Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, April 30, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Summer is coming sooner than expected to select markets across the United States with the announcement of the Dominican Republic POP Funhouse museum.
Hosted by the Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism (MITUR), the POP Funhouse is a play on the airport code for Puerto Plata (POP), one of the truly unique and hidden gems of Dominican Republic. The experiential installation will debut in Miami on May 16, and travel to four cities before wrapping in Boston on June 10.
“We understand that travelers today are looking for new and underexplored areas to visit during limited vacation time. Authentic destinations offer the luxury and relaxation they crave along with opportunities for cultural immersion and adventure,” said Magaly Toribio, Marketing Advisor for the Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism. “Puerto Plata offers all of this and more, so we wanted to create a fun and engaging activation to promote one of our country’s best kept secrets with consumers in a convenient and easily accessible way.”
At POP Funhouse guests are invited to make their way through eight photo-friendly and individually curated rooms, designed to represent top attractions of Puerto Plata and inspire travel. Room themes include:
To further encourage attendance to this fun and free installation, the POP Funhouse will be doing a trip giveaway in every market. Attendees simply need to post a picture of them at any of the rooms to Instagram and tag @GoDomRep in the caption and use the hashtag #POPFunhouse for the chance to win an all-inclusive trip for two to Puerto Plata.
The installation is operated on a first come, first served basis, and the line will cut off 45-minutes prior to closing each night, so getting there early is recommended. Official dates and hours of operation are as follows:
Wynwood Soho Studios; Miami, FL
Sterling Bay; Chicago, IL
West Edge at the Chelsea Market; New York, NY
Cyclorama at Boston Center for the Arts; Boston, MA
