Located in Vaughan Mills Shopping Centre just north of Toronto, LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre is an interactive LEGO®-themed experience that features games, rides, exhibits, and a 4D movie theater. Its wide range of activities and amenities make it a popular destination for families with small children.
Geared toward kids ages 2 to 10, LEGOLAND Discovery Centre’s permanent exhibits include a LEGO factory tour, which demonstrates how plastic is turned into LEGO blocks; Miniland, a detailed miniature replica of Toronto; and Merlin’s Apprentice, a ride that features interactive challenges.

How to Get There
LEGOLAND Discovery Centre is located in the Vaughan Mills Shopping Centre, 15 miles (24 kilometers) north of Toronto, and is most easily accessed by car via Route 400. If traveling by public transit, take bus 20 or bus 760, which both stop at the entrance to Vaughan Mills.
When to Get There
LEGOLAND Discovery Centre is open from 10am to 8pm Monday to Saturday and 10am to 7pm on Sunday. Although it’s certainly busiest on weekends, the venue limits the number of guests, ensuring that it never feels overly crowded. Visitors holding annual passes gain access to special events, from exclusive movie previews to breakfast with the LEGOLAND mascot. Themed adult nights are held on the last Friday of every other month.
