There's a place in New York where you can see gingerbread houses that are more a work of art than an edible holiday display.

Step into gingerbread house heaven to see an amazing display of confectionary creativity at the Eastman Museum in Rochester. 45 gingerbread houses fill the mansion for the 25th annual Sweet Creations. "We’re placing many of the creations in display cases to make it safer and easier for visitors to enjoy them while social distancing," said museum officials.

All of the gingerbread creations are available to take home this year. For the first time, the museum is holding a silent auction, exclusively online. And it's not just gingerbread houses you can bid on either. There's several beautiful wreaths you can own too.

Proceeds from the auctions benefit the George Eastman Legacy Collection.

You can see and bid on the creations from until Sunday, December 13th. Winning bidders will be alerted by e-mail when the auction closes and must pick up. "We cannot ship or deliver items."

Eastman Museum is located at 900 East Avenue in Rochester. Learn more at
