Balloon Museum London: Inside look at viral attraction's inflatable artworks

 Londoners can explore a world of inflatable wonders at the viral Balloon Museum.

If you haven't already seen the Balloon Museum all over your social media, here's a look inside London's latest viral spot.

Having opened in late December following the Christmas festivities, the gallery of inflatable wonders offers visitors a chance to journey through its collection of out-of-scale and interactive installations. 

The Balloon Museum website says the space showcases "specific works in which 'air' is a distinctive element" with a central focus on visitors' experience. Its current exhibition, Emotion Air, aims to capture the relationship between art and emotions through inflatable art and has almost 20 exhibits for guests to explore.

Set in Old Billingsgate in the City of London, the museum is right by London Bridge meaning visitors can easily get to the spot via the city's underground. In particular it is sandwiched between Monument and Tower Hill tube stations which are both on the Circle and District lines.

Those eager to explore for themselves can book a visit on the Balloon Museum website. Adult tickets are £29, while child tickets are £18, excluding booking fees. A family ticket including two adults and children is just £21.

From a massive ball pit to many Instagram-able photo ops, Londoners are sure to lose themselves in the beguiling mix of exhibits.

Here's a peek inside the Balloon Museum's current inflatable artworks on show.
