro Area, of course, I would recommend The Henry Ford. LEGO Architecture runs through February 24, 2013, and is free with museum ticket purchase.
