The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Mich., will soon feature a Lego replica of the home of the Detroit Lions, Ford Field, according to the Detroit Free Press.

It is just one of many architectural replicas that will be on display for the "Lego Architecture: Towering Ambition" exhibition that will open on Saturday. Among the other buildings that will be on display are New York City's Empire State Building, Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater and St. Louis' Gateway Arch.

The creator of the exhibit, Adam Reed, said he used Ford Field blueprints to complete the 5-foot-by-5-foot Lego version of Ford Field which includes seats and a field. A picture of the replica can be seen here.

Ford Field opened in August 2002 and has a capacity of roughly 65,000 for Lions games, although the capacity can be raised to as much as 80,000 depending on the event. The Lions will play their next game at Ford Field on Nov. 18 when they host the Green Bay Packers.
