Museum of Ice Cream in NYC this August! #museumoficecream
We can’t wait to check this out! The museum will be open everyday except Tuesdays starting July 29 through August 31. From New York Eater:
A new museum dedicated to all things ice cream is popping up in the Meatpacking District in August — featuring art installations, history, ice cream samples, and an ice cream-themed playground of interactive exhibits like a life size pool of sprinkles. The Museum of Ice Cream, to pop up at 100 Gansevoort St., wants to be “a lick-able, likable, shareable ice cream-centric experience,” co-founder Maryellis Bunn says. “We’re creating this for people to really draw and embrace this idea of delight and indulgence,” she says.
Bunn, who used to work at Time Inc., and her co-founder Manish Vora, who works for start-up Lightbox, embarked on the passion project last year in part to fulfill Bunn’s childhood fantasy of swimming through a pool of sprinkles. “Through several iterations and constant searching throughout the world, I couldn’t find anything,” she says. “I decided to go ahead and build it myself.” The sprinkles in the pool at the museum won’t be real, but they’re made to look and feel exactly like the kind you eat on sundaes. “You’ll be able to fully immerse yourself in a pool of sprinkles,” she says.
