6 Bricks Under: Vienna Cemetery Introduces Funeral LEGO Sets
Kids will have a blast assembling a LEGO crematorium, hearse, grave and more now available from the Vienna Funeral Museum.

Build your own funeral piece by piece with these LEGO kits from Bestattungsmuseum, the Vienna Funeral Museum in Vienna’s Central Cemetery. The museum’s gift shop and online store recently unveiled custom Lego sets designed to help kids answer the big questions like “What happens to grandpa in a crematorium?”
“Taboos create fears and uncertainties,” the Vienna Psychotherapy Association said. “The child feels that something is wrong, and then he is left alone with that.”
So to teach kids about death, the museum partnered with a company to produce some gloriously morbid Legos.
“For the small and large undertaker of tomorrow,” the description from the Historical Hearse set reads.
Other sets currently available include a WWI-era funeral tram, Lego graveyard with tombstone and excavator, a fourgon used to transport the deceased, a crematorium oven with a casket and urn, a horse-drawn “corpse carriage,” a bereaved family with the skeleton of the deceased, and minifigures in mourning.

Thanks to Dead Sled Brand for putting this on my radar.
I was able to order it online, They even said they would deliver to the United States. They took $100 for me and never mailed me my Legos. It’s very cool, but don’t waste your time they won’t send it to you.
What did it take so long for this sort of thing, In a world screwed up by Dr. Spock devotees, is the real question. Long over due.
I do Cemetery work for a living does anyone know where I can get all of these sets
The little Skelly and the hearses! So cute. I love there. Who do I send my money to?
Beam me up, Scottie… there’s no intelligent life down here.
Unless this is being used by a licensed person in a therapeutic environment, NO!!! As a retired School Social Worker, of 30+ years, this could become more of a problem than solution to kids questions. Parents or guardians are not going to monitor and discuss. They’re dealing with the loss, also. This will not be helpful outside of a clinical setting. Please don’t commercialize death with toys for kids. Death, loss and grief are much more important than kids playing with Lego Morbidility sets.
Where can I buy this? I work in the funeral industry and this would be amazing to have.
Shut up and take my money
I want them all, right now, today…please
I want these!
I want all this!!!
Take my money!
