New LEGO® pop-up shop opens at the Natural History Museum in London

LEGO® fans of all ages are invited to shop, build and play in an exciting new LEGO® pop-up shop, now open at no other than London’s iconic Natural History Museum. 

So much more than a store, the pop-up space features large scale LEGO models, interactive building experiences, weekly challenges and free giveaways. The weekly building challenges will have new themes each week and visitors will be in with the chance of winning epic prizes when they upload photos of their creations to LEGO.com.

The whole family can get involved with a range of creative and educational products suitable for children, preschoolers and grown-ups to enjoy. Visitors can purchase LEGO products that reflect themes of the Museum, such as nature, space and art. 

Highlight products include Wild Animal Rescue Missions, an app-driven playset that will take children on exciting wildlife missions, and the Wild Animals of the Ocean set, which takes pre-schoolers to the depths of the ocean where they can meet sea creatures and develop a passion for marine life. Kids, adults and grandparents can enjoy endless hours of fun and nostalgia as they recreate LEGO builds from across the years with the brand new 90 Years of Play set.

Products designed especially for grown-ups are available too, such as the Flower Bouquet, a set that invites nature fans to create their own botanical display featuring daisies, roses and asters in a variety of colours. The set includes elements made from sustainable materials.

Carla Treasure, Buyer for the Natural History Museum shop, said: ‘We are thrilled to celebrate with the LEGO Group  and host this fun and engaging pop-up for Museum visitors and LEGO fans of any age. We’re sure visitors will love checking out the shop and we can’t wait to see their creations.’

The pop-up shop will be open until 18 September 2022.
