Here’s the press release from LEGO:

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.

Get ready to go on a journey from the past to the future and celebrate key moments in world history with the LEGO Icons Natural History Museum Set.

    One of the images on this site shows an 8th minifigure and a light blue & white food truck off to the side. Did the food truck get left out of the final set, or could it be a GWP that is coming soon?

    This set is ridiculously small. I don’t expect it to be “to scale” with reference to the other modulars but goodness, it should at least be 50percent bigger for more museum stuff. It’s basically a house with 2 dino statues inside.

    The color scheme is hideous. A building with ionic columns in a neoclassical design is olive green. It makes no sense.
    I was so excited for this set when I heard about the theme. I wouldn’t touch this for any price now.
    The building should be deeper to actually allow for a decent exhibit. A rotunda in the entrance and make the dinosaur display actually fit the concept.
    Just absolutely terrible execution. Its absolutely clear why they released this before Christmas because sales of this set would be abysmal post holidays.

    @Emachine given that basically you are on your own with this opinion does not support this reasoning.
    Sure, it is extremely compressed, but all modular sets are like that. A hotel with 2 rooms, a cinema with 12 seats and so on. I don’t think this is a negative.
    The olive color is bolt, sure, but given the style of the modulars, it fits, just using white and light nougat, while being more “realistic” would have had too little contrast and I understand, that they did not copy the color scheme of the bank, the last real neo classical building and I am thankful for this.
