One of the highlights of our Miami trip was visiting the Museum Of Ice Cream. The MOI started here in New York City and when it opened, I recall trying to get tickets which sold out quickly during its limited engagement. From New York they headed to Los Angeles, then Miami, and San Francisco, so as soon as I booked our Miami flights I was fortunate enough to get a morning slot at the exhibit.
In the days leading up to the trip, the girls talked about the museum constantly. They told their teachers and friends all about their plans to jump into the sprinkle pool! Quite honestly, the sprinkle pool was the only thing I had known about the museum, since the majority of those pics are on everyone’s Instagram feeds.
Upon arrival, you are greeted by an ice cream tarot card reader, who was pretty on point with her readings! Siella picked a palm tree card, indicating that she is strong minded, rarely letting shade come her way. Gemma pulled an ice cream scooper which read that she is aware of her surroundings, even times when she doesn’t appear to be paying attention. She nailed it for both.
Next, it was onto the sprinkle pool! The girls jumped, rolled, and even splashed around in little plastic sprinkles. The facility limits the number of people allowed in the pool, which was nice to mitigate the crowds. This was ideal for me to snap pics, with no one in the background!
Next, the milk shake room, where I was surprised t0 learn we would be served ice cream. I thought we’d have to buy some on the way out! We enjoyed a chocolate milkshake with pink whipped cream on top, before heading to the next exhibit. I figured there would be one maybe two two exhibits left, but boy was I mistaken. We still had an entire multi level building to conquer!
We reached for balloons!
Climbed plenty of pink staircases.
Swung around on cherries and bananas!
Ate some more treats…a chocolate covered banana with sprinkles!
Built our own masterpiece for a bite of one of three flavors of mochi.
Here is the strawberry mochi.
We drank some liquid ice cream from a mini carton container. And finally, a fifth ice cream serving later it was time for key lime pie flavored ice cream in a cone.
We played with sand playdoh, hula hooped, and so much more!
I am so excited to see the Miami Museum of Ice Cream extended their dates again. Considering I was only expecting to dive into the sprinkle pool, buy an ice cream cone and leave, this was such a treat (pun intended!). Clearly, it was so much more than that, and the girls and I will totally remember this experience. Now Museum of Ice Cream, please come back to New York City!
