The Museum of Food and Drink (MOFAD), New York City’s first museum dedicated to food with exhibits you can actually eat, has opened its anticipated MOFAD Lab in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood. The multisensory debut exhibit is entitled Flavor: Making It and Faking It. MOFAD describes the exhibit as “a tasting and smelling adventure that provokes the senses, reveals a critically important part of the food industry, and raises questions about what ‘natural’ and ‘artificial’ really mean.” A unique-sounding part of the exhibit called the Smell Synth allows guests to create over 500,000 different smells by combining 19 aroma compounds.

Advance reservations are recommended but not required. Purchase tickets and learn more about the inaugural exhibit, on show until Feb. 28, 2016, here.
