If you’re in Times Square and looking for a endlessly fun and educational experience for the whole family, look no further than Discovery Times Square, New York City’s first large-scale exhibition center presenting limited-run, immersive exhibit experiences that explore the world’s defining cultures, art, history and events.

After hosting Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, Leonardo da Vinci’s Workshop, King Tut, and Harry Potter, among others, the space now features three showstoppers: Nathan Sawaya’s The Art of the Brick, SHIPWRECK! Pirates & Treasure, and BODY WORLDS: PULSE.

The Art of the Brick at Discovery Times Square in NYC

The Art of the Brick features the largest display of LEGO® art ever assembled, with brand-new, never-before-seen masterpieces by New York-based artist Nathan Sawaya, and is the first major museum exhibition to use LEGO® bricks as the sole art medium. Sawaya’s ability to transform this common toy into something meaningful, his devotion to spatial perfection and the way he conceptualizes action, enables him to elevate what almost every child has played with into the status of contemporary art.

“This [is] my largest showing of artwork to date and I’ve got some very exciting surprises in store for New York, of course, being it’s my hometown,” says Sawaya. “Discovery Times Square is known for bringing epic collections of unique and immersive exhibits to New York so to be able to have my collection of sculptures exhibited here has profound meaning to me.”

You can get an up-close and in-person view of the iconic, pop culture fan favorite, Yellow, a life-size sculpture of a man ripping his chest open with thousands of sunshine yellow LEGO® bricks cascading from the cavity. In addition, you’re able to walk under a 20-foot-long T-Rex dinosaur skeleton made out of bricks and come face-to-face with a giant LEGO® skull.

You can also embark on a journey through maritime history with Shipwreck! Pirates & Treasure. The exhibit features over 500 authentic artifacts, including millions of dollars worth of gold and silver treasures, as well as the amazing science and technology used to work thousands of feet below the ocean’s surface. You can get the full shipwreck explorer experience with the hurricane wind tunnel to feel the force of how storm winds would feel on the open sea and even dig for treasure with a real robotic arm.

Body World Pulse at Discovery Times Square in NYC

Earlier this summer, Discovery Times Square announced that it would be the first permanent home for BODY WORLDS, the world-renowned, international traveling exhibitions of aesthetic anatomy. BODY WORLDS: PULSE, the multimedia experience about the human body and the challenges it faces navigating the 21st century, will be a star attraction in the Theater District for the foreseeable future.

Save 20% on tickets to BODY WORLDS: PULSE with code CG20BWP.

BODY WORLDS reveals the splendor, form, and function of the human body through Plastination, the science of specimen preservation invented by German anatomist, Dr. Gunther von Hagens. The exhibitions, seen by more than 37 million people worldwide since 1995, have opened to critical acclaim in major global cities including London, Milan, Vienna, and Berlin, but have not, until now, had a permanent home. 


Discovery Times Square is located at 226 W. 44th St. btw. 7th & 8th Aves. For tickets, call 866-987-9692 or click here.
