A sneak peak into the colorful and delicious world of the Museum of Ice Cream in Los Angeles!

For our most recent LA with Kids, we visited the one-of-a-kind, Museum of Ice Cream! It made it’s way to LA after a very successful pop-up in New York and we are SO happy it’s here for a few months!

I dreamed of a place like this as a kid…a real-life Willy Wonka factory filled with the most imaginative rooms and delicious ice cream treats! Romeo was in heaven, although it’s debatable who liked it better!!

The very first room is ALL pink with hanging phones that provide you with an insight into the museum and ice cream when you take a listen!

Mint Room

We loved the mint room! It smelled amazing and they used cocoa nibs to grow the mint. They also served the yummiest mint mochi ice cream!

This room was so fun! It was a large room with giant popsicles!

Each room was created by a different artist, this one was very cool!

Sprinkle Pool

This is probably the most popular room at the Museum of Ice Cream! It’s a pool filled with sprinkles! Of course, they’re faux sprinkles but it’s so much fun to play with and toss around. My kids LOVED every minute of it!

The tiny sprinkles are anti-bacterial and so much fun to play in.
