Museum Of Ice Cream

Friday we FINALLY had our “appointment” at the Museum Of Ice Cream in Los Angeles, I was so excited after missing out on tickets the first time around. I mean who DOESNT want to swim a pool of sprinkles and try different Ice Cream in each room?! It was CRAZY packed, and although we only got about 60 seconds in the sprinkle pool and we weren’t allowed to touch the bananas or popsicles, it was worth it.

When we first arrived they directed us to the “Garden” which was a really awesome place to await your turn for your walk through the Museum. They had a shaded picnic bench, hula hoops, tic tac toe (Ice cream shaped, obviously) and set ups for corn hole as well as giant Jenga. There was a lot of kids too, so this was a perfect place to let them burn off some energy.

Then it was time to wait in line to get in. The first thing you will see when you know you have gotten to the Museum Of Ice Cream is the pastel pink buildings. Dead giveaway you are in the right place. I swear if I have a brick house, I may just consider painting it pastel pink. This was where all the “Instagramming” began, and never ended. Pretty sure this entire Museum was centered around Insta-Worthy shots. I would say they nailed it.

First stop: Dove Chocolates. This is the very first room you walk into and where they give you the speech to not touch the bananas or the popsicles… ( I may have touched the bananas) But the wall in this room was something out of a Katy Perry music video. The walls were covered in fake sweets in the design of a wallpaper. It made me really hungry for desert.

Next stop is the Pink Telephone room. Where they make you listen to the Ice Cream man on the phone. I got a defective telephone so I couldn’t tell you what he was saying… but it was a super rad idea! And it made it that much more exciting to get into the next room.

The first room we got ice cream in was the “VenICE Cream” & Hollywood one. This ice cream was my FAVORITE. I of course didn’t snap a photo of it before it was devoured (and quickly melting because it was pretty warm in there that day) but it was from Salt & Straw. It was a Salted Carmel ice cream served in a Salt & Straw cup. I also didn’t get a photo of the Hollywood Ice Cream Sign wall, because there was not a second that there wasn’t people in front of it taking photos, but I did get a snapshot of my favorite Hollywood “star” in the room. They had others like “Funfetti Wap” and “Marilyn Mintroe”.

Then it was time for the Scratch & Sniff Banana wall. (Yes they really are scratch and sniff!) Que important Insta photo opp for every single person in the building. This corner got so flooded with people waiting to snap a photo, it was crazy! But also understandble… I mean how cute is it?!

Then you get to the HANGING BANANA ROOM. This room was probably my favorite. (besides the sprinkle pool, of course) It makes you want to bust out in the Gwen Stefani banana song.

Who here loves mint chocolate chip? Because this girl does. In this room they are growing mint leaves infused with actual chocolate. Its something straight out of Willy Wonkas Chocolate Factory. The entire room smells delicious. In this room you get to sample Mint Chocolate Mochi ice cream.

Upon leaving the Mint Chocolate room you are greeted by citrus walls and pink mirrors, followed by an all white hallway display of art.

Then comes the room Sparrow was the most upset over. The Giant Popsicles! You may see pictures of people laying on these in some of the photos with the museum tagged in them, but this time they meant business with not touching the popsicles. They had security so sadly this is the only shot I got of them. They really need a kids jungle gym somewhere with these around.

Next was the Gummy Bears. Let me just say that they did a good job with hiring, because all of the staff was so much fun. We obviously got a handful of Gummy Bears here.

Okay this room… This room you sampled the weirdest “Ice Cream” I have ever had. I don’t even know how to describe it, so I wont ruin for you if you decide to go try it… but it was chocolate flavored. As you can see… It was black, and Sparrow liked it. (She was the only one haha)

FINALLY it was time for the Sprinkle pool! (Also need this in a kids play place by the way) It was so much fun, even though it was jam-packed full of people and we only got about 60 seconds to take off our shoes and get in. We may have broken the rules and played a little bit longer. I SAID MAY HAVE…

After the Sprinkle pool it was our very last Ice Cream stop in the gift shop where they have a big Ice Cream Sandwich swing, ping-pong, and all kinds of cutesy Ice Cream souvenirs. This ice cream sandwich was really good, and a “Museum Of Ice Cream Exclusive” It was two pink pancakes with a  frozen vanilla custard on the inside. They made it inside right then and there so we had to wait for them to whip ours up, and while we waited we did a little dance. Literally.
It was a very fun experience. It felt like it went by incredibly fast but everyone had fun and got great photos. Now next can they make a museum of wine… Just a suggestion? Haha juuust kidding. Kind of. Thanks for reading!
