There are few things I love more than museums. It’s the perfect year-round activity that you will find me enjoying quite often. I also really love ice cream. So you can probably imagine that the combination of such things would make me most excited. And you would be oh so right. Last week, I was given the opportunity to go to the Museum of Ice Cream with my family and some friends for my Dad’s birthday. Yep. THE MUSEUM OF ICE CREAM. Even the small act of typing those words still manages to get me excited.
I had seen so many pictures of this museum, so I was beyond ready to go and take a look at it myself! The museum is here in NYC for the Summer, but tickets have been sold out for months. From ice-cream sandwich swings, to a giant pool of sprinkles, it was easy to see why everyone had been raving about it! This place literally felt like Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory with edible balloons, candy-themed decorations, and a large array of ice cream samples. You better believe I was in my happy place.
We were greeted at the door by boysenberry ice cream with crushed biscuit, a situation I’m still raving about honestly.
From there, we moved into the room with the edible balloons. The balloon itself was made purely of sugar, but was filled with helium, causing for a room filled with people with high-pitched voices. Now that I think about it, it probably wasn’t the healthiest for me to be consuming as many of these as I did. But hey, it was so worth it.
After participating in building the worlds largest ice cream sundae, and walking through a chocolate wonderland of sorts, the time had come for us to venture into the headline attraction of the sprinkle pool. This thing was insane. Watching the kids (and adults) frolic in this pool was more entertainment than I ever could of imagined.
I’m still finding it hard to believe that this place exists, and would like to send my deepest gratitude to whoever decided to make it. I had so much fun and it was such a great way to spend the day with my Dad (a man who loves ice cream almost as much as I do), and I’m hoping it will be back next Summer! Be sure to sign up for ticket updates if you would like to go but haven’t got a ticket! Hope you have a great week.
