I’ve been to ALOT of pop up museums and I would have to say The Museum of Ice Cream in San Francisco was by far THE BEST!! From the moment you walk into this museum you feel like all your problems have just gone away, which WAS GREAT as experiences such as these are supposed to be an escape from the every day or traditional museum. What made it soo good you might ask? Well read on, I’ll tell you!
The Rooms - There were soo many different rooms and ALL of them were uniquely different. Loved Marye’s Diner for the 50s Soda Shop Feel. Their Word Room gave me a chance to express myself. The magical light in the Unicorn Room was soo pretty!! There was a Chocolate Mint Room that smelled just like mint!! The Circus Animal Cookie Room was too cute, loved that you could ride these nostalgic cookies!! And of course what would MOIC be without the infamous Sprinkle Pool (I literally left with sprinkles EVERYWHERE!!)! No detail was too small for the creators of the Museum of Ice Cream and it showed! There were no feelings of them just wanting to add in an extra room (which I have felt in other museums). Every room existed for a reason even their newest Circus Animal Cookie Room.
The People - Everyone who works at MOIC is brilliant, from the ticket taker to the gift shop cash register person. People TRULY make an experience even better and I didn’t even know I needed them to be apart of my experience before they just were. The rooms being soo uniquely different offered different personality types before entering a room. It was fun interacting with the “room guard” before being let in to PLAY in that particular room…they told stories, had you forget your problems, made you participate in silly animal sounds (I believe I said Cah Cawww to be let into the Gummy Bear Room), and truly made you apart of “The Show”.
The Treats - And of course you can’t go to MOIC without expecting some sweet treats. Each room offered a different story which of course requires a different sweet treat to go with it. Everything was perfectly curated too! I believe I had everything from chocolate chocolate to mint chocolate chip mochi to gold glittered cotton candy (BY FAR MY FAVORITE), they even did a throw back pop rocks candy treat. I was in sweet treat heaven.
The Museum of Ice Cream appeals to ALL of the senses. I walked out of this magical place on a SUGAR HIGH. Well worth a trip to San Francisco before they close their doors.
Hope you enjoy all the photos (look for the fully edited versions on my instagram) and that you get to make your way to see this museum if you haven’t already. BUT, until then, I’d love to hear which room you would be most excited to have a “photo shoot” in!
