This October, Williamsburg will welcome the newest pizza parlor to its streets — but this one comes with an attached museum.

The Museum of Pizza, scheduled to open as a pop-up on Oct. 13 at The William Vale hotel, will be part slice shop, part exhibition, according to amNewYork. Exhibits will include an interactive history of pizza and a psychedelic pizza party, along with artist-designed rooms reminiscent of Refinery29’s 29Rooms activation, with Instagram-ready themes ranging from “Pizza Library” to “The Pizza Vortex.”

Fondly nicknamed “MoPi,” the project hopes to balance “the ‘museum’ aspect with the magic of pizza to disrupt the expectations of what a pop-up can be,” founder Kareem Rahma said.   

The Museum of Pizza will be open Oct. 13 to Oct. 28, Tuesdays through Sundays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
