 We’ve Made LEGO® History!


We’ve taken LEGO® lovers and turned them into beelievers! As part of a unique legacy fundraising project – The Big Build – we’ve made our goal of building Canada’s largest LEGO® Mosaic Wall.

This project used over 303,000 LEGO® bricks on over 8,100 LEGO® panels to create a gigantic 20-foot-wide by 10-foot-high mosaic. Thanks to Nova Scotia artist Holly Carr who designed and created the image and Canada’s only certified LEGO® builder Robin Sather who worked extensively to give us the foundation to make it happen.

The Discovery Centre would like to thank Lindsay Construction, our lead sponsor, without whom this project would not have happened. As well, big thanks to Jennifer Parkhill for enabling us to bring The Big Build to the children at the IWK Health Centre.  The Wall would not have been built without our incredible staff, NovaLUG and community volunteers, our members and visitors from around the world.

The LEGO® Mosaic Wall will be moved to the New Discovery Centre and will live on as a legacy to the amazing community which has enabled us to build not just the Wall but this incredible new facility as well.

From the bottom of our hive – thank you to everyone who was part of The Big Build.
