Summer just got a little sweeter.
NYC’s museum completely dedicated to ice cream is officially back open!
The Museum of Ice Cream started as a series of pop-ups, and was so popular that it came to NYC permanently last December. After being closed since March due to COVID-19, you can officially indulge your sweet tooth once again.
The museum is full of multi-sensory installations, and some have had a little bit of a makeover because of pandemic safety measures. But it still looks like a deliciously fun time!
Feast on a spread of the sweetest treats in the Oh Yeah Room (all experience treats will be served to-go in accordance with government regulations, and must be consumed in designated spaces outside):
Take a ride in the NY Celestial Subway, featuring state-of-the-art immersive technology:
Or make a splash at their iconic Sprinkle Pool, which has been “completely revamped.” They say there will be no more swimming, but promise it will be “just as exciting.” From some hints on social media, it looks like you can still walk across the pool!
There is also a brand new bar and alcohol service, complete with ice cream cocktails. All service is outdoors, with a delectable selection of craft cocktails and boozy shakes.
And, for the first time ever, the Museum has in-person ice cream making workshops! You’ll learn about the history of ice cream and make your very own flavor from scratch. The one-hour workshop is led by scoop masters who will walk you through every delicious step of the way.
Museum of Ice Cream’s NYC flagship is officially back open Thursdays-Sundays from 10am to 5pm (closed Monday-Wednesday). It is located at 558 Broadway in SoHo. Face masks are required, along with temperature checks at the door.
