A 'Museum of Happiness' is now open to visitors in the Saudi Arabian capital of Riyadh. The ideal place to release stress and despair, the museum offers a host of experiences to make guests happy.

The imaginary world created inside the new attraction changes the concept of a museum, according to the people who have already toured the place. Riyadh's Happiness Museum is probably the first such destination where multisensory installations give visitors an otherworldly feeling.

There are numerous interesting exhibits and spaces meant to boost one's spirits as well as relax the mind in the museum, which spreads across an area of 1,300 square metres. A host of activities for people of all ages are arranged in the interiors, comprising several rooms and corners. Each of these spots, including the selfie corner, creates joy. While the walls of the museum are given yellow and pink colours, every space in the interiors - from floor to roof – is designed thoughtfully to create mirth. The museum also has a ‘Happiness café’ and a gift shop.

Known as 'Mithaf assa-aada' in Arabic, the Happiness Museum can be visited only by booking tickets online. All COVID-19 precautions, including the wearing of masks, are followed during entry. A visit to the Museum of Happiness is recommended as it is a source of positive energy in the present times of isolation due to social distancing.
