BLEND goes to the FOMO Factory

There aren’t many museums out there where you can post, pose and play. In the heart of downtown Austin you’ll find a house with seven rooms known as the FOMO Factory. Many Austinites were skeptical of a museum made just for taking selfies but once you step inside, you’ll understand what all the hype is about.

The FOMO Factory is a pop-up shop that consists of multiple rooms full of toys, balloons, colorful walls, ball pits and swings. You’ll feel like a kid again as you make your way through the two-story house full of picture opportunities. Some of the themes throughout the FOMO Factory include vacation, school dance, playground, birthday and a gift shop. The gift shop has Snapple tea available to all guests and vegan ice cream is also served. In a society where Instagram has taken over the way we communicate to the outside world, the FOMO Factory is a brilliant play on our generations idea of fun.
