Presenting the LEGO Architecture interpretation of one of the most iconic landmarks ever constructed – The Eiffel Tower!
Designed and built by French entrepreneur, Gustave Eiffel, the original 324-meter-tall masterpiece of wrought iron engineering formed the grand entrance to the 1889 World’s Fair, held in Paris to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution. During construction, the 18,038 wrought iron elements making up the tower’s lattice structure were bolted together at Eiffel’s factory on the outskirts of Paris, before being transported to the site, hoisted into place by steam-powered cranes operating from the elevator shafts, and assembled using no less than 2.5 million individual rivets. The resulting structure was extremely rigid and over the years has withstood storms, floods and everything else mother nature has thrown at it. Today, The Eiffel Tower is one of the world’s most popular landmarks, attracting millions of curious visitors from around the world each year.
With this exceptional model, you can now build your very own 321-piece Eiffel Tower in LEGO brick form and display it in your home, office or wherever you like!

A++ for design and construct quality. – By Anthony R. Calfo on August 18, 2016
Srsly, srsly awesome. My nieces jumped on this amongst a pile of gifts…worked together, disassembled it and rebuilt it separately. A++ for design and construct quality.
Great Lego Set, even for a 9 year old – By Dana Jones on August 16, 2016
I bought this for a 9 year old girl who loves Legos and Paris (her bedroom is Paris themed.) It took her longer to put together than her Lego Friends sets, but she was able to put it together by herself after about 3 days. The finished set is cute-a nice addition to her bedroom. Now she wants more of this series like the Sydney Opera House.
Great Gift very Detailed – By Victor Hernandez on August 13, 2016
This was a great gift for my 9year old daughter. The pieces were small but she was able to snap them in place herself. I love that it is a land mark which can inspire children to learn about new places. It had lots of details for her to add on to her building. It looked very much like the structure but it was smaller then I was expecting.
Very cool Lego set. – By Edna Diolula Belove on July 26, 2016
What a great lego set… Enjoyed putting this together with my husband. Instructions to put it together are easy enough for an adult, maybe a little hard for a young child. A young child may need assistance from an older child or adult. It looks great on the mantle and it reminds us of our trip to Paris. Very cool!
Lovely structure! – By Marsha Lee on July 25, 2016
Our four- year old granddaughter asked for this as a birthday gift. She had some help assembling it I think, but it’s still very nice anesthesia very proud of it!
