While the Museum of Ice Cream is less of a “museum” and more of an immersive experience, it is no less fascinating.
Having opened on April 22, 2017, the location for this year’s museum moves from New York to Los Angeles to provide its West Coast guests with a one-of-a-kind early summer event. The pop-up experience features different rooms that appeal to the senses.
Some of the fun features of the museum include a mint chocolate chip “grow room” and the now famous “sprinkle pool” from last year’s New York experience that is filled with sprinkles for guests to dive into. Other themed rooms will be gummy bear, giant (fake) popsicle, and (fake) banana related.
While many of these room’s features will not be edible, the museum does serve foods such as breakfast-themed ice cream sandwiches, cookie dough, and mint macarons.
The Museum of Ice Cream was originally scheduled to be open until the end of May, but with tickets selling out so quickly the event was extended through the month of June and into part of July, which is National Ice Cream Month. After the Los Angeles dates wrap up, the Museum of Ice Cream will move on to other cities in the U.S.
