Are you a FRIENDS show fan like me?  If so, you may want to check out The FRIENDS Experience traveling exhibit that is currently in Phoenix through May 6th. I saw Brad Perry having a blast on this tour on the Arizona Daily Mix show, so I had to check it out!

Just call me Rachel! On the The FRIENDS Experience traveling set.

I took my daughter to see it with me since she is in town for a few days. We had fun, learned some cool behind-the-scenes stuff, and laughed when we looked at our amusing pictures afterwards.

It was a last-minute decision so we didn’t have time to go all the way home to change so we are dressed casually.  The good news is that most of the other patrons were also dressed down making this a relaxing event to experience.

Part of the reason we laughed so hard is that I’m more the FRIENDS fan than my girl is, but she was a good sport and indulged her mom.  You can see the difference in enthusiasm in some of the photos…like this one that made us both crack up when we saw it later.  It was nice to get away from the stress and sadness in the world for 45 minutes as we went back in time to tour the traveling set of the iconic hit series that is still a fan favorite. Here’s our fun pictures of our little tour into the world that was Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Joey, and Phoebe. Yep, I’m yelling “PIVOT” and so are the energetic employees who took the picture.

The cool couch and fake fountain from the famous FRIENDS show open. This is the first photo opp available in the exhibit. FRIENDly employees are stationed at the different recreated sets to snap photos for you. Just hand them your phone, take your place and they take multiple shots for you at each different set stop. Fun! Keep scrolling to see the other cool set shots we took! 

From one of my favorite episodes! Who else loved this hilarious one about Joey and Chandler?

Chillaxin’ in Joey and Chandler’s favorite chairs. Love the Three Stooges in the background. This traveling exhibit did not leave out any details. Could we be more comfy?! 

Should we knock on Monica and Rachel’s door or Joey and Chandler’s? The traveling set looks just like the show we watched back in the day…and that many still stream today. It was impressive.

We chose Monica and Rachel’s apartment.

And we decided to stay for a while to get this sweet picture of me and my girl. 

Couldn’t leave without looking out the famous window. No sighting of ugly naked guy like the FRIENDS used to always see!

And we had to stop for coffee at Central Perk.

The other famous couch. The prop coffee cups are glued to the table. Otherwise, we would have hammed it up with the cups. Still so fun!

And I’m back at the coffee shop channeling Rachel Green.

Character costumes and other behind-the-scenes exhibits were interesting to see.
