Building the Universe, One Block at a Time

Uncover the secrets of the atom in our free temporary exhibition, developed by the University of York.

From the stars, to medicine, to electricity generation, discover how nuclear physics has shaped the world around you. Featuring a 7-metre long LEGO® model containing over 25,000 LEGO® bricks, this exhibition explores inside the atom. Join the Binding Blocks team from the University of York’s Department of Physics and see the elements like never before. You’ll even have the chance to see the nuclear chart in the virtual world of Minecraft.

This pop-up exhibition will be on show at our flagship King’s Cross building during February 2020 and is recommended for ages 12+. 
Exhibition closed: 11 and 13 February.
