An Insane Ice Cream Museum Is Opening In New York City

​It's like Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory, but real


If  you've ever dreamt of swimming in a pool of multi-coloured sprinkles or becoming part of a human ice-cream sundae (of course, you have), then you might want to book a one-way flight to New York City – right now.

This summer, the Museum of Ice Cream is popping up in the heart of the Meatpacking District to provide ice-cream and sugar lovers with a lickable experience like no other.


From 29 July to 31 August, the ice-cream obsessed museum will invite art/food enthusiasts to visit the museum and take part in interactive art installations.

It will house a swimmable rainbow 'sprinkle pool, an ice-cream scooper shaped see-saw, edible balloons and an immersive chocolate room (we don't exactly know what that entails but it sounds great).


The museum's website explains:

'Guests will swing on an ice cream sandwich made for two,seesaw on an ice cream scooper and find their match/favorite flavor on a custom app in Tinder Land.

'Visitors will indulge in an exclusive,one-of-a-kind ice cream tasting created by food futurist and overall rad scientist Dr. Irwin Adam, founder of Future Food Studio. Visual designs from renowned NYC artists will serve as the cherry on top of this modern, whimsical urban ice cream playground.'


Reserved tickets cost just £14 per person or £23 for two – including ice cream, of course.

That's it, we're off to the Big (Toffee)Apple.
