Welcome to another real life post. This is kind of great that this is happening again though I will admit that I was supposed to post this last week instead of the mid year chat, but things happen.
I heard about the Museum of Aloha from a friend and had no idea that it had already been up a month and that it was about to be taken down. I believe that it’s supposed to be model a bit after the Museum of Ice Cream in Los Angeles. Has anyone been to that? How is it? All the instagram pictures look amazing and make me want to go.
Matt and I paid for our tickets , it was $10 a piece for an hour or so. There are two rooms that are timed, but you could wander through the gated area for longer just taking pictures.
The tickets looked cute, too bad we didn’t get to keep them. 🙁
The first room you were able to go into was the lei room. There were thousands of fake flower leis hung up. I can’t remember how many the guy said were hung.
It was supposed to be a maze, but you could hear where the next room was so it wasn’t challenging. Matt finally got to do his Hobby Lobby challenge picture properly, so that was a bonus for him. It was kind of cool to see the color coordination of some of the leis and how they tried to do a gradient or rainbow in some areas.
The next room was the confetti volcano room. There was a ton of confetti on the floor and you were able to stuff the volcano or the cannon and take pictures as it went off. It went off 3 or 4 times. It was pretty cool!
I tried hard to look cute in all these photos, but honestly I look like a weirdo here.
And a weird cat here. I’m seriously not annoyed at the confetti.
They usher you out of the room after that and give you stickers to put on an oversized statute of a bear and that was incredibly anti climatic.
Around the outside there were several sets of angel wings, so of course more pictures
There’s also a cute picture on my instagram profile of me with angel wings. Matt says I’m the worst photographer of trying to get him with angel wings, but perhaps it just means that it’s time for me to get a new phone.
In a booth before you exit there was a place giving nitrogen filled ice cream balls, so it looked like you were smoking. The frozen ice cream reminded me of food they give to astronauts in space. They also sell that stuff at the Air & Space museum in Washington D.C. if you want to try some. I heard there’s another place that does nitrogen infused food, so perhaps we’ll have to go and try that sometime.
The last thing was a mirror photo booth with crepe paper, which you could also take pictures in. The reflective crepe paper made it really hard to take pictures.
I’m really glad that I found out about this and that Matt and I were able to go. I can’t wait to show you more fun things that we get up to in Hawaii. Let me know if there’s anything specific that you would like us to check out. I’ll see you soon with another post.
