In time for Christmas, Lego is releasing a Natural History Museum scaled down to just over 4,000 bricks.

The Natural History Museum set, item 10326, will feature a brachiosaurus skeleton, dual atriums, and a geology section on the landing with gems and geodes.

The large skeleton is so big that its neck rises above the first floor of the building and stretches into the second floor. Other exhibits in the museum include a sabretooth skull and dinosaur eggs.
