Oregon Museum of Science and Industry is a key landmark in Portland, Oregon and an exciting opportunity for people of all ages. This winter is no different as OMSI opens up an exhibit specifically to celebrate the Holiday Season.

Portland architects and bakers coordinated to produce the event. It will be part of OMSI’s latest exhibit, entitled “Illusion: Nothing Is As It Seems”. It just recently opened and will run through January 1st.

According to an article in The Oregonian, all of the gingerbread houses are made up of 80% edible material and have a wide variety of themes, which include merry-go-rounds, skyscrapers, and landscapes.
