Madrid's Sweet Space Museum is like a real-life Willy Wonka chocolate factory

Who else really wants to go?

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is undoubtedly the best film ever made about sweets and chocolate. It shows a place many of us can only dream of. But now, there's one in Madrid... sort of.

Welcome to Madrid's Sweet Space Museum – a place where candy enthusiasts can come together drool over tasty looking goods.

This permanent exhibit includes nine themed rooms, with interactive exhibitions you can smell, touch and taste. These range from candy floss palm trees to an ice-cream lab, and a lollipop waterfall. So far, pretty Willy Wonka if you ask us.

It's as much about food as it is about fashion, as the entire place features some incredible pieces of art. Fashion designer Ágatha Ruiz de la Prada has created a sugary-sweet vision of heaven and muralist Okuda San Miguel has built a slide into a parallel world. You can also find sugar clouds by Antonyo Marest, a ‘video-game rocket’ by Ivanna Gautier and a candy forest by Christian Escribá.

If this is somewhere you'd like to visit, you can find it within the upmarket ABC Serrano shopping centre in the Salamanca neighbourhood.

Tickets are on sale now ahead of its official opening in October.

Would you visit this sweet slice of heaven?
