Out and About: Museum of Ice Cream

January 25, 2018

I scream. You scream … We all scream for ice cream, amirite?! That’s why the Museum of Ice Cream is so popular. My guy and I went on a date night there last month, and it was so much fun! Click through the slideshow for a glimpse inside.

From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with sweet treats and merriment. The entire museum is one big photo opp, as I’m sure you’ve discovered via Instagram posts and Snapchat Stories. Each room featured a different installation that was full of whimsy and surprise. My favorite room was the one with the ginormous gummy bears. There were jams playing, lighting that changed by the minute, disco balls hanging from the ceiling and, most importantly, a vat full of gummy bears that you could nibble on while there. Heck, I’d rent that space out for a birthday party if I could. But I also was a fan of the swings by the banana room, the huge popsicles melting down the walls and the enormous ice cream sandwich that doubled as a swing. I did not, however, dive into the pool full of sprinkles. The museum boasts designing close to 100 million of those tiny, plastic suckers. I know they’re fake and antimicrobial, but the thought of people’s toe jam and whatnot being interspersed among the sprinkles made my stomach turn. Also, those sprinkles get in allllll of the crevices. I went to the restroom and there were hella sprinkles on the floor. Yikes!

The museum also gets two thumbs up from the caliber of desserts we got to enjoy during our visit. We sampled Godiva chocolate, ice cream sammiches, mint chocolate chip mochi, soft-serve strawberry ice cream on a cone and more. Unfortunately, the Downtown Los Angeles location has closed until further notice as it relocates. However, the San Francisco and Miami museums are thriving. One of the clerks at the LA gift shop said there were different limited-edition pins for each location, so I’m tempted to visit the other sites. Have you been to any of the Museums of Ice Cream? Let me know what you thought of it in the comments section below.
