Heaven is a bowl of ice cream
Ice cream is not only dessert, it is art with visual beauty. The museum of Ice cream is the invention of Maryellis Bunn, a 25-year-old from Laguna beach. It started in New York, but now, Bunn expanded to the art district of LA, and it became the new hottest place in Downtown LA with its bright pink wall.
According to their website, admission is $29, and it sounds little bit expensive to pay that amount of money to see ice cream. According to Association of Art Museum Directors, the average cost of museum is only $8. This makes admission of the Museum of Ice Cream (MOIC) a bit steep. It is not cheap to compare with other art museums. However, according to their website, pretty much as soon as they released tickets, they sold like hotcakes, tickets are currently sold out till October 2017.
According to IMAGE, as you step into the building, you will meet “ten candy-coloured galleries, each spectacularly themed with ice cream in mind, and includes rooms filled with colourful waterfalls of bananas, giant ice lollies big erupting from walls, a room where you grow and nurture your own mint-flavoured chocolate, an assemblage of refreshing neon signs, an ice-cream walk of fame, a ‘California’ room where the famous Hollywood sign is swapped instead for, you guessed it, ice cream, and there’s even a room with a swimming pool filled with thousands and thousands of multicoloured sprinkles.” The swimming pool is filled with sprinkles and they will not ruin your cloth. The artist made sprinkles with colorful plastics so you can dive and play around in the sprinkles!
According to Korea Portal, MOIC was greeted by the presence of Beyonc?, Jay-Z, Katy Perry, Gwyneth Paltrow and Kylie Jenner. You don’t have to travel all the way to LA to experience this cool museum of ice cream as it‘s currently on the move to a new location. According to IMAGE, it is not yet known where it will be next, but you can sign up on their website to get follow-ups and be the first person who knows and bring your friends into heaven of ice cream.
