Join us as creativity and imagination come to life with more than 250,000 colorful LEGO® bricks. BricksALIVE features a collection of more than a dozen animal sculptures throughout the Aquarium’s second floor. These amazing and complex figures represent species that call South Carolina home.
Requiring five months of construction time, these incredible sculptures are designed and built by the Aquarium’s exhibits team and include a bald eagle, a sea turtle, a river otter and an 8-foot dolphin.
BricksALIVE aims to connect guests with animals and the ocean, ultimately inspiring guests to connect with and care for our environment. The experience is included with general admission to the Aquarium or an Aquarium membership.
