A Giant Beach-Themed Ball Pit Is The Only Thing You Need Right Now


Now, you can have all of the perks of the beach without having to go outside, get wet, deal with sand or worry about the sun.

The pseudo waterfront opened on July 4, and it will run until September 7.

If you're a germaphobe, rest assured the balls are treated with an anti-bacterial coating and are cleaned every night.

Admission to the museum is $16 for adults and $13 children or, if you're a museum member, $10 for adults and $5 for children.

On Wednesday nights, The BEACH even stays open late for “adult swim time.”

This exhibit was literally made for people who have GoPro head straps.
