Can you imagine a Museum of Happiness? This one of a kind place in London is more than awesome
With an aim to spread happiness, kindness and bring smiles to the millions of faces, an idea sparked in the minds of Shamash Alidina and Victoria Johnson – to set up a Museum of Happiness, which got its final shape in London.
The Museum of Happiness is a nonprofit organization and had no permanent location. The volunteer team had organized pop-up events, classes, and workshops for drop-in participation. At the Museum of Happiness people of all ages and backgrounds can learn more about the essence of happiness and well-being.
At the Museum of Happiness we offer tangible, science-based tools you can implement into your everyday lives. Our society needs such physical spaces like a Museum of Happiness to explore this vital skill, emotion and state of being in a secular way. Most importantly, we can run initiatives to bring people together to create friendships, have fun and find balance in a city of chaos, regardless of your background or belief system, says the team.
The happiness crew also hosts workshops like mindfulness origami, laughing yoga, ukulele lessons, art, and dancing. The museum team hopes to plan several outreach programs that can work in accordance with homeless shelters, nursing homes, hospitals, schools, and youth centers.
