With more museums than any other city in the U.S.A., it seems natural that Los Angeles (California) would need to start thinking outside the box when it started to add new additions to its roster. In the case of a new pop-up museum due to arrive, it seems they started thinking inside the cone, as Ice Cream will be the focus of the Museum of Ice Cream.
The concept first popped up in New York City in 2016, were it sold out in five days and say a waitlist of 200,000 people accumulate. To anticipate the demand, organisers have made it four times larger and will feature ten completely reimagined installations inside the museum’s walls.
Interactive highlights are said to include a “banana split” comprised of ten thousand “bananas”, a mint “grow house”, a room dedicated to California, a melted popsicle jungle and a swimmable sprinkle pool filled with one hundred million sprinkles that were custom designed and produced by the museum. This. Sounds. Amazing.
The pop-up will be open the Los Angeles’ Arts District from 22nd April until 29th May from 11am to 10pm, with doors open between Wednesday and Monday. In addition to entry, tickets to the museum include two curated ice cream tastings and surprise edible treats.
