The 1476-piece model is a detailed cross-section of the Great Pyramid, featuring its main tunnels, chambers and the system that may have been used to move huge stones during its construction. Features include; 2 small pyramids, 2 mortuary temples, Sphinx statues, an Obelisk and more.

The building journey is just as nuanced as the model itself, which means it’s certainly not for the faint-hearted. You can expect to draw on all your childhood lego building techniques here, and dedicate some solid time to this gem. A step-by-step guide is included as a booklet with illustrated instructions, plus information about the history of the Great Pyramid of Giza and how LEGO designers created this model – all the insider goss LEGO heads look for.

More than ever, adults are in need of fun, creative downtime activities and between our busy schedules, endless to-do lists and hectic social lives, finding the time to unwind, use our hands and immerse ourselves in an alternate world of LEGO is just what the doctor ordered. The model is part of LEGO’s range of architecture sets designed for adults, so we recommend you keep the kiddies away from this one, unless they’re a LEGO genius, of course.

We recommend buying this for yourself, especially if you love LEGO, or used to as a kid. It also makes an impressive gift for an architecture connoisseur, history buff or travel-lover. So, carve out some time, grab some snacks and get building!
