This is the most funny exhibition, I have ever visited: The Egg House, an egg-themed pop-up maze and home of “Ellis the egg” first was a hit in New York City before it hatched in Shanghai this summer. Definitely not only a playground for kids!

The interactive installations and colourful exhibits make it high-end instagrammable from entering to exit. Not only because it allows its visitors to jump into the balls pool, sit at the oversized toilet bowl or in the XXL egg box.

I went there last weekend and took lots of pictures. Some of course you can find on my Instagram account. But this wonderful place needs some space here as well, don’t you agree?

The Egg House will still be open until Thursday, Octobe 18th. And you can find it conveniently on the 3rd floor of Joy City, a huge state-of-the-art mall, actually worth-a-visit for itself.
