Build a LEGO brick model of the Louvre, the world’s largest museum of art.
Located in the heart of Paris on the bank of the river Seine, this magnificent structure, renowned for its striking blend of Renaissance and Modernist architecture, welcomes over 9 million visitors a year and houses over 35,000 works of art, including Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. The Louvre started life as a fortress, built by King Philip Augustus in 1190 to protect Parisians from foreign invasion, and has since undergone a number of renovations. The result is the architecturally stunning Louvre we know today.
This detailed LEGO model features the prominent Pavilion de l’Horloge and the iconic, once controversial glass pyramid designed by the renowned Chinese-American architect, I. M. Pei.

What fun! – By Jackson Karow on February 10, 2016
What a fun way to spend a couple hours! While a little small, the finished product is quite detailed and very aesthetically pleasing. A little expensive, but it’s Lego- what can you expect?
Very nice Lego architectural model – By Harold Alexander, Jr on February 10, 2016
Very nice Lego architectural model. Usual high quality from Lego. Instructions clear. Reasonably priced considering the quality of the finished product. Small size, approx. 7×7″, won’t require a lot of storage space.
Great educational building puzzle. – By Lillian McNulty on January 31, 2016
This was a gift for my grandson. It was being put together as soon as it was unwrapped. He’s 11 years old and he enjoyed very much working on it.
