New York City has its fair share of weird museums, but few have the ability to appeal to the hearts and stomachs of New Yorkers quite like this one: a museum entirely dedicated to ice cream. Yes, #blessed New Yorkers, on July 29th, the Museum of Ice Cream will open its Meatpacking District doors to the masses of overheated people in desperate need of dairy.
Curated by a group of designers and artists, the MoIC pop-up brings an interactive ice cream experience to 100 Gansevoort St, with an immersive chocolate room, a gargantuan collaborative ice cream sundae, and a swimmable rainbow sprinkle pool complete with a diving board. (They're not real sprinkles, but they apparently look and feel like them -- and no bathing suit is necessary). It's essentially Willy Wonka's frozen ice cream factory, where you can swing on an ice cream sandwich and seesaw on an ice cream scooper.
