Pop-Up Spotlight: The Museum of Pizza

October 25, 2018

By Hannah Bryon-Staples and David Balk

Pizza heaven, quite literally, can be found at the Museum of Pizza, currently located at The William Vale hotel in Williamsburg. Here’s a look at our experience when we went to take a bite out of this latest NYC pop-up…

Art meets pizza in an ode to the food we all know and love. Upon entering, you immediately come across the Psychedelic Pizza Parlor, a group show featuring over 20 artists and their decorated pizza boxes and pizza-esque sculptures. It sets the tone for other pizza-inspired rooms to come!

Thereโ€™s the “black light pizza universe,” perfect for getting that shot for your Instagram, throwing some boxes around, and dancing for a Boomerang.

The mozzarella room is, well, a room with mozzarella-like sculptures surrounding you as you wander towards more immersive pizza experiences.

The museum is very interactive with tactile objects everywhere and plenty of photo-op backdrops, and you can take your time or move through pretty quickly.

We stopped off to experience the pizza vortex, a film that surrounds you using mirrors and music, then took a trip to pizza heaven and ended up at the pizzeria that greets you at the end of your journey, offering a range of slices (included in your ticket price). Enjoy your cheesy slice from Williamsburg Pizzaย in a traditional-style restaurant that celebrates pizza and ranch, and make sure to take some โ€˜dough portraitsโ€™ in the photo booth!

You don’t want to miss this delicious event! Tickets can be purchased on the Museum of Pizza website for $35. This limited experience will come to an end on November 18th, 2018.
