Every day is cheat day at Cheat Day Land!

Introducing L.A.'s Newest Interactive Pop-Up Museum, Cheat Day Land

Pop-up museums have become the new norm in L.A.

From the Museum of Ice Cream to Happy Place, not a month goes by where there isn't a new one to check out. October is no exception.

This moth, the immersive new exhibit Cheat Day Land will open its doors in the L.A. Arts District. For those of you who were lucky enough to visit MOIC, you'll find the space deliciously familiar.

Unlike its predecessor, Cheat Day Land is dedicated to, you guessed it, cheat days. With rooms dedicated to everything from donuts and chocolate to burritos and cereal, there are no shortage of photo ops for your social media or things for the kids to climb on or jump in.

Women.com was lucky enough to attend a press preview before it opened to the public, so keep scrolling to discover our favorite rooms from the museum and more.

What Can I Expect From Cheat Day Land?

We're glad you asked. Cheat Day Land is obviously dedicated to all the indulgent foods you chow down on during your cheat days (which is every day, as far as we're concerned).

The first few rooms are dedicated to junk food staplesโ€”pizza, fries, hamburgers, wings, hot dogs, soda, and burritosโ€”which serve as the perfect backdrops for all your Instagram posts. Make sure your phone is charged, because you'll be snapping photos at every corner.

What's a cheat day without some chocolate? After you treat yourself to that deliciousness, you'll find yourself in an exhibit dedicated to the most delicious dessert ever createdโ€”chocolate.

Though it looks good enough to eat, it's not at all edible. That being said, Cheat Day Land offers plenty of food samples in the various rooms on different days, so come with a large appetite.

Our two favorite rooms come next in the sequence.

One is dedicated entirely to cereal and features a large bowl filled with bouncy balls and foam letters complete with a gigantic spoon. Both you and your little ones will have a blast swimming in a sea of cereal.

We'd give anything to have our very own massive cereal bowl to play in on any given day.

Then comes another favorite (and one so many people are already dying to experience)โ€”the donut-themed exhibit.

From a donut rock wall you can climb and donut weights you can lift to donut swings and a giant donut box you can sit in, we're not joking when we say you'll feel like a kid in a candy (er, donut?) shop.

The fun doesn't stop there. After you satiate your sweet tooth, you'll enter a space where you can eat pancakes with The Rock. Yep, you read that right.

Not only that, you'll be given the chance to bounce on a frying pan-inspired trampoline in order to really feel like a flapjack yourself.

Once you're done gawking over The Rock, you'll be able to snap plenty more photos in rooms where you can actually wear your foodโ€”in the most fashionable way possible, of course.

Take a pic behind bars or in front of a trippy black and white illusion. The choice is yours, which is what a cheat day is all about.

The tour concludes with a giant food sculpture that stretches taller than the highest mountains, but we'll let you experience that for yourself. There's another sculpture both you and your kids will find humorous, but again, we'll keep that a secret so we don't give too much away.

There's even a gift shop you can visit to buy a multitude of knickknacks, including prints of the art and food-inspired merch.

Your Most Common Questions About Cheat Day Land, Answered

How long will Cheat Day Land be open?

Cheat Day Land is just a pop-up museum, so it will only be in L.A. for a month. Hopefully, they're willing to extend it, but we can't make those types of promises.

Tickets are $38 for everyone, except for those 4 years old and younger. They're lucky enough to experience the exhibit for free.

Where can I get tickets?

You can purchase your tickets here. Get 'em while they're hot, because this museum isn't going to be around forever, and you definitely don't want to be one of the few who missed out on attending.

What are Cheat Day Land's hours?

Cheat Day Land is open the entirety of October from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., so even the busiest of people can experience this interactive masterpiece.
