Architecture aficionados will get a kick out of a new exhibition showcasing scaled down versions of well-known buildings from around the world. The structures are created from nearly 7 million Mega Bloks by Gilles Maheux, a former architectural designer, and his son Steven.
The exhibit, called Ludovica Miniland, is set up thematically and features buildings from cities such as Athens, Rome and Shanghai. Visitors can also go on a North American road trip and see mini versions of New York, Atlanta, San Francisco and even Montreal. The Fantasia section features a Disneyland replica and the fictional worlds of the Minions and the Smurfs.
Entry costs $14 for adults, $12 for seniors, $10 for teens 13 to 17, $8 for kids 4 to 13 and free for kids under 4. The exhibition opens on Thursday, March 3 at 2 p.m. at the Grand Marché de la Rive Sud, 3386 Taschereau Blvd in Greenfield Park. It will be open from 10:30 a.m. until 8:30 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, and 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
