The ground floor houses several different natural history exhibits, including a Brontosaurus skeleton stretching over two floors. The second floor is filled with space and science artefacts, while the top floor/roof includes the museum curator’s office. The set also features two skylights, designed to allow light to enter the set’s interior. The set comes with 7 minifigures.

The museum has a footprint of 48 studs x 32 studs, so is one and a half times as wide as a standard modular and the same depth.

While many people will be rushing to proclaim this as the best modular set yet, it doesn't give us anything much different to what we've had before. With Assembly Square, we a completely new design built around a central square whereas the Natural History Museum mainly just takes the bigger is better approach.
