LEGO has been around for as long as anyone (born in the past four generations) can remember. The iconic bricks have been a constant source of entertainment and creativity for young and old alike, and this time, the company will be offering anyone who is keen a visual history lesson on LEGO. For free.
In wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the LEGO House Live Tours will be held for the public over the course of the next three months. There will be five of these virtual tours in total, with the first one beginning in 11 June. Admission for each tour is free, though participants would need to register ahead of time.
The tours will take place in the LEGO House itself in Billund, Denmark, and will provide an “in-depth tour” on the history of the LEGO Group, which began in 1932. As such, each of the five tours marks an important chapter in the company’s history. A LEGO historian will be present during the tours as well to answer questions via the tour’s live chat.
Here are the details for each individual tour, with the dates marked in bold:
- Tour 1: The beginning of the LEGO Group, 1932 – 1946 (11 June 2020)
- Tour 2: The LEGO Group – Consolidating plastic, 1947 – 1961 (25 June 2020)
- Tour 3: The LEGO Group – Expanding the LEGO System in Play, 1962 – 1978 (9 July 2020)
- Tour 4: The LEGO Group – Introducing new ideas, 1979 – 2001 (13 August 2020)
- Tour 5: The LEGO Group – Crisis and turnaround, 2002 – 2019 (1 September 2020)

Marion has a serious RPG addiction. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher’s body clock. Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
