Build Architectural Icons with These 7 Amazing LEGO Kits

LEGO architectural building kits are a great mash-up of iconic real-world locations—like the Great Wall of China and the Statue of Liberty—and classic building blocks. You can tour the world (in plastic) with these fun kits.

The Statue of Liberty

While the real Statue of Liberty is just over 151 feet tall, you can enjoy a much smaller version with this 1,685 piece LEGO set. Your LEGO statue might only be 17 inches tall when completed, but it’s still pretty awe-inspiring.

If you want the entire New York experience and don’t mind an even smaller version of Lady Liberty, check out the LEGO New York Skyline building set. It includes the Flatiron, Chrysler, and Empire State Buildings, as well as One World Trade Center.

The Empire State Building

Many pieces in the LEGO skyline collections are also available in larger LEGO architecture sets, as well. While the tallest building in the New York skyline collection measures only 10 inches, this Empire State Building is 21-inches tall. This kit includes 1,767 pieces.

Trafalgar Square

A common destination for tourists and locals alike, Trafalgar Square in Central London can come alive in your home with this wonderous LEGO set. Not only does the view include neat little LEGO trees, but this set also includes clear blue plastic pieces to mimic the water fountains.

The Great Wall of China

If you don’t think you’ll ever get a chance to visit the Great Wall of China in person, you can put together this 551-piece LEGO replica right in your own living room. It stands about four-inches tall and is around 10-inches long, so it doesn’t take up much space. It’s a particularly nice kit for apartment dwellers.

Arc de Triomphe

This 386-piece Arc de Triomphe LEGO set will make you want to visit Paris. It’s a wonderfully detailed piece—it even includes a golden plate to represent the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the eternal flame.

If you want even more Paris architecture, you can get a smaller version of this landmark, along with the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Grand Palais, and more, in the Paris Skyline collection.

The White House

You get the full effect of the White House grounds with this 1,483-piece LEGO set. Not only do you get the house, but there’s shrubbery too!

When complete, this replica stands just four-inches high by 18-inches long.

The Tokyo Skyline

If you want colorful, unique buildings, look no further than the Tokyo Skyline collection. It includes the Tokyo and Mode Gakuen Cocoon Towers, Tokyo Big Sight, Tokyo Skytree, Shibuya Crossing, Chidorigafuchi Park, and more.

We covered a few of the LEGO Skyline collections above, but there are more, including:

One of the coolest features of the LEGO Architecture series is each set includes a booklet about the structure you’re building. Not only do you get to create something cool, you get to learn about it, too.
