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…
THE DESSERT MUSEUM G/F, S Maison Mall, Conrad Hotel Manila, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City Store Hours: 10:00 AM – 10:00 PM (Last tickets sold by 8:00 PM) Mobile: +63 917 506 2670 Facebook: The Dessert Museum Instagram: @DessertMuseum Twitter: @dessertmuseumph E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Website: www.thedessertmuseum.com https://flic.kr/p/KfpTWk Guides welcome you as you enter the museum. How cute are their uniforms? https://flic.kr/p/24coZ5V Candy canes are given at the start of the tour. https://flic.kr/p/ExbK4T The tour starts with a slide through the donut hole and into the Donut Room. A side door is accessible for PWDs. Royaltea Milk Tea Room (New Room) The ROYALTEA MILKTEA MADNESS ROOM is The Dessert Museum’s first tie-up with different brands just to give you the perfection needed for your sweet endings. Partnered with ROYALTEA to make this Boba Paradise come to life! Get inside the giant milktea cup people could pose in.
Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo! Find yourself inside the bewitching bakery filled with life size cookies, cakes and treats!
1. DONUT ROOM https://flic.kr/p/249vFY5 Careful with the slide…it’s very slippery! Yellow donuts, pink frosting, and sprinkles–it’s like the Homer Simpson donut was brought to life. https://flic.kr/p/KfnBNc Our tip: watch your head! These donuts aren’t exactly fluffy like the real ones. https://flic.kr/p/249t4rw Apart from the hanging donuts, there’s also a donut wall that makes for a good backdrop. 2. MARSHMALLOW ROOM https://flic.kr/p/249uUqm Hundreds, or maybe even thousands, of marshmallows hanging from the ceiling! You could say it’s raining mallows. https://flic.kr/p/G4urU9 The end of the rainbow isn’t a pot of gold, but rather, edible marshmallows. https://flic.kr/p/24cqSRi Dessert #1: The marshmallow room houses three different fondues–chocolate, strawberry, and caramel. 3. NAUGHTY OR NICE? (Room removed) https://flic.kr/p/249r1RW As you make your way out of the marshmallow room, you’re faced with a choice–Naughty or Nice? https://flic.kr/p/KfjLs2 This room is visually split into two colors. Pink for naughty, and blue for nice. https://flic.kr/p/249sDbh There’s a jump rope on one side… https://flic.kr/p/24cm7k2 …and shelves full of balls on the other. https://flic.kr/p/ExcixR Right in the middle of the room is a seesaw. Pick your side! https://flic.kr/p/G4qTAN 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. https://flic.kr/p/KfmAGM Dessert #2: The Naughty or Nice room lets you choose between pink and blue macarons. 4. ICE CREAM ROOM (Room Removed) https://flic.kr/p/249r8PJ The ice cream room greets you with a floor to ceiling installation of balloons and ice cream cones. https://flic.kr/p/237tmfy Perhaps one of my favorite murals in the space is this of a cone overloaded with scoops of ice cream. https://flic.kr/p/Kf9ci6 Dessert #3: Time for some ice cream! https://flic.kr/p/Kfqy92 Pose in this ice cream cone that doubles as a hot air balloon! https://flic.kr/p/24cjssa The Dessert Museum isn’t just for pictures. Stop for a moment and read the trivia on the walls. 5. GUMBALL ROOM https://flic.kr/p/237utb5 This room features a large gumball machine that you can step into. https://flic.kr/p/22PYPhe 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 (Room Removed) https://flic.kr/p/22PUNwK Across the gumball room is one of the more interactive areas of the museum–the Gummy Bear room. https://flic.kr/p/22PXs2k There are four larger-than-life gummy bears. https://flic.kr/p/KfpdRg There are also three miniature bathtubs filled with more plastic balls. https://flic.kr/p/G4qiUu Don’t forget the trampolines! 7. COTTON CANDY (Room Removed https://flic.kr/p/24cp5tR From the sensory overloaded gummy bear room, the next is quite tame in comparison. https://flic.kr/p/22PV3Kp 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. https://flic.kr/p/249sh73 Dessert #4: What else could it be? Cotton Candy, of course! 8. CAKE POPS https://flic.kr/p/22PW1YX Eight gigantic cake pops are suspended upside down, similar to how excess glaze is made to drip in real baking. https://flic.kr/p/249vYK1 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. https://flic.kr/p/237yfwu Dessert #5: Bite into one of the cake pops and see if you get Chocolate or Red Velvet. https://flic.kr/p/237xnq1 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. THE DESSERT MUSEUM G/F, S Maison Mall, Conrad Hotel Manila, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City Store Hours: 10:00 AM – 10:00 PM (Last tickets sold by 8:00 PM) Mobile: +63 917 506 2670 Facebook: The Dessert Museum Instagram: @DessertMuseum Twitter: @dessertmuseumph E-mail: email@example.com Website: www.thedessertmuseum.com Here are some of our tips so you can make the most out of your visit… https://flic.kr/p/237xPcG 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. https://flic.kr/p/22PWxBv 2. Bring your friends. This is a great place to bring your squad and take great pictures together! https://flic.kr/p/KfpAhx 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. https://flic.kr/p/24cpyq2 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.
