Is your Instagram account missing color in these dull Autumn days? Look no further. Smile Safari in Brussels is a giant Instagram playground with lots of funky backgrounds, where you can get creative, strike a pose and be the star of the show!
First Instagram museum in Belgium
Situated at Tour and Taxis in Brussels, Smile Safari is the first pop-up Instagram museum in Belgium. The concept originated in America, where several Instagram museums are scattered throughout the country. Visitors can take perfect selfies in front of original, colorful backgrounds and share their photos on social media.
We had the opportunity to check out this new Instagram museum in Brussels. It was like entering Disney World for Instagrammers! There are about 30 different rooms, each with a different theme, vibe and colors. You can jump out of a cake, bathe in money, swing through the jungle, surf on a slice of pizza, and much more.
To be honest, we felt a bit uncomfortable at first, mostly because we’re better at taking photos than at striking poses, but this place made it so easy to act like a real Instagram model. Thanks to an amazing setting and great lighting, almost all photos came out stunning.
What should you wear?
If you’re wondering what to wear, you can either go for something neautral that matches all backgrounds... or take multiple outfits. There is a dressing room at the entrance, so you can easily change outfits whenever you see fit.
Get your smile on
The Instagram museum is best enjoyed with friends. One, for practical reasons because it’s not a selfie museum and you’ll need someone to help you take photos. And two, because together it’s so much more fun!
