The Funbox LA Pop-up selfie museum in the Westfield Santa Anita Mall is a colorful Instagram playground that any selfie-loving person can enjoy. Having visited similar pop-ups like the Ice Cream Museum and Happy Place in the past, we were excited to bring our little one to this limited-time location as well.
After our visit, we can happily say FUNBOX LA is a family-friendly pop-up where the kids can be more interactive and hands-on with some of the art installations. FUNBOX is well worth a visit if anyone in your family is addicted to Instagram.
About FUNBOX LA
Located near the mall’s food court FUNBOX LA has over 24 different art installations to enjoy. The maze-like layout has you moving through each location at your own pace. Our group got through the entire pop-up in about an hour, but you can stay as long as you want (BUT,
If you buy tickets for the latest part of the day you will only have 1 hour to finish) You just can’t backtrack into another room once you’ve moved forward.
Afterward, we walked out and grabbed some food and drinks at the food court. Kinda love that FUNBOX LA is in the mall. The location makes Funbox easy to find, provides plenty of parking and there are a ton of food options right when you exit. Win-win for everyone.
We purchased our tickets online for a Saturday morning visit with the idea we could get through the entire pop-up without having to wait in any lines. It worked. Our group of 10 had the pop-up pretty much ourselves and a few other smaller groups. Our almost 3-year-old daughter had a great time, and we moved at her pace. Of course, her favorites rooms were the more interactive timed rooms like the ball pit and the giant cereal bowl. But she also refused to leave the dance room where the floor would light up with each step. Her pure enjoyment and gigantic smile made the entire visit worth it for us.
FUNBOX isn’t as polished as other pop-ups we’ve visited in the past, but the cheaper ticket price is much better on the wallet! Trust me, your followers aren’t going to notice.
