Springfield Science Museum Display Looks Good Enough to Eat

Gingerbread HousesSPRINGFIELD (WGGB) — The Springfield Science Museum has a new exhibit that looks good enough to eat.

It’s ‘The Magic of Gingerbread’, featuring houses, castles, and holiday scenes all made out of gingerbread.

This year’s display – which is also an annual competition –  features 27 entries made by professional and amateurs alike.

Plus, the creations are set amongst a backdrop of Christmas trees, murals, and scenes inspired by the classic ‘A Christmas Carol’.

“This display, with the help of UMass students, we created murals and sculptures to compliment the gingerbread house competition that we put on,” said exhibit designer John Simpson.

Visitors are encouraged to vote on their favorite gingerbread displays and the winner will be announced on the Springfield Science Museum’s Facebook page December 31st.
