Museum of Ice Cream, San Francisco

Pinkmas with Nicole

I’ll open this post off by stating that I’m not the biggest fan of ice cream, but I’m always up for a creative adventure. On Friday, Nicole and I decided to go to the Museum of Ice Cream. I didn’t learn much about ice cream nor its history, but I certainly experienced an immense amount of joy. The entire museum was a pink-themed sugar wonderland. The experience felt more like an interactive exhibit than a museum. As a participant, you walked through various rooms where you partook in a creative endeavor and a treat was offered. Per their website,

“Museum of Ice Cream transforms concepts and dreams into spaces that provoke imagination and creativity. MOIC is designed to be a culturally inclusive environment and community, inspiring human connection and through the universal power of ice cream. Museum of Ice Cream is a Figure8 brand.

We believe in creating beautiful and shareable environments that foster IRL interaction and URL connections, providing fun, multi-sensorial expressions of ice cream that cater to the appetites of our generation. With 4 locations under our belt, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Miami, MOIC is just getting started.” {Source}

One of the rooms contained a camera to capture a filtered Boomerang like video that you could email to yourself. Video below:

At the Unicorn Stable – a small opening allowed you into a room covered in pieces of mirror:


After you went through the multiple rooms, you ended the experience in a room with a large sprinkle pool (photographed below), a slide, and a diving board. This room also contained a two swings that matched with the overall pink-theme (photographed below).

The room with most information about ice cream was called Marye’s Diner. In this part of the exhibit, you received a menu that contained tidbits of information about ice cream. After reviewing the “menu”, you’d share your favorite ice cream fact with the person behind the counter in exchange for a mini strawberry milkshake. My favorite part of this room was the pink jukebox, surrounded by Christmas trees, playing tunes.
