Happy Place is the newest experiential, multi-sensory pop-up exhibit and it is now open in Chicago.
Happy place exhibit-goers can experience 13 made-for-Instagram themed rooms including an upside-down bedroom, disco room and confetti room inside the 20,000-square-foot pop-up exhibit. Tickets cost $30-$35 for those wanting to visit and pictures are of course encouraged.
Happy Place follows in the footsteps of similar pop-up exhibitions like the Museum of Ice Cream, The Color Factory and 29rooms. These “museums” are offering what many say are manufactured for Instagram pictures. Despite what critics say, the demand for these made-for-Instagram museums is not slowing down. Starting in Los Angeles, Happy Place exhibit was sold out with over 100,000 visitors. Chicago is the second stop on what is going to be a Happiness tour to cities around the world.
Happy Place states that the rooms are specially designed to evoke feelings of happiness.
