One of the many sweet treats that museum guests will enjoy.

It’s almost here! Ahead of the Museum of Ice Cream’s grand opening tomorrow in DTLA’s Arts District, we’re sharing a sweet sneak peek inside the Instagrammable wonder.

Set to run from Saturday, April 22 to Monday, May 29 (11am to 10pm daily; closed Tuesdays), the month-long exhibit promises photo ops (and treats) around every corner, from supersized gummy bears and popiscles to mochi and ice cream tastings. The museum was founded by Cali-bred creative Maryellis Bunn, who also dreamed up an entire room that pays homage to her home state and its Hollywood roots.

Timed 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. Sadly, tickets for this weekend are sold out, but there are still plenty available in May.

While you await your visiting day, scroll through the gallery above for a taste of what’s in store and buy your tickets online at the Museum of Ice Cream’s website.
