The latest food museum is hatching in New York City.

The Egg House, an interactive pop-up devoted to eggs, is coming to the Lower East Side next month.

Founder Biubiu Xu, 25, behind the foodie WeChat handle Eatnyc, came up with the idea for the experience, running April 7 to June 27 at 195 Chrystie St.

The focus is on the egg because it’s “universal,” she said in a news release. “It can be seen in almost every cuisine. Although each culture interprets it differently, it’s so versatile that everyone can relate to [it].”

The pop-up will feature several rooms, from “the kitchen,” with breakfast-themed installations, to “the pool,” which will be filled with caviar-shaped balls. There will also be a gift shop selling egg-themed merchandise.

Throughout the space, visitors can buy egg-inspired eats by NYC vendors including the cafe Egg Shop, egg waffle-ice cream parlor Eggloo, and dessert specialist Jars by Dani, which will be making cupcakes.

There will also be free samples, like egg breakfast items and eggnog, catered by Break & Co.

Throughout the run, The Egg House plans to hosts chefs, such as Le Coq Rico’s Antoine Westermann, for talks on all things eggs.

Tickets for the experience go on sale March 15 and cost $18 ($12 for seniors and children under 10).

The Egg House is just the latest Instagrammable food experience to open in New York City. Since the blockbuster Museum of Ice Cream ran in the Meatpacking District in 2016, a chocolate museum from chocolatier Jacques Torres debuted last year in South Village. A candy museum is also coming to the Flatiron District this summer from the team behind Sugar Factory.

Like the Museum of Ice Cream, Xu plans to bring The Egg House to other cities, likely starting with the West Coast later this year, according to a spokesperson for the event.
