BRICKLIVE comes to the Detroit Zoo


BRICKLIVE is on display all summer at the Detroit Zoo 

The coolest supersized sculptures you’ll ever see are assembling at the Detroit Zoo this summer during BRICKLIVE, presented by Michigan First Credit Union.

BRICKLIVE returns to the Detroit Zoo and showcases dozens of animals made from millions of bricks. It features life-sized critters built of bricks and encompasses a three-acre jungle of creativity. Selfie stations are also included in this exhibit. BRICKLIVE contains over 70 unique toy brick models consisting of over two million bricks. The fun summer experience runs from 27 May to 4 September 2023.

  • A 3-acre jungle of creativity that sparks curiosity, joy and amazement for guests of all ages! 
  • “Selfie stations” inside the jungle-themed Jeep or the fascinating Venus flytrap!
