If you were to look through my Nanoblock collection, you would find several famous landmarks. One of my most recent additions is the Nanoblock Golden Gate Bridge set.
- Collection: Sights to See
- Difficulty level 3
- About 30 min to finish
- Comes with 380 pieces
- Brick sizes start at 4x4x5 mm
- Step-by-step instructions

Putting together a model of the bridge was a great experience because it allowed me to branch out of the usual designs. It was also a great time to educate my children on this well-known landmark.
Of course, my children do recognize the bridge from the opening of Full House. Why not allow them to learn more about the bridge by helping me to build the model?
You may be looking to learn more about the bridge and collectible yourself. By reading through my review, you can find…
- A brief history of the Golden Gate Bridge.
- Information on the Nanoblock Golden Gate Bridge set.
- Other landmarks available as Nanoblock models.
My goal is to help you decide if you want to add this set to your collection, so I made sure to do enough research on various websites, blogs and YouTube.

It never hurts to learn about the design you are building with your blocks, especially when there are several ways to use that information. For example, I want to use the information on the bridge to educate my children.
You may want to learn more about the bridge because you are curious about the landmark, or maybe you want to determine the best way to display your model after you are finished building it.

This is why I wanted to research the bridge before sharing my review of the set.
Did you know that there is a set of the Himeji Castle? You can find my review of the Himeji Castle Nanoblock set by clicking here.

Construction of the bridge started in 1933, and the bridge was complete and opened to the public in 1937.
The bridge connects San Francisco to Marin County, California.
Building The Bridge
Construction started with the erection of the towers, and these towers carry the entire weight of the bridge. The building of the bridge took place before technology was around to make construction easier. Watch The B1M’s video about this gorgeous construction:
What started off as an impossible project has turned into a landmark that is still standing today.
The Bridge Today
Today, the bridge is a big source of traffic between San Francisco and Marin County. In fact, over 2 billion cars have crossed back and forth on the bridge since it was opened to the public.
The bridge is a well-known landmark that has become an American icon. It has become so popular, security had to be increased to maintain safety on the bridge.
In addition, the bridge has become a model for various kits and sets, including Nanoblock, Lego and LOZ Block.
Nanoblock Golden Gate Bridge Set Specs
When you purchase the Golden Gate Bridge set, you have the opportunity to build a compact 3D model of this famous landmark.
The details are my favorite thing about this set, from the curves of the bridge to the surrounding water and pieces of land. There are even enough pieces to build one or two boats for a realistic feel.
The set comes with 380 pieces, including the extra pieces that come with every set.
The pieces are as small as 4 mm by 5 mm for a compact design with a perfect fit. Once assembled, the entire display measures 6 inches by 3 inches by 3 inches.
All sets are based on a scale of one to five. One is the easiest level, and five is the most advanced level.
The Golden Gate Bridge is based on a difficulty level of three. It is a little challenging to build the bridge, but it is not too difficult for builders. The set is also designed for ages 12 and older.
It can take several hours to put together this model, but it also depends on your schedule and distractions. My children and I spent the weekend putting together the bridge, but we also had to stop for activities such as dinner and bedtime.
Overall, do not expect to put this bridge together in 30 minutes or less.
There are several other landmarks and well-known spots in this collection, such as the Space Center. In this article, I share my review of the Space Center Nanoblock set.
The set comes with step-by-step instructions to help you build the bridge, but you can also find a copy of the instructions online.

Tom & Jerry’s Vlogs shows you how to build the Golden Gate Bridge in this video. It is ideal for anyone who prefers to follow along with a video instead of written instructions.
The Nanoblock Golden Gate Bridge Is Worth The Time and Money
With the accurate details, level three difficulty and step-by-step instructions, I would say the Nanoblock Golden Gate Bridge is definitely worth the time and money.
