A Take Me Out To the Ball Park mural has 55,269 Lego bricks. A portrait of Derek Jeter was created using 5,066 Lego bricks. There are more than 15 Lego creations in the show.

The exhibition showcases artist Sean Kenney, one of only 13 "LEGO Certified Professionals" in the world.

A replica of Miller Park, home of the Milwaukee Brewers, was built by Tim Kaebisch when he was a graduate student at the Milwaukee School of Engineering. The Miller Park creation utilizes more than 35,000 Lego bricks and has a retractable roof that actually moves.

The museum also includes the world's largest baseball bat and a tour of the Louisville Slugger factory.
