The Burj Khalifa, Even Better in Legos
The Burj Khalifa is a magnificent construction and engineering feat, even if much of it still is empty. The views of Dubai are stupendous, even if you feel a little cheated for not being able to go all the way to the top. But just outside of Detroit is an awesome replica even more incredible because it is constructed out of Legos.
The Henry Ford museum in Dearborn is one of the best history and cultural experiences everywhere. I first went almost 20 years ago and tonight I went to a reception that the Ford Motor Co. hosted for journalists and bloggers. Where else can you see the facade of a retro McDonald’s and climb aboard massive locomotives? But this iconic museum in Dearborn currently has a delicious Legos exhibit that replicates some of the world’s tallest buildings. The Lego version of the Burj, however, rocks. These are Legos at their finest.
Disclosure: Ford fronted the costs of my trip to Detroit for the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS).
