The museum to end all Instagrammable museums arrives in Los Angeles this weekend, and we suggest leaving that darn dairy intolerance at home. New York’s famed Museum of Ice Cream is treating Angelenos to a sprinkle pool, oversized popsicle pop art, and more in the Downtown Arts District starting this Saturday, April 22nd.

The month-long interactive exhibit will also house a room dedicated to California, a banana split room with 10,000 bananas, a mint “grow house,” and much more. There’ll be edible creations too: the museum will have a rotating “scoop of the week” featuring gourmet creameries like Salt & Straw, McConnell’s, Coolhaus x Cuisinart, and CREAM, plus mochi tastings from My/Mo.

Of course, there’ll be a gift shop in the house, which will offer ice cream-inspired products like enamel pins, scoopers, custom sprinkles, stationery, and even a ping pong table.

Admission is $29 for guests 13 and up and $18 for children (3 to 12) and seniors (60 and up); tickets must be purchased online in advance as there are none available at the door.
