This was my first time in Utah, which I found a bit ironic given I lived in Phoenix for 7 years. Nonetheless, I was excited to visit a new state and see some new things. The week before I left for Utah, I asked my IG followers what I should do while I was there. One of my blogger friends, Sandy, suggested I visit the Hall of Breakfast. I checked out their IG page and it looked so darn cute, I added it to the top of my site-seeing list.
I reached out to them before I arrived asking if they’d let me visit, and they kindly provided me access to the museum. You guys, I’m SO glad I visited! I seriously can’t even describe to you how much fun I had. Although I was alone (work travel can be lonely), I seriously had the most fun 2 hours I’ve had in a long time. I felt like I was a kid, for the first time in a long time.
When I first arrived, the front desk attendant greeted me so friendlily and offered me a button (I chose the one with the donut, duh). He offered to take pictures for me, so I had to pose with the adorable flamingo. Then he led me into the first room, which had a giant refrigerator door to walk through – it was teal, I loved it.
The thing I loved most about the Hall of Breakfast is that each room is unique and distinct. Each individual room transports you into a breakfast wonderland. I wish I could describe to you just how special this experience was. (Note, the Hall of Breakfast is not paying me for this post. I just loved it so much I had to share it with you!).
The artistic side of me really appreciated all the art that was embedded within the experience. The sculptures were also created in such a way that you could really become part of the experience. I felt like I was a part of the art, so to speak. The space allowed for so many cool photo opportunities – I guess it really is part of the IG generation. (Is that a term or should I copyright it?).
Anyway, probably my favorite room was the one with the confetti or the eggs. I love the egg room because there were these super cool toast paintings. I also loved the confetti room because of these breakfast cereal paintings. After I posted that picture on IG, the artist – Jesse Draper – actually reached out to me. I told him how much I loved them and he asked which one I like best. I told him the honey smacks frog and he told me he is based on Flava Flav, which made me love it even more.
If you are in Utah while it’s still up, or get the chance to visit it in it’s next city (I have no doubt it will make a tour – it’s that special), you need to check it out. The Hall of Breakfast didn’t disappoint. In fact, it was the most fun I’ve had at a museum, maybe ever. This is saying a lot since I’ve visited probably 100 museums all over the world for my day job. This place was truly special.
