LEGO Model of Vatican Welcomes Pope to Philly

Many people have been looking forward to the Pope’s upcoming visit to Philly, especially Rev. Bob Simon from St. Catherine of Siena Church in Moscow, Penn., who spent about 10 months and used over half a million LEGO pieces to re-create a detailed LEGO replica of the Vatican. Simon’s creation is on display now at The Franklin Institute, a Goldstar partner.

Read more about the replica here, and see it for yourself — if you’re in Philly — through mid-February as part of the Vatican Splendors exhibit.
