Youngsters were treated to a combination of sci-fi and Lego last weekend when they visited Moyse’s Hall Museum to take part in a drop-in craft workshop.

Around 40 youngsters and their parents first went on a special trail, called Superhero Reconnaissance, around the museum, to find Lego superheros and comic book characters including Captain America, a Stormtrooper, Ironman and Super Ted.

They had to solve puzzles as they went along before wining a Dr Who Lego set prize, including a Tardis and Daleks.

The youngsters then took part in Lego craft workshops with many of them building futuristic scenes involving bonfires and fireworks.

“It was a fun day and the youngsters all enjoyed themselves as they searched around the museum for the superheros,” said St Edmundsbury Borough council heritage officer, Dan Clarke.

“Lego events have always proved popular at the museum so we thought we would add a touch of Danish toy magic to our sci-fi event and it seemed to go down well.”

The museum trail and Lego craft workshop was all part of the current Sci-fi and Action Exhibtion which runs until November 13. The exhibtion has attracted people from all over the country with some visitors coming from as far away as Leeds and Somerset especially to see the original Superman and Terminator costumes on display.

“We would like to thank everyone for making our eighth exhibition a success and there is still time to see the exhibits,” added Mr Clarke.
