Not knowing what to expect, I had assumed that the “Museum Of Ice Cream” would be somewhere I’d probably learn more about “ice cream”. I love eating ice cream, but didn’t know much about its origins. And I love museums. So I kind of expected a vague combination of the two. What I did not expect was the colors and the fun – it is interactive, engaging and much shorter / smaller than what I would have expected from a “museum”.
The Museum of Ice Cream is a moving / gypsy museum and might be headed to your city next! Check out their website to stay in the loop about where they’re arriving next and sign up for updates to purchase tickets – tickets sell out FAST and the place tends to be booked at least 2-3 months in advance. ( They only take in limited number of people at one time of course – I don’t think you’d enjoy the place as much if there were too many people – because you wouldn’t be able to take any photos! And you HAVE to go if you want photos. I was literally DEAD from all the walking and the touring around San Francisco, but I HAD to go see the Museum of Ice Cream before I headed back to Delhi. Luckily, I also had great company! Thank you for all the photos of me Auditya! )
There’s a lot of pink and lot of colors and there’s also a lot of candy and ice cream and sweets. They layout changes as they move locations though, so you might not see any of the stuff I got to see. But fun is guaranteed. And it’s not just for kids – I did see kids there but the majority of the visitors were adults like me! ( It is debatable whether I qualify as an adult though. ) Another great thing was that the portions of ice-cream / candy / etc were tiny. So, while I completely try my best to avoid eating sugar, I was able to eat everything without feeling like a criminal. Sure I still probably crossed my daily sugar dose limit, but once in a while it’s all cool.
A little birdie tells me that the Museum Of Ice Cream is headed to India too!
