An Ice Cream Museum Is Coming to New York City

And you should probably get your tickets now

In just a few short weeks New York City's Meatpacking District will become home to the Museum of Ice Cream, a month-long exhibit that is described as “a lick-able, likeable, shareable ice cream-centric experience,” according to a release.

The museum will be located at 100 Gansevoort Street, near the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Gansevoort Street entrance to the High Line.

It is curated by “ice cream obsessed designers, artists, and friends,” and features interactive exhibits, such as a swimmable rainbow ‘sprinkle’ pool, edible balloons, an immersive chocolate room, and a collaborative, massive ice cream sundae.

Visitors will have the opportunity to indulge in a one-of-a-kind ice cream tasting created by Dr. Irwin Adam, founder of Future Food Studio.

The price of admission covers the museum, tastings, and the Scoop of the Week, a featured ice cream creation by the likes of Black Tap and OddFellows Ice Cream Co.

Tickets are available now, and the museum officially on Friday, July 29. Visitors who arrive between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on opening day will enjoy free admission and ice cream. The pop-up runs through August 31, 2016.
