Scoop of the Week – A Museum of Ice Cream is opening in the Meatpacking District. It’s not really a museum. It’s really an ice cream store with unusual flavors and interactive displays and settings, with an admission fee that includes ice cream tastes.
According to Edible Manhattan, the Museum of Ice Cream is curated by a collective of ice cream obsessed designers, artists, and friends, and features a swimmable rainbow ‘sprinkle’ pool, edible balloons, an immersive chocolate room and a collaborative massive ice cream sundae.
You’ll be able to swing on an ice cream sandwich made for two, seesaw on an ice cream scooper and find your perfect flavor match on a custom app in Tinder Land and indulge in a , one-of-a-kind ice cream tasting created by food futurist Dr. Irwin Adam, founder of Future Food Studio.
There’s a Scoop of the Week, with ice cream creations by some of the city’s most beloved arbiters of cool treats, including Black Tap, OddFellows Ice Cream Co. Tastings are included in the price of admission, which is $18 for adults ($30 for a couple) and $12 for kids and seniors.
The Museum of Ice Cream opens Friday, July 29, at 100 Gansevoort Street, a few scoops from the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Gansevoort Street entrance to the High Line. And just like ice cream, it melts down. This pop-up ice cream experience is through August 31 only.
