Museum of Ice Cream

You've seen this on Instagram, and all I can say is that it's even better in real life.  The Museum of Ice Cream is the museum of the moment thanks to social media.  Started by a young concept artist who dreamt of being able to swim in a pool of sprinkles, it's a great way to spend a day.  The museum consists of two levels: you enter on the ground floor which has multiple swings, an ice cream bar for samples, and the iconic sprinkle pool.  The entire museum is self guided, and you can take as long or as little time as you want to get through it all; the only section that is timed is the sprinkle pool as it's the most popular and can only hold so many people.  I actually found that part to be my least favorite of it all as it's smaller than expected and the time you get just flies by.  Once you've cleaned all the sprinkles off yourself, you're taken downstairs where you're on your own once again.  You go through a few rooms before getting to a 1950s style diner all in pink with old phones on the walls and a pink juke box.  In that room they give you a miniature ice cream cone with pink soft serve.  There's no other way to describe it, but if the color pink had a flavor it would be this ice cream.  You continue to the magnet room where you can write whatever you want on the walls with the alphabet magnets.  Next there's the cherry room where you're given cherry cotton candy.  Personally it's not my favorite treat - and cherry isn't my favorite flavor - but it made for some cute photos.  Then there's the room that reminded me most of Charlie and the Chocolate factory - the gummy bear room.  It was like a world of pure imagination in there.  After that, there's rides on giant animal crackers and the unicorn room which gives out the tastiest popsicles I've had in my life.  Finally there's the mint forest, where they hand out mint chocolate chip mochi.
Like most museums, you exit through the gift shop, where I fell victim to a cute coffee mug and some postcards.  I left wishing I could go through it again, but completely satisfied with my experience.  Let me also say, that everyone who worked there was so nice; my mom compared their service to that at Disneyland.  At $40 a ticket, it's not cheap, but with the amount of fun I had, I'd highly recommend it!
