Scenes fro New York Hall of Science in Queens including the mass installation of Gingerbread Lane in New York

November 14, 2014 @ 9:30 am - January 11, 2015 @ 12:00 pm

Marvel at homemade gingerbread houses that are drafted, designed, baked, planned, built and decorated by chef Jon Lovitch over the course of an entire year. GingerBread Lane is made from only “real” edible ingredients: gingerbread, royal icing and candy. Last year’s GingerBread Lane at NYSCI was recognized as the largest gingerbread village in the world by the 2014 Guinness World Records. Free with NYSCI admission.

    I would like to know if the Gingerbread lane is still open and what is the price of it. I would like to attend today 12/30/14. Also is this a separate ticket from the regular admission?
    Thank you.

      GingerBread Lane is open during regular museum hours through January 11 (closes at 1 pm on January 11). It is free with general NYSCI admission; you do not need a separate ticket to see GingerBread Lane.

      Yes, the gingerbread houses are still on exhibit. I was there today. You can see them using the regular admission. You will find it at the entrance to the theater. Enjoy.

      Yes it will! We’ll probably announce in Fall all the winter activities.
