    (Norfolk, VA) –The Hampton Roads Naval Museum (HRNM) is proud to announce their 8th Annual Brick by Brick Lego® Shipbuilding Event on Saturday, February 2, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Decker Half Moone Cruise and Celebration Center. This FREE program invites LEGO® shipbuilders of all ages to build and share their creations with fellow enthusiasts and compete for fabulous prizes on one exciting day!

    This popular signature event is presented in partnership with the Hampton Roads Naval Historical Foundation. Participants can build a variety of kits ranging from easy to expert, and participate in other activities, as well. Children and adults alike can also bring their pre-constructed LEGO® ships to enter in a contest prior to 2 p.m. on February 2nd. There are two separate contests: one for those who make ships at HRNM, and one for those who built their ships at home. HRNM will award prizes for five age-based categories in each competition, along with our fan favorite, voted on by YOU!

    This FREE family event features:

    -STEM-based design plans (easy to expert) to build ships from the keel up in our shipyard of 200+ dry docks;
    -Hands-on robotic demonstrations and professional LEGO display models;
    -Free play areas for all ages (LEGOs and Duplos);
    -Crafts for all ages;
    -A sensory (quieter space) room for alternative-need children.
