The Top 10 Biggest LEGO® Sets Ever
Always wanted to know what the biggest LEGO® sets are? Our LEGO designers love a challenge, especially when it comes to making huge sets. In recent years, we’ve seen the likes of the LEGO Titanic, the LEGO Art World Map and the LEGO Colosseum; all of which have pushed the limits and broken boundaries in the LEGO brick world.
Now it’s time to say bonjour to one of our newest BIGGEST LEGO sets... the LEGO Eiffel tower!
Yup, one of the most famous landmarks in the world now has its own HUGE LEGO brick version and it’s absolutely enormous.
But exactly how big is this latest LEGO set? What are our other massive LEGO sets? What is the meaning of life? The answer to virtually all of these questions can be found below. Here are the 10 biggest LEGO sets ever made (in order of piece count)...
With over 11,000 pieces, the LEGO Art World Map is not only our biggest LEGO set (in terms of piece count), but also a beautiful piece of wall art.
Put your own stamp on the world and create patterns in the oceans, get creative with the bright colors and choose which continent will be at the center.
Once built, you can track your travels, create your own bucket list using small, colored pins or simply just admire it as a unique piece of home decor. There’s no other world map out there that’s quite like it.
LEGO® Eiffel tower
While we may have released LEGO brick models of the Eiffel tower before, none compete with this one in terms of sheer size and grandeur.
Measuring 58.5 in. (149 cm) high, this is our tallest LEGO set to date and the ultimate representation of Paris’ most famous landmark.
Featuring a true-to-life structure and all the intricate details, the new LEGO Eiffel tower includes beautiful trusswork, elevators, a broadcast tower and the French flag at the very top. Incroyable!
Unless you own The Louvre, or a really big garage, good luck finding a place to put it...
While it’s certainly the tallest set, it has 10,001 pieces, which isn’t as many as the LEGO Art World Map...
Measuring 53 in. (135 cm) long, the LEGO Titanic is the third biggest LEGO set in terms of size. This 1:200 scale model of the historic ship makes it the ultimate building project with 9,090 pieces. It’s a whopper!
Packed with authentic details, inside and out, the set honors the original ship featuring a grand staircase, a boiler room, different cabins, lifeboats and even the first-class dining room.
Any history lover will enjoy recreating details like the promenade deck and swimming pool. You can even watch the piston engines turn inside as you turn the propellers.
The main question is... where do you put it? If you need some tips, here’s how to display huge LEGO sets at home...
3. LEGO Colosseum
A mere two millennia after the original was built, there is finally a Colosseum made of LEGO bricks. This incredible model is packed with fascinating details worthy of the most iconic amphitheater in history.
With 9,036 pieces in this set, making it pretty massive, our designer Rok Zgalin Kobe explained that “the more the model was being perfected, the more pieces went into capturing its details”. Want to know more? Here’s how we made the LEGO Colosseum...
If you’re looking for a showstopping display piece for your home, this set could very well be it.
4. UCS LEGO Star Wars™ Millennium Falcon™
Now, we were going to make a joke about how funny it was that we used to think 7,541 pieces was actually *big*, but Chewbacca just walked into the room and seems to be indicating that we don’t write that. Either that or he’s hungry – we don’t speak Wookiee.
Chewy is one of seven minifigures in this eye-popping set that stands at 33 in. (83cm) long and 22 in. (60cm) wide. And (you won’t believe this), it can do the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs!
Be sure to check out the video from our Designer Video series, where two of the set’s designers go through its numerous features, in minute detail.

LEGO® Star Wars™ AT-AT™
Another LEGO Star Wars™ set features on the biggest sets list, this time with the majestic AT-AT.
The LEGO Star Wars AT-AT is 24.5 in. (62 cm) high featuring moveable, posable legs so fans can relive the Battle of Hoth in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.
The stunning model comes with an information plaque for display and can be opened to reveal a detailed interior filled with Easter eggs. The main body of the model has space for up to 40 minifigures, with 9 included in the set!
With 6,785 pieces, it’ll make for an immersive build for any Star Wars fan.

LEGO® NINJAGO® City Gardens
While this multi-level vertical city set might not top the list of most bricks, it’s got a strong case for being the most fun. Hidden compartments, moving mechanisms, beautiful greenery and 19 minifigures…
This the largest LEGO NINJAGO® set ever made and the model is packed with all kinds of rooms to explore from Chen’s noodle house, an ice cream shop and a ninja control room.
Although its 5,685 pieces offer a pleasantly difficult building challenge, far more challenging is having to lie to your friends to say you bought this set for your kids.
6. LEGO Creator Expert Taj Mahal
A landmark in the real world, a landmark in the LEGO world. This set was such a fan favorite that we re-released it in 2017 – a full 9 years after its initial release!
It contains 5,923 pieces and stands at over 16 in. (43cm) tall thanks to the stunningly rendered central dome. Who said mausoleums had to be depressing…?
