New York, home of all wonderful food based things (bagels, doughnuts, hot dogs, the lot) is finally getting the bastion to dining excellence it deserves: A museum entirely dedicated to pizza.

Imaginatively named The Museum of Pizza, the Nameless Network creation will be a popup pizza adventure, running from 13 October to 28 October.

For $35 (£25) visitors can explore pizza inspired immersive rooms, do pizza meditation, visit a pizza beach, marvel at pizza art, and, of course, eat some pizza.

There will also be a mysterious pizza cave, an interactive history of pizza, screenings of films about pizza, and pizza-themed games.

‘And more’, say the creators. ‘And more.’

We can imagine all of this will make the museum an Instagram dream, ripe for picture-taking opportunities in front of giant bits of pepperoni and high art praising the joy of oil pools in cheese.

‘Pizza’s f***ing amazing,’ reads the museum’s website. ‘Always has been, always will be.

‘But its also more than a tasty epiphany of cheese, dough and sauce – it’s a uniter, a universal language, a cultural exclamation point.

‘To satisfy our dreams (and perhaps yours too?), we knew Pizza needed more than another slice shop or glowing restaurant – it needed a museum. An epic museum.

‘So we created that museum – for you, for us, and everyone else out there whose heart burns with a passion for the perfect pie. A place to capture timeless memories and take in larger-than-life, immersive installations. A space to bask in multi-sensory, psychedelic pizza joy.

‘A place to celebrate our love of the slice, together. And our first stop? New York City.’

Well, we’re on board.

We’re hoping that the reference to a ‘first stop’ means that the Museum of Pizza will eventually come to the UK, but if not at least we can gaze upon photos of people ripping apart deliciousness with their teeth while we dunk our Domino’s into garlic sauce.

Do enjoy.
