Happy Friday!! It's a special time here in LA...the Museum of Ice Cream is here until the August! They extended their stay and by the time I was getting tickets, everything was almost sold out. Luckily, I was able to snag some tickets for me and friends. Jess also got to visit the Museum of Ice Cream so be sure to check out Jess’s post as well!
It is officially summer and it is sooo hot down here in Southern California. Though I am a proud Los Angeles resident, I'm reminded every summer of the reason I don't entirely love living here. But thank God for swimming pools (though I hate swimming), air conditioning, and ice cream.
The Museum of Ice Cream was founded by a 25-year-old Laguna Beach native, Maryellis Bunn. It's an art installation of what she loves most: ice cream. It started out in New York but was so popular, that it decided to grace Los Angeles with its presence from May to August. If you haven't seen this on Facebook or Instagram by now, you're probably living under a rock (kidding).
For those of you who are not familiar with the Museum of Ice Cream, don't be fooled by the name. Here's what not to expect:
🍦 The history of ice cream
🍦 Paintings of ice cream
🍦 Ivory sculptures of ice cream
But here's what you should actually expect:
🍦 Ice creamed themed art installations
🍦 Samples of ice cream and other sweets
🍦 Lots of fun, dance-inducing music
🍦 Grown ups acting like children
🍦 A pool full of plastic sprinkles
Every room has a theme where you can also sample ice cream from different local ice cream shops. Everything is really cute and there's a photo op at literally every wall. It's a great place to go with friends though it is very, very crowded as you can imagine. As I mentioned before, there's loud and fun music playing and all the MOIC employees have a great energy. It's all about having fun, letting your inner child out, and at one point, I had to awkwardly krump in order to get gummy bears.
But enough chit chat, here are some of my favorite shots:
Thanks for checking out my post! Apparently they're planning to open one in San Francisco and Miami by the end of this year so hopefully you get a chance to visit!
P.S. Unfortunately, I wasn't there the same day as Beyoncé but I did happen to see Jamie King! I loved her on Hart of Dixie and it's just surreal to see anyone you see on TV in real life.
