After a successful run in New York, The Museum of Ice Cream is coming to Los Angeles. Opening this Saturday and running through May 29, LA ice cream fans will get the chance to dip their toes in the sprinkle pool, made with 100 million sprinkles created out of antimicrobial plastics. This colorful mecca of ice cream daydreams, located in LA’s Arts District, is screaming for photo opportunities.

A recent press release from the museum says the LA pop-up will be four times as large as the original NYC location, which sold out in five days and attracted a waitlist of over 200,000 hopeful visitors. The Los Angeles museum will include 10 completely reimagined installations, such as a “banana split” comprised of 10 thousand “bananas,” a mint “grow house,” a room dedicated to California, a melted popsicle jungle and more.

The Museum of Ice Cream, founded and creative directed by Maryellis Bunn, is the place where whimsical ideas and products are transformed into real life experiences. Its mission is to design environments that bring people together and provoke imagination.

Admission to the LA installation is $29 per adult but comes with two ice creams per guest from notable local purveyors. Throughout its residency, the Museum will showcase on rotation one “scoop of the week” from California creameries including McConnell’s, Salt & Straw, Coolhaus x Cuisinart and CREAM. Times are filling up fast so book your tickets online here now. For the rest of the country, no need for #fomo – the Museum of Ice Cream will be opening in new locations this year and more in 2018.
