President George Washington laid the cornerstone of the Capitol back in September 18, 1793, and while the neoclassical assembling has seen many architectural changes over the intervening centuries, it has remained one of the country’s many iconic assemblings.

Lego created an effort to get the detailing right, and the kit comes with all things required to create the facade, dome, steps, north and south wings, colonnades, and lawns. In a really great touch, the dome is removable and lifting it reveals a peek of the National Statuary Hall rotunda, deplete with tiled floor, columns, and eight statue pieces.

A booklet is included detailing information of the create, architecture and history of the Capitol.
