Love in all its forms – self-love, romantic love, and love for friends and family – will be celebrated at the Museum of Love, a new immersive exhibition opening in The Rocks this Friday, March 5. The experience – from Creative Nation, the group behind lolly-themed exhibition Sugar Republic, which popped up in Sydney in 2019 – will creep across three levels of the heritage-listed warehouse, with Instagrammable backdrops and immersive art installations aplenty.
The exhibition runs the gamut of love-related experiences – from crushes to weddings, strip shows and heartbreak. Visitors will get to take colourful confetti showers, stroll through a “tunnel o’ love” crafted from teddy bears, discover their perfect zodiac match, kick back in a heart-shaped mini ball pit and look through enormous rose-tinted glasses.
The Scents of Love wall will challenge guests to “guess the smell”, and they’ll also get to visit a Vegas-inspired chapel of love. And for those who love to practise a bit of self-love, there’s a selfie room with mirrored walls.
