The carvings are the primary evidences of settlements and human activities this far North during prehistoric time. Due to this fact, the rock art of Alta was listed as a cultural heritage on UNESCO’s world heritage list in 1985.

’Traces in rocks’ offers lots of interaction and entertainment for the entire family. The 150 m2 exhibition will open during the summer of 2018.

HISTORY COLLECTION IN LEGO House

When LEGO House, the toy company’s brand-new experience centre in LEGO hometown Billund, opens on 28. September 2017 – Kvorning Design & Communication has a finger in the pie. In close collaboration with LEGO, Kvorning has designed and produced the History Collection which showcases all the highlights since 1932.

In a continuous, close collaboration with the LEGO Group’s ever so committed and inspired employees within the historic branch, Kvorning Design and Communication has designed and developed the exhibitions for the History Collection in the base of the LEGO House; a new 12,000 square metre experience centre in LEGO’s home town Billund.

Explore childhood memories

As grown-ups and kids head down the stairs, or descend by the elevator, into the basement and the History Collection, they are welcomed by a 2 x 2 metre logotype. The visitors will explore their own childhood through the gems of the exhibition: LEGO products will convey the company’s long history though significant milestones, drawings and models. Here is everything a true Lego fan could possibly imagine. Of course, there are also animations of kids playing in classic scenarios, familiar to most visitors either from themselves or their kids.

LEGO® models and boxes through decades

Halfway through the collection visitors will see a light which lures them into a room resembling the interior of a giant LEGO brick. The room features an exhibition of original LEGO models and boxes through decades. Regardless of age, anyone can find a cherished LEGO box, either as a physical model or on the interactive table displaying more than 5,000 LEGO boxes. In two, big round showcases and along the walls are hundreds of original models and boxes on display to stir dear memories. History Collection is a true treasury which will steal your heart and mind.
