A historic mansion in the Bronx is hosting an exhibit featuring some amazing Christmas trees.

The Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum in Pelham Bay Park invites you to "A Storybook Christmas," a showcase of eight Christmas trees designed by artists from across the five boroughs and Westchester County.

Each artist based the designs of their trees on a contemporary children's book, including "Olive the Other Reindeer" and "The 12 Days of Christmas," which inspired City Island artist Joe Burck to make a tree featuring elaborate Lego creations.

Ellen Bruzelius, the museum's executive director, said that the exhibit is perfect for the young and the young at heart.

"Well, this is the fourth year that we've done the Storybook Christmas, and it's about children and trees that are sophisticated enough to interest adults and reading and books, and it's just a really fun time."

The museum will host the exhibit through January 5.
