Somerville, MA – LEGOLAND Discovery Center Boston is undergoing a $12 million renovation, which is scheduled to begin on Sept. 6. This will be the world’s first renovation of a LEGOLAND Discovery Center to a LEGO Discovery Center along with a sister attraction in LEGOLAND Discovery Center Atlanta.
Set to be named LEGO Discovery Center, the attraction will evolve an offering of interactive indoor LEGO play experiences including a ride, 4D theatre and creative workshop, while adding new experiences and a brand-new look and design. Located at Assembly Row in Somerville, it will be the new home of LEGO play and will include a new LEGO Space digital experience, a new Creative Club, a brand-new Mini World created out of more than 1.5 million LEGO bricks, a DUPLO Park, and a Hero Zone.
“We are excited to partner with Merlin Entertainments on the development of the new LEGO Discovery Center in the U.S. which will immerse the whole family in the world of LEGO play,” said Julia Goldin, chief product and marketing officer at The LEGO Group. “Working closely with Merlin Entertainments and their expertise in the location-based entertainment sector, we hope to spark curiosity, creativity and imagination for the builders of tomorrow.”
There are currently 27 LEGOLAND Discovery Centers and one LEGO Discovery Center located across the world, with the new attraction in Somerville to be the first renovated attraction to become the next generation LEGO Discovery Centers in North America.
The renovation is expected to be completed in spring of 2023.
