Use LEGO bricks to create your own imaginary dream-machines in this exhibit that combines play with creativity to improve children’s empirical thinking and physical dexterity skills. Produced by the Children's Museum of Indianapolis.

Create vehicles capable of flying, driving, and floating and to go on travel adventures to exotic locations. Children are challenged to think creatively, plan, and build vehicles that could move through all kinds of terrain – mountains, oceans, jungles and deserts. Dioramas featuring Florida, Hawaii, Paris and San Francisco inspire the creation of vehicles with wings, wheels and masts.

LEGO Travel Adventure features creations by LEGO Master Builders including recreations of the Wright Brothers Flight at Kitty Hawk, the driving of the Golden Spike in the Transcontinental Railroad, the building of the first Model T and a cruise liner.

Children can also have their photo taken behind the wheel of a kid-size race car created entirely out of LEGO DUPLO bricks. Age-appropriate build tables featuring parts and pieces from LEGO sets such as the LEGO City, LEGO Creator, LEGO Friends, and LEGO DUPLO lines are available in the exhibit for children to create their own vehicles.

The exhibition also includes a diorama featuring the Travel Adventure Vehicle (T.A.V.), an approximately 6-inch hybrid LEGO brick vehicle created specifically for the new exhibit by LEGO Master Builder Steve Gerling. In keeping with the theme of the exhibit to create vehicles capable of taking children and families anywhere their imagination can go, the T.A.V. is equipped with all of the right vehicle parts to travel in the air, across land, and under water.

The diorama includes several versions of the vehicle traveling across many terrains including taking off for a ride through the sky, over roads, up a mountain, and under water! In addition to the diorama, a full-size version of the T.A.V. is also available for families to go on an adventure together inside.

This event or venue can accommodate children with special needs.

The museum is an ADA facility.
