We are Blocks to Bricks, the world’s first and only museum celebrating the history of three- dimensional building toys.  

Our motto, “Constructing Imagination,” aligns with our goal, to provide an attraction to entertain, inform and further inspire the creators, designers and innovators of tomorrow.  

Blocks to Bricks Entrance Concept

Our interactive, 7,500 square foot, walk through art gallery inspired experience tells the story of three-dimensional building toys including LEGO®, Erector Sets®, Lincoln Logs® and many other construction toys from over the past century and beyond. Our 1,200 sq ft retail space offers rare and one of a kind collector's items that won’t be found in any other store. With our injection molding machine you can create your own brick in nearly any color you can imagine.  

At Blocks to Bricks you will be able to view the evolutionary development of construction toys while experiencing and interacting with the principles and elements of design that are behind their creation.

Blocks to Bricks is located at Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg, IL. The current goal is for a Spring 2018 opening. Help us get the final elements in place as we head into the final build out phases!

Risks and challenges

Every business faces risks when opening. Ours comes with a few rather unique obstacles in conjunction with those faced by “ordinary” businesses. In addition to building codes, village ordinances and construction challenges, we are also confronted with the task of providing a truly educational experience for visitors young and old.

With the experience in mind we are asking for your help, we have a number of areas throughout the museum that we need your help to get operational. These are unique to our museum and are being custom made by craftsman around the United States and Canada.

Some specific areas include the opening Theater Experience, Experience Pods in each section, a custom design and molding shop and the Vault Experience which will house some of the rarest building sets in the world.

With your help and support we can make Blocks to Bricks an educational and entertaining experience for everyone!
