Lego breaks record

The ever-popular Lego exhibit is breaking records this year. The sixth annual show at the Sidney Museum saw more than 5,500 visitors peer at the classic building toy.

That’s a record number for January and February at the musuem, but director Peter Garnham hopes to hit the 10,000 mark by the end of March when the exhibit finishes.

“The response has been incredible and the level of excitement from children makes the exhibit so worthwhile,” Garnham said.

This year more than 250 Lego models from pirates to Star Wars, cranes to castles are on display.

The Tower Bridge of London — at nearly four feet long — is the feature exhibit. The museum is located near the corner of Beacon Avenue and Fourth Street in Sidney. Admission is free; donations are welcome.
