The inimitable Museum of Ice Cream is coming to the Meatpacking District for one month this summer, pledging to deliver a "lick-able, likeable, shareable ice cream-centric experience" through the end of August.
The delectably creative establishment will set up shop at 100 Gansevoort Street, a few steps from the High Line entrance.
Curated by "a collective of ice cream obsessed designer, artists and friends," according to a release, the interactive museum features a swimmable rainbow "sprinkle" pool, edible balloons, an immersive chocolate room and a collaborate massive ice cream sundae.
Anyone who visits the museum, which will be open every day of the week but Tuesday from July 29 to Aug. 31, can seesaw on an ice cream scooper or swing on an ice cream sandwich built for two.
The museum will offer a "scoop of the week" that will include "ice cream creations by some of the city's most beloved arbiters of cool treats, including Black Tap, Odd Fellows Ice Cream Co., and more," says the website.
Admission, which includes ice cream, for one adult is $18. Admission for two adults plus ice cream is $30. Children younger than age 10 and senior citizens get a discount ($12). And anyone who shows up opening day between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. gets free admission and ice cream.
Tickets are available for online reservation on the museum's website.
