Museum Of Ice Cream


If you’re looking for new ways to keep your Instagram account looking fly, or maybe you need a new colorful adventure to document on Snapchat, keep reading.

Opening on Gansevoort Street, just a stone’s throw from the Whitney Museum, the Museum of Ice Cream will welcome ice cream-obsessed visitors from July 29 through August 31. So for only a month, people. The whimsical, interactive exhibit will be curated by designers, artists and friends and include an immersive chocolate room, a rainbow sprinkle swimming pool, balloons you can eat and an enormous, massive ice cream sundae. Zany attractions, indeed! You’ll also get an ice cream tasting from a “food futurist.” So, basically, it’s Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory.

What is the Museum of Ice Cream, you ask?

It’s basically a frozen dessert fanatic’s dream.

If you’re interested in the actual treats instead of the activities, do not worry. A custom app will allow guests to find their best match. Kinda like Tinder, only featuring ice cream flavors instead, which is far more promising.


Take the museum’s word for it. It’s going to be a

lick-able, likeable, shareable ice cream-centric experience

Perhaps second-most enticing to the sprinkle pool will be the Future Food Studio, where visitors can taste ice cream created by food futurist Dr. Irwin Adam. Make sure to check out the “scoop of the week” tasting, included in admissions tickets. This will feature ice creams from Black Tap, OddFellows, and other staples of New York City’s ice cream scene.

If you’ll be in the area, you can reserve tickets for $18 per person or $30 for two people — ice cream included, of course. Kids under 10 and senior citizens can get in for $10.

It’s open six days a week—every day but Tuesday—from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. (except on Sundays, when it’ll stop scooping at 8 p.m.).
