SOMERVILLE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Northeast's first LEGO Discovery Center reopened its doors on Wednesday after nine months of renovations.

"The power of creativity, it translates into real jobs someday guys, real jobs," Governor Maura Healey said at the ribbon-cutting ceremony in Somerville's Assembly Row.

One parent that attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony said LEGO has played a big role in his life and career.

"LEGO is why I became an engineer," one dad told WBZ's Madison Rogers. "I'm just so excited to be able to pass this down to my girls."

The new immersive experience includes a mini-world that is half Boston and half fantasy with Boston buildings reimagined out of LEGOs. Inside the center, mini-builders can jump over a LEGO crocodile, create a LEGO clone of themselves, ride a VR LEGO coaster, or build their own adventure using the power of imagination.

"I had a fun time, I went up in the jungle gym," one little builder said.

LEGO Group announced over the winter the company is moving its American head office to Boston by the end of 2026.
