The Museum of Ice Cream opened its doors to the West Coast this month claiming sunny Los Angeles as its second location. Stationed in downtown L.A.’s burgeoning arts district, Museum of Ice Cream takes visitors on an experiential ice cream journey of forbidden tastes.

Museum of Ice Cream launched in 2016 in New York City, selling out in five days and attracting a waitlist of over 200,000. The Los Angeles location is four times larger than the New York City incarnation and showcases 10 completely reimagined installations.

Ever Been Inside a Banana Split?

Interactive highlights include a “banana split” comprised of ten thousand “bananas”, a mint “grow house”, a room dedicated to California, a melted popsicle jungle and more. The iconic swimmable sprinkle pool returns filled with one hundred million sprinkles that were custom designed and produced by Museum of Ice Cream.

Visitors should come hungry. The Museum has curated the best selection of ice cream anywhere. Throughout its residency, the Museum will showcase on rotation one “scoop of the week” from coveted creameries in California including McConnell’s, Salt & Straw, Coolhaus, Cuisinart and CREAM. Additionally, there will be a special mochi ice cream tasting from My/Mo. DOVE® Chocolate brings the taste of their silky smooth chocolate. To heighten the olfactory and taste experience, the Museum worked with the scientists at International Flavors & Fragrances to develop ice cream inspired scents and flavors. All of these experiences lead to the unveiling of over 30 new shoppable ice cream products including custom sprinkles, scoopers, kadima, ping pong table and others.

The Museum of Ice Cream is open from April 22 until May 29 from 11am-10pm, Wednesday-Monday. Tickets include two curated ice cream tastings and surprise edible treats.

Ticket prices are $29 per person, $18 for children (3-12) and seniors (60+).
