History

Lego bricks were invented by Danish carpenter Ole Kirk Kristiansen in 1958. The Lego employees were often interrupted by visitors who wanted to see what they could build with Lego bricks. So one day someone came up with the idea to build a park where visitors could build with the bricks. The first Legoland Discovery Center was opened in Berlin in 2007, and since then a total of 12 Legoland Discovery Centers have been opened. Legoland Discovery Center Westchester was opened in March 2013.[1]
