Relive Your Childhood With This Pop-Up Museum Dedicated To Britney Spears
By Kelsey Marie
If you’re a product of the 90s like me, Britney Spears sang the soundtrack to a lot of your childhood memories. You can now relive those moments with a pop-up museum dedicated to the music of the legendary pop star.
The interactive pop-up, The Zone: Britney Spears is located in Los Angeles and has 10 rooms, with each room representing a Brittney Spears video or musical era.
Jeff Delson, lead producer of The Zone tells CNN, “As fans, we wanted to create an experience that was an amazing snapshot of her career. We wanted to honor Britney and her music, so we spent a year and a half to two years developing, designing and conceptualizing what we wanted the space to be, with her blessing, of course.”
The pop-up museum was once a vacant Kmart but has now been turned into an exterior spray painted in hot pink with large Spears murals welcoming fans in.
If the pink building wasn’t enough, all 80 parking spots are also painted pink.
Prices to enter start at $59.50 and can go up to $64.50 during peak hours.
“There are people that have flown in from the East Coast and Europe and there’s a lot of local people as well. Obviously this (pop-up) is the first of its kind and Britney’s fans are global,” says Delson to CNN about the type of fans that have been visiting.
Venturing through the museum starts off with the classroom set up which is inspired by the 1998 music video for “…Baby One More Time.”
The other rooms pay homage to hits like “Oops!… I Did It Again”, “Toxic”, and “Womanizer.” There are also banners reminding us of the superstar’s accomplishments with one reading: “OVER 25 MILLION ALBUMS SOLD WORLDWIDE.”
The coolest thing about The Zone is being able to scan your Zone wristband upon entrance which activates a camera that will record you performing choreography.
At the end of your visit, your performance will be sent to you via email.
You can purchase Britney Spears paraphernalia in the gift store lobby area as well as view tour and video costumes donated by Spears herself.
The pop-up runs from now until April 26th.
