This New York Attraction Will Be an Instagram Hotspot This Summer
The Museum of Ice Cream returned to New York City Wednesday with new ways to spice up your Instagram game this summer.
The term "museum" might be a little bit of a stretch here...The Museum of Ice Cream's locations in New York, LA, Miami and San Francisco have really just been a series of colorful, ice cream-themed photo ops that will put you in a summer state of mind.
But New York's pop-up version of the museum will focus on actual ice cream. This summer, the people behind the Museum of Ice Cream's iconic features -- like the pool full of sprinkles -- are introducing The Pint Shop, a vibrant grocery store hawking giant pints (big enough for you to stand in!) of custom-flavored ice cream.
The Pint Shop's seven original flavors include Nana Banana, Cherrylicious and Churro Churro. The shop is open to the public six days a week from 12:00pm to 9:00pm, but you can make a tasting reservation and learn about the ice cream making process for $28.
Currently all tasting reservations are sold out, but the next next bookings will be available starting on June 18. In addition, on June 10 the museum will release the dates of its special programs, which include creating vision boards, pitching your own flavor, learning how to make a GIF, and a DIY ice cream accessory session.
The ice cream pop-up will be stationed in New York from June 6 through August 2018.
The Pint Shop also partnered with Target, and on July 8, The Museum of Ice Cream will sell its pints in Target stores.
