As the All Saints’ Day holidays approach, a delightful exhibition has just opened at the Town Hall of the 17th arrondissement of Paris, to the delight of young and old.

A fun, family and educational exhibition

The “Lego – The Conquest of Space” exhibition opened on October 17 at the Town Hall of the 17th arrondissement of Paris, and will last until November 26 (with a competition for the youngest).

During the next school holidays, it will notably accommodate more than 500 children from leisure centers, but is accessible free of charge to all, young and old, during Town Hall opening hours, during the week and on Saturday mornings.

From Jules Verne’s shell to the cislunar station Gateway from the program Artemispassing by asteroid B 612 from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s Little Prince, the first steps on the Moon of Tintin and of Neil Armstrongthere spaceship or even… astronauts’ diapers.

It’s a lovely story of man in space, dreamed and proven, which is told through collector’s items and original creations, sometimes monumental, assembled in Lego ; in total, the exhibition brings together around a million bricks!

This is the second time that the Town Hall of the 17th arrondissement has hosted a Lego exhibition, created by the Epicure Studio agency, after the one which was dedicated to around twenty fables by La Fontaine, in March-April 2021.
