The Dessert Museum: Manila’s Most Scrumptious Museum @dessertmuseum (UPDATED)

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…

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

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


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.



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.

And, really, it’s basic math—it’s not a complete dessert without the ideal beverage, right? Why not try the human-size claw machine to win yourself a free large brown sugar milk tea drink?


🚨Warning: Sugar Level Low 🚨 Need my milk tea fix please


Oooohlala boba time realness! Expect a full blast Boba goodness on your way! Loving these two tapioca inspired rooms!


Banana Beach (New Room)

Ba ba ba banana! This is my new favorite room! I don’t know if it’s because I love the color yellow or if it reminds me of the minions!


Tea Set (New Room)

Let’s have a giant tea party! Doesn’t this remind you of Alice in Wonderland?


Piñata Pit (New Room)

Ola! Smash them piñatas and submerge yourself in a confetti carnival!


Bewitching Bakery (New Room)

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo! Find yourself inside the bewitching bakery filled with life size cookies, cakes and treats!




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.


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


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




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


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


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


3. NAUGHTY OR NICE? (Room removed)


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


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


There’s a jump rope on one side…


…and shelves full of balls on the other.


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


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.


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


4. ICE CREAM ROOM (Room Removed)


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


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!


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


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




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


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)


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


There are four larger-than-life gummy bears.


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


Don’t forget the trampolines!


7. COTTON CANDY (Room Removed


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


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.


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




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


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.


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


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…


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.


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


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 Tickets are at ₱ 799 for weekdays, and ₱ 899 for weekends.


Live an Awesome Life,

  1. Thanks for this review! I went here two weeks ago and there has been a lot of changes in some rooms. I’m glad they are improving.

  2. Hi! Do you have any idea if how much does it cause for toddlers less 4 years of age or maybe infants?

  3. they no longer have some of the rooms stated and the dessert is not as big as shown. We went there today and fill disappointed 🙁
