Photos inside Candytopia
In 2018, the concept of a pop-up museum really means only one thing– It’s an opportunity to take selfies in front of visually appealing shit. San Francisco lost its mind over the chroma-filled color factory, then months later, the Museum of Ice Cream (Moic) arrived on the scene and people didn’t seem to care that they were buying into the exact same thing. When I bought the tickets, I knew what to expect, but I have to say… Candytopia is far inferior to the Color Factory and Museum of Ice Cream.

To start, it felt like there were far fewer rooms and things to explore in Candytopia. There were only 5 or so rooms that were memorable, and in those rooms, there wasn’t much to interact with.
My reserved self felt so out of place in this kiddie room
The audience for Candytopia appeared to be parents with small children. There were kids everywhere and some of the rooms were specifically designed as kid play structures. It felt like our group of four women sans children didn’t belong.
I ultimately had to let loose a little and just pose for the camera.
The Gallery room has artwork on the wall made entirely of jelly bellies.
The Candytopia wormhole wall felt random in a place all about candy.
The ocean room at Candytopia was by far the most impressive.
