Toy and Plastic Brick Museum

Museum phone is not being answered, and it has no recording. The museum also has a large chain-link fence around its parking lot, with a sign that says they will be back in May.

Mona Lisa, Spider-Man, White House.

Unofficial Lego Toy and Plastic Brick Museum

The museum has a kind of an honor system as far as admission goes. The displays are amazing, although some need to be worked on, as the "push this button" feature didn't work on several. If you've ever tried to follow the direction in a large Lego kit then you can appreciate the time and effort this man has put into his creations.

Mount Rushmore and the Mona Lisa were particularly amazing as they were 2-D renditions made entirely of single-dot Legos!

Bellaire Toy and Plastic Brick Museum

This place is great, especially if you are Lego fans. From the Mount Rushmore to the Mona Lisa to Darth Vader and Spider man -- wow, there is a lot to see here. I would only add that as I got off the highway, I did wonder where the directions where taking me as it brought me through a rather neglected neighborhood and to a somewhat neglected building. Despite first appearances, the Toy and Plastic Brick Museum is definitely worth the visit.

Unofficial Lego Museum

This is the most amazing place I have ever visited in my 43 years of life. It's a school built in 1930 that was renovated room by room and still is being worked on to become the home for Lego retired statues.

The old Gravel Hill School opens it ground to visitors weekly to show them the world of Lego art. Three and half floors of rooms are filled with displays made from that famous plastic brick.

I saw Mt Rushmore, Mona Lisa, Harry Potter and more, made as paintings, yet they are Lego. I met Darth Vader, and Spider Man. There are rooms full of castles, skyscrapers, trains, and lions.

All the volunteers and staff build things with residential builder Dan Brown.
