PHOENIX — Tacotopia, an immersive pop-up museum in Santa Monica, California, will be making an eight-week stop at Tempe Marketplace this fall.

The museum, which was first previewed at South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas, has a variety of interactive exhibits and over thirty spaces with “larger than life” installations, per a press release.

Taco fanatics can be excited for taco-themed rooms, riding a mechanical taco, jumping in a guac pit and swinging on a lime wedge.

The Instagram-worthy pop-up museum will also travel with a “Party Like a Guac Star” silent disco and upside-down taqueria.

Individual tickets and private parties for the Phoenix stop of the tour are available for purchase.

The museum will be in Tempe from Sept. 20 to Nov. 24.

Each ticket includes the chips and hot sauce sample bar, a bottle of Jarritos and a taco.

Tacotopia will also stop in Miami, New York City, Chicago, Atlanta and San Francisco.

We want to hear from you.
