Part of the LEGO Architecture series, the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. is a 1,032-piece construction set that measures 17-inches long by six-inches wide. Originally designed by William Thornton in 1793, the Capitol Building has gone through several changes over the years. The set's design is based on the building's current look from the white columned façade to its famous steps and lawns. The kits removable dome lifts to reveal a fascinatingly detailed interior, which depicts the famous National Statuary Hall complete with columns, statues, and a tiled floor. The U.S. Capitol building model also has a nameplate to put a neat finishing touch on your completed display piece.
This building kit, which represents one of our nation's most important structures, makes for a wonderful display piece in your home or office. While a LEGO product, it's more of a collectible than a toy. Either way, it's still fun to put together and will give you a sense of accomplishment once completed. History buffs and patriots will appreciate the detail LEGO has put into the Capitol Building from the columns to the interior of the National Statutory Hall, an unexpected feature that shows how much craftsmanship went into it.
