An Exciting Beginning

Nestled in the archways of London’s Old Billingsgate Walk, the Balloon Museum is a place of wonder and curiosity. As I entered this inflatable wonderland, I was greeted by a burst of colours and shapes, each balloon telling a story of emotion. Joined by my friend Donatella, we explored the range of feelings guided by the museum’s creators.

A Journey Through Emotions: From Happiness to Anxiety

As we walked through the museum’s winding paths, we encountered a variety of emotions, each exhibit a vivid experience. From the joyful “Electric Moons” to the anxious oversized balloon rabbits, Emotion Air captures the complexities of feelings. The exhibits, though different, come together to tell a story, inviting us to think and feel.

Hyperfeeling: Diving into Emotions

At the heart of Emotion Air is Hyperfeeling, a large pool of plastic balls that reflects our emotions. Here, amongst the colourful balls, visitors are encouraged to explore their feelings, both good and bad. Watching the emotions projected onto a descending ball, I felt connected to others, sharing our feelings together.

Balloon Street: Where Imagination Rules

As our journey ended, we reached Balloon Street, a fun place for photos. From a balloon-filled phone box to a living room made of balloons, this area shows the museum’s commitment to fun. Enjoying a treat amongst the balloons, I thought about the joy of art and shared experiences.


What People Think: Different Opinions

While many people love Emotion Air for its creativity, others have concerns about the high price and crowds. Some enjoy its family-friendly atmosphere and opportunities for great photos. Others worry that it’s too commercial and loses its emotional impact.


More Than Just Balloons

Leaving Emotion Air behind, my bestie Donatella and I felt filled with memories of fun and laughter. Thinking about the power of art to connect us, I appreciated the museum’s role in bringing people together. If you’re in London before 18th February (2024), don’t miss this chance for an unforgettable adventure.
