LEGO has officially announced the next set in the Modular Buildings Collection with the LEGO Icons Natural History Museum (10326). Unlike previous years where it releases in January, it will actually be available starting on December 1 and you can pre-order it today. It retails for $299.99 and has 4,014 pieces which is the most pieces used for a building in the history of the theme.
The museum features two floors of science exhibits including a brick-built Brachiosaurus skeleton that stretches into the second floor. Other dinosaur exhibits has a sabretooth skull, a fossil, and dinosaur eggs. There’s also a geology and space exhibits as well.
In one of the lifestyle images provided by LEGO, there’s a random blue food truck next to the set which could suggest that it could be a future gift with purchase item. LEGO has not responded to questions on what it is yet at this time but don’t be surprised if it drops in the near future.
Unlocking History Brick by Brick: The LEGO Group unveils the highly anticipated the LEGO Icons Natural History Museum Set.
30th October 2023: Today, the LEGO Group announces the arrival of its largest modular set by piece count and one of the most requested building themes by fans – the LEGO® Icons Natural History Museum Set.
The LEGO Icons Natural History Museum Set is the perfect addition to the LEGO Modular Buildings Collection, and features fresh architecture, new building techniques and countless fun stories. The two-story model includes dual atriums, a removable roof and middle floor, and is packed with brick-built exhibits and details.
To the right of the entrance, visitors are welcomed by a giant brick-built Brachiosaurus skeleton. This dinosaur is so large, its neck rises above the first floor and stretches into the second. It’s flanked by several smaller exhibits including a sabretooth skull, a fossil, and yes, even dinosaur eggs. Up on the landing, the museum’s geology section showcases a colourful array of quartz, geodes, stalagmites and spotlighting a cutaway of the earth and its molten core.
Heading up to the second floor, witness a large map of the planet showing the projected orbit of a new rocket, a detailed orrery of the solar system, and a diorama of a future space base. Up on the roof, the museum’s curator recounts their experiences and travels in their detailed office writing memoirs.
