Ready to take a walk down memory lane? The Museum of Memories has landed in Dallas near Fair Park, and with it, a slew of interactive art installations to evoke all of our childhood memories! The goal? “To infuse art and creativity with universal coming-of-age experiences to create a playful, quirky, and nostalgic environment for all ages.” The result? An engaging, colorful and fun pop-up for us Dallasites to enjoy this summer!
So let’s take a deep dive and name some reasons you should check it out!
Take a trip back to the 90’s
The Museum of Memories, while can really be for anyone of all ages, has a special place for millennials! It was designed by Texas-born artist, Steffi Lynn Tsai, who wanted to create human connection through her exhibit and used moments from her 90’s childhood to do just that! And it’s clear Clueless had an impact on Tsai as there’s both an As If wall, and a life-size notebook and fluffy-pink-pen-a-la-Cher room!
you can play in a bowl of cereal
All of the 20+ murals are interactive and you get a solid 60 minutes to enjoy, play and explore them all! From a mega-bowl of cereal in the “Saturday Morning Cartoon” themed room that is sure to brighten up your Instagram feed, to a flower power wall to a dreamy cloud room to a birthday installation to rooms filled with one primary color including yellow, coral and green, so you can even take advantage by planning your outfit to match your favorite color!
It’ll make you instantly happier
I mean, does this photo of happy basketballs and daisies decorating a basketball court make you instantly smile? If not, maybe that seesaw that really works, will! All the rooms and murals are contagiously positive and feel-good, so whether you visit solo for a good mood-pick-me-up or with friends to laugh and play, you’re sure to come out feeling better than you did before you entered.
It’s great for kids on summer break
School is out for the summer! That means if you’re a parent, or babysitter, you need to find something to do with your kids to keep them entertained! Take them to the Museum of Memories! It’s a discounted $20 for kids age 4-12 years, or it’s FREE for kids 3 and under! And you’ll be very thankful by the end of the 60 minutes when they are exhausted from exerting their energy running around the murals.
your social media will thank you
While you might not answer “yes” to the question “Do you need some good quality head shots and photos of yourself” right now, your next life announcement or update on social media will thank you! Because let’s be honest, we have all been there thinking we don’t need photos of ourselves, and then when the time comes, have to sift through photos from years ago that aren’t ever that great! The Museum of Memories offers the perfect backdrop to collecting a great portfolio of fun and professional photos to have on hand when the time comes!
