    The Museum of Pizza

    The Museum of Pizza

    Pizza is the undisputed, democratically-elected champion of food. The snackable luxury whose freedom is universal.

    Like a best friend, pizza is fun, reliable, consistent, flexible and unselfish. Always here for us when we’re hungry, happy, hurried or hungover. Pizza does not judge; it is always for the people, by the people - and that’s why we love it.

    In fact, we love pizza so much we created #MoPi, the museum for it. A place to take amazing photos and absorb every wonder of our larger-than-life, immersive installations. A space to bask in multi-sensory, psychedelic pizza joy.

    A true destination to celebrate our love of the slice, together.

    The Museum of Pizza is the world's first and only immersive art experience celebrating pizza, coming to NYC this October 2018.

    A portion of every ticket purchased will be donated by the Museum to provide a free meal for a family in need. Every ticket holder is entitled to one free slice at or outside the venue (and the Museum will do its best to make additional pizza available), but, to be clear, this is a Museum dedicated to art, culture and fun, not just eating.
