The Museum of Ice Cream is opening its next pop-up in San Francisco this Sunday, September 17, after recent successful runs in both Los Angeles (where it is still open until October 2017, but currently sold out) and New York City (closed for the season). General admission tickets went on sale 9 a.m. PST September 15.
The museum transforms childhood dreams in Wonka-like rooms into reality; where ice cream flavors and toppings come to life in "super cool" immersive installations, and delectable, edible ice cream treats are almost always on hand.
The San Francisco pop-up is housed in a historical landmark building at One Grant Avenue. According to a press release, the space, which was originally a bank built over 100 years ago and most recently the location of the San Francisco Emporio Armani store, inspired Museum of Ice Cream founder and creative director Maryellis Bunn. When paired with the playful, modern design of the Museum of Ice Cream, the building’s classic architecture unlocks even more imagination from visitors. The combination may just make it the most Instagrammable site in town.
