Gird Your Loins: The Museum of Pizza is Coming

It’s an undisputed fact that Greenpoint residents love pizza. From Paulie Gee’s to Vinnie’s and Ria Bella to well, Paulie Gee’s, we have a plethora of savory slices to choose from.

Stop what you’re doing and sit down. Now for the great news: The Museum of Pizza is coming and it’s headed to North Brooklyn. So take your love of pizza and enjoy an immersive art experience at The William Vale this month. By immersive, we hope this means that we can eat all of the pizza we want.

For $35, pizza revelers will enjoy “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.” Plus, you get a ticket for a free slice of pizza outside the museum. We assume this immersive experience will include sick selfie backdrops, music, and some dope video art (involving pizza, duh). And, a portion of every ticket sale will be donated to a free meal for a family in need.

Tickets for the opening weekend are already sold out, so act now. Buy tickets now.

WHO: The Museum of Pizza
WHERE: The William Vale, 55 Wythe Avenue
WHEN: October 13-October 28
