Seventh-Annual Lego Shipbuilding Day is Twice as Big

By Elijah Palmer
Deputy Education Director, Hampton Roads Naval Museum

We are excited to be hosting our 7th annual Brick by Brick Lego Shipbuilding event at the Decker Half Moone Cruise and Celebration Center on February 3! This year we are happy to announce that we will have over double the space as the previous years. This has allowed us to expand certain activities and areas.

Some highlights:
  • Our ever popular STEM-based Build A Ship areas will have more ships than ever available to construct. There are 16 different designs ranging from Easy to Expert levels. 
  • The Lego Shipbuilding competitions (Made at Home, and Made at the Museum), which are divided by age groups for judging. Entries must be submitted by 2 p.m. 
  • Free play Lego and Duplo areas. Kids can come play and be creative. 
  • Lego robotics will be on hand through the generous support of local groups. 
  • A new addition this year is a sensory room (quiet space for those with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder)

For questions or more information, check out our Facebook page, call 757-322-3168 or email No need to register--just show up!

Parking is available for $1.50/hour in the city parking garages on Main Street, Plume Street, and City Hall Avenue.
