LEGO Saturn V Display Ideas

1# Display Cabinet

The coolest way I’ve found to display LEGO Sturn V is using a glass display cabinet. This display idea was shared by LEGO fan hn_ns, who uses an IKEA detolf glass cabinet, mounted the set on a skinny metal pole, covered the pole with orange LEDs, and covered all of that with cotton glued together to form a smoke pattern and get a rocket effect. 

This can be a great way to display your Saturn V rocket at home, in the classroom, or anywhere without the little ones being able to touch it. 

This article shows a step-by-step guide you can follow to have that rocket effect.

2# Display With a Copy of the Apollo 11 Flight Plan

Another fantastic way to display your Saturn V set is to display it with a copy of the Apollo 11 Flight Plan, the original poster that shows the flight path that took Apollo Astronauts to the moon.

The poster served as a blueprint for the first lunar landing in 1969. The orbital path indicates the position of the Saturn V rocket, the lunar excursion at each critical stage of the mission, and the command service module. 

The poster looks perfect as a background for the LEGO Saturn V and is available printed in four colors at or get it printed out on

Can LEGO Saturn V Be Displayed Vertically?

Yes, LEGO Saturn V can be displayed Vertically. Though it is a very tall set, it stands vertically on the engines very nicely, and there’s a display stand (available on Amazon) that is designed specifically for the Saturn V set, which provides a much more stable base than simply resting the set on the engines alone.
