Needless to say, the pandemic has certainly come with adverse effects on everyone’s mental health. For that reason, Riyadh’s new Museum of Happiness couldn’t have come at a better time. 

Sprawling over a 1,300 square metre space, the interactive museum is Saudi Arabia’s most fun museum yet, with a host of happenings that are sure to take anyone’s worries away. Ever wanted to dive into a pool filled to the brim with marshmallows? Now you can—with your mask on, of course. 

If you’re looking to relive your childhood by hopping into a yellow rubber duck-filled bath tub, you can now take that journey down memory lane at the museum. Vibrant in its design, the space is not only entertaining, but it’s instagrammable too. Every experience at the museum is its very-own one-of-a-kind IG photo-op. 

And if that’s not enough, the space is complete with a Happiness café, where they serve offer a selection of teas and desserts, which of course include cotton candy to satisfy your sweet tooth. The museum also includes an expansive gift shop for you to take the fun back to your own home.

The museum is open daily starting 4pm, and if social distancing is a major priority for you (and it should be), the museum offers private tours so you can have the space all to yourself.
