The Museum of Ice Cream Is a Delicious Playground for Adults

There's a swimming pool of sprinkles.

Get ready for ice cream heaven.
Get ready for ice cream heaven.

It might be mid-summer, but the race for a bikini body lives on. After all, if you have yet to procure your perfect flotation device selfie, there’s still time to hit numerous boutique work out classes until you finally strike the right pose. Unfortunately, a new Museum of Ice Cream is popping up in the Meatpacking District to ruin your #goals.

The Museum will be at 100 Gansevoort Street with a total ice cream experience, open through August. Six days a week, revelers can walk off their cones at the nearby Whitney Museum or on the always-crowded High Line. It will be curated by designers, artists and friends and include a rainbow sprinkle swimming pool (take some advice from Kendrick Lamar and dive in), balloons you can eat and an enormous, massive ice cream sundae. There will also be an ice cream sandwich swing fit for two–how romantic–and an ice cream scooper seesaw, making it a playground fit for grown up children. If you’re far more interested in the actual treats instead of the activities, never fear. A custom app will allow guests to find their best match, à la Tinder, only featuring ice cream flavors instead, which is far more promising.

If custom flavors aren’t enough to entice you, there will also be an exclusive ice cream tasting by Dr. Irwin Adam, the founder of Future Food Studio. Black Tap, known for their ornate, overloaded milkshakes, and OddFellows will also make appearances. Tickets are already available and the playground opens on July 29, so prepare now for the coolest treat this summer. The Museum of Ice Cream Is a Delicious Playground for Adults
