Cupnoodles Museum, Osaka, Japan
An ode to everyone’s college dorm room staple, this museum is worth going to for this tunnel alone.
Museum of Pizza, New York City
The Museum of Pizza opens for a limited time this October in New York City. What’s on deck? A cheese cave, pizza art gallery and a pizza beach. Obviously, that’s enough to justify a trip, but to sweeten the pot, a portion of every ticket purchased will be donated to provide a free meal for a family in need.
Museum of Ice Cream, San Francisco and New York City
Winky Lux, New York City
Makeup brand Winky Lux has opened its first experience store in New York City (the first of five). Basically, it’s an interactive museum version of Sephora, aka a fully immersive retail experience. You walk through different rooms like the Alice in Wonderland styled floral garden, a hydration station in the clouds and a miniature scaled coffee shop (where you can order coffee). Next up are locations in Chicago, Atlanta and Los Angeles.
Snoopy Museum, Tokyo
There’s a new exhibition every six months at this adorable ode to all things Peanuts. There’s also extensive information about creator Charles M. Schulz.
Hello Kitty Orchid Garden, Singapore
The Hello Kitty Orchid Garden is more of a restaurant than a museum you can meander through, but it does pay homage to all things kitty as you eat Hello Kitty-shaped waffles and sip Hello Kitty-themed cappuccinos surrounded by Hello Kitty decor and art.
This museum was constructed in the azure waters surrounding Cancun and features over 500 life-size sculptures fixed to the sea floor! Explore the museum by glass bottom boat, snorkeling or scuba diving.
Sulabh International Museum of Toilets, New Delhi
There is indeed a museum dedicated to the global history of sanitation and toilets! Learn everything there is to know about this indispensable everyday item at the Sulabh International Museum of Toilets.
Happy Place, Chicago
Originally in Los Angeles, Happy Place will be in Chicago until early September before hitting the road once again. Highlights include the world’s largest indoor confetti dome and a giant ball pit set up in front of an inflatable double rainbow.
Not to take away from the Met or the Louvre, perennial must-see destinations, but modern times call for modern museums and organizers have read the memo. Interactive museums, many of which are temporary pop-ups or exhibitions, are popping up all over the world. In line with the growing obsession toward food, many of these are odes to vices like ice cream, candy and pizza. Others pay homage to childhood (and adult) favorites like Snoopy and Hello Kitty. In any case, all of these museums make for uniquely unforgettable experiences that people of all ages (with the exception of one X-rated museum) can enjoy — and Instagram to their heart’s content. Needless to say stopping at any and all gift shops at these museums is a must!
