From the creator of the Inflatable Island comes a new concept–Instagrammable museums! The Dessert Museum is a 12,000-sq. ft. space with 8 mouthwatering rooms of sugar-filled happiness.

With the advent of spaces like the Ice Cream Museum in New York and 29 Rooms in LA, it’s about time Manila got its own Instagram haven. What’s a better concept than a dessert museum?

Here’s a rundown of the eight mouthwatering rooms…

Guides welcome you as you enter the museum. How cute are their uniforms?

oap-dessertmuseum-00069

Candy canes are given at the start of the tour.

The tour starts with a slide through the donut hole and into the Donut Room. A side door is accessible for PWDs.

1. DONUT ROOM

oap-dessertmuseum-00020

Careful with the slide…it’s very slippery!

Dessert Museum

Yellow donuts, pink frosting, and sprinkles–it’s like the Homer Simpson donut was brought to life.

oap-dessertmuseum-09546

Our tip: watch your head! These donuts aren’t exactly fluffy like the real ones.

oap-dessertmuseum-09716

Apart from the hanging donuts, there’s also a donut wall that makes for a good backdrop.

 

2. MARSHMALLOW ROOM

oap-dessertmuseum-01447

Hundreds, or maybe even thousands, of marshmallows hanging from the ceiling! You could say it’s raining mallows.

oap-dessertmuseum-00006

The end of the rainbow isn’t a pot of gold, but rather, edible marshmallows.

oap-dessertmuseum-20180123151530

Dessert #1: The marshmallow room houses three different fondues–chocolate, strawberry, and caramel.

 

3. NAUGHTY OR NICE?

oap-dessertmuseum-09997

As you make your way out of the marshmallow room, you’re faced with a choice–Naughty or Nice?

oap-dessertmuseum-00008-edited

This room is visually split into two colors. Pink for naughty, and blue for nice.

oap-dessertmuseum-09806

There’s a jump rope on one side…

oap-dessertmuseum-09746

…and shelves full of balls on the other.

oap-dessertmuseum-01548

Right in the middle of the room is a seesaw. Pick your side!

oap-dessertmuseum-09836

At the far end of the room is a swing for two people. Have someone assist you as you sit as it’s quite high.

oap-dessertmuseum-09843

Dessert #2: The Naughty or Nice room lets you choose between pink and blue macarons.

 

4. ICE CREAM ROOM

oap-dessertmuseum-09981

The ice cream room greets you with a floor to ceiling installation of balloons and ice cream cones.

oap-dessertmuseum-09980

Perhaps one of my favorite murals in the space is this of a cone overloaded with scoops of ice cream.

Dessert #3: Time for some ice cream!

oap-dessertmuseum--5

Pose in this ice cream cone that doubles as a hot air balloon!

oap-dessertmuseum-09991

The Dessert Museum isn’t just for pictures. Stop for a moment and read the trivia on the walls.

 

5. GUMBALL ROOM

oap-dessertmuseum-09932

This room features a large gumball machine that you can step into.

oap-dessertmuseum--3

The easiest way to describe what ensues soon after is cute chaos. Strong airflow and colorful balloons do make for great photos.

 

6. GUMMY BEARS

oap-dessertmuseum-09948

Across the gumball room is one of the more interactive areas of the museum–the Gummy Bear room.

oap-dessertmuseum-01408

There are four larger-than-life gummy bears.

oap-dessertmuseum-01407

There are also three miniature bathtubs filled with more plastic balls.

oap-dessertmuseum-09969

Don’t forget the trampolines!

 

7. COTTON CANDY

oap-dessertmuseum-00061

From the sensory overloaded gummy bear room, the next is quite tame in comparison.

oap-dessertmuseum-09876

Clouds of cotton candy fill the room in tree-like forms. Almost like the Thneed from Dr. Seuss, but not quite.

A gigantic cotton candy machine is situated in the middle for all your pictures.

oap-dessertmuseum-09919

Dessert #4: What else could it be? Cotton Candy, of course!

 

8. CAKE POPS

oap-dessertmuseum-09655

Eight gigantic cake pops are suspended upside down, similar to how excess glaze is made to drip in real baking.

oap-dessertmuseum--8

The only caveat of this room is if you plan to climb one of the higher cake pops–it’s doable, but not without difficulty.

oap-dessertmuseum--9

Dessert #5: Bite into one of the cake pops and see if you get Chocolate or Red Velvet.

oap-dessertmuseum-01336

We had a lot of fun going around the rooms and taking photos. Time flies when you’re having fun. Personally, 2 hours feels like too short of a time but we made the most out of it.

Here are some of our tips so you can make the most out of your visit…

oap-dessertmuseum-00050

1. Charge your phones and cameras.
A slot entitles you to 2 hours inside the museum–that makes it 15 minutes per room. Make sure your cameras are fully charged to last through all the picture taking sessions.

oap-dessertmuseum-01571

2. Bring your friends.
This is a great place to bring your squad and take great pictures together!

oap-dessertmuseum-01325

3. Dress up!
Make sure to wear comfortable shoes also as you will be moving around a lot. I would advise not to wear skirts or dresses as they’re awkward on the slides and the cake pops.

4. Lastly, have fun!
Don’t hold back on the silly poses…it’s all about having fun!

 

The one difference between Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory and The Dessert Museum? You don’t have to peel through loads of chocolate wrappers to get your hands on a ticket. The Dessert Museum opens to the public on February 10. Tickets are available through www.thedessertmuseum.com. Tickets are at ₱ 799 for weekdays, and ₱ 899 for weekends.
