Welcome to a museum where the art is sweet!

Frozen delights come to life in Ice Cream Land.

And giant scented lollipops will rotate until you go insanely happy!

Welcome to The Sweet Art Museum in the neighbourhood of Marvila in Lisbon where the art is sweet.

 

The Sweet Art Museum is the first pop-up digital museum in Europe fully dedicated to happiness.

Carla Santos and Hugo Silva, the project mentors, were inspired by similar spaces that opened last year in other countries and decided to replicate the concept in a space to explore the “dream, sweet and colourful” universe.

Take a look at this fun, Instagram-friendly space!

DoNut worry, be happy! Unapologetically 10 per cent Instagram-friendly, the SAM encourages future visitors to share their best shots using the hashtags #TheSweetArtMuseum, #SayYesToHappiness and #TheSAM. Photograph: @thesweetartmuseum/Instagram

Head on to the happiest place in Europe, and here's something to make you smile even more. For each ticket sold, the museum will donate €1 to Terra dos Sonhos, a Portuguese charity that makes dreams come true for children with chronic diseases, institutionalised teens, and senior citizens.
