Slurp The Summer Away at the Museum Of Ice Cream (You Read That Right)
All I want to do all day right now is eat ice cream. So when everyone in my world started buzzing about the Museum of Ice Cream, I had to check it out. It looks AMAZING! In a cruel twist of fate, the event seems to be sold out. But I’m the first to support a brilliant and obviously awesome concept like this one. So, in hopes that they extend their first run, I’m thrilled to post their full press release. Slurp it up! ~Karen Seiger, Markets of New York City

July 2016 New York – Museum of Ice Cream will pop up in the heart of the Meatpacking District at 100 Gansevoort Street with a lick-able, likeable, shareable ice cream-centric experience throughout August. Museum of Ice Cream will live just a few scoops from the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Gansevoort Street entrance to the High Line, welcoming guests six days a week to enjoy a sweetescape from the summer heat.
Museum of Ice Cream is curated by a collective of ice cream obsessed designers, artists, and friends. Museum of Ice Cream interactive highlights include a swimmable rainbow ‘sprinkle’ pool, edible balloons, an immersive chocolate room and a collaborative massive ice cream sundae. Guests will swing on an ice cream sandwich made for two, seesaw on an ice cream scooper and find their match/favorite flavor on a custom app in Tinder Land. Visitors will indulge in an exclusive, one-of-a-kind ice cream tasting created by food futurist and overall rad scientist Dr. Irwin Adam, founder of Future Food Studio. Visual designs from renowned NYC artists will serve as the cherry on top of this modern, whimsical urban ice cream playground.
Scoop of the Week, presented by Museum of Ice Cream, features ice cream creations by some of the city’s most beloved arbiters of cool treats, including Black Tap, OddFellows Ice Cream Co., and more. All visitors – singles, couples, families, friends – will swoon on some frozen goodness courtesy of Museum of Ice Cream’s dreamy Scoop of the Week lineup (tastings included in the price of admission).
