You’ve been living under a social media rock if you’ve never heard of Museum of Ice Cream. The first location is in Los Angeles and the newest location in San Francisco just opened this past weekend. I was lucky enough to attend before opening day to see it all first! When the MOIC opened up in LA a few months ago, my Instagram feed was FLOODED with beautiful pink photos, sprinkle pool shots, and crazy candy! Obviously, I loved and adored every single of them. I even contemplated going down to LA to go there. I was obviously ecstatic to find out that it was making it’s way to SF! Keep reading on to see my full experience at MOIC SF, (most) of the rooms, and my honest review if it’s worth the whopping $38 per ticket.
Be prepared for A LOT of pink photos…
Down the ice cream vault … What is so cool about the MOIC is that the building is an old bank, so walking through the museum, you’re literally walking from transformed room to room. There are so many tiny details around each room, make sure you take your time to look at them all! As I’ve heard about the MOIC LA, it’s one huge warehouse type building. I could be wrong. Anyways, we begin the journey by going down some stairs into the ice cream vault which is “the magical door” to the ice cream magic! Super cute concept and definitely gets you hyped up!
Carnival Games! This room was so much fun because it’s carnival themed! Totally LOVING the striped pink walls and carnival tickets all over the floor. You can play ring toss on the whipped cream bottles and win prizes if you make it. Already getting interactive with the museum, so that was fun. Sadly, I didn’t win any prizes, aha. It’s ok! They also have screens in a few select rooms you can do some fun boomerang videos in and airdrop or e-mail them to yourself!
Scooping Bi-Rite … I think this was one of my favorite rooms in the whole museum! One, they served Bi-rite, one of my favorite ice cream stops in SF ever. And two, it is the cutest pink 50’s inspired diner with the bar stools, juke box, and everything! Ok, and don’t get me started on this ice cream flavor!! It’s called Strawberry Ginger Snap, an exclusive flavor made from bi-rite and holy yes, it is so bomb! I’m not sure if they’ll be the main sponsor throughout the duration of MOIC SF, but get it while you can! It’s like a strawberry ice cream with some sort of or cinnamon or graham cracker twist to it. SO GOOD! … Can I back just for this flavor???
Spell it out … This next room is a huge freezer filled with .. you guessed it .. more ice cream! The pink magnetic letters cover all four walls and you can pretty much spell or create anything you want. This room provides you with some mochi ice cream, yes, MOCHI! Choose your flavor, chocolate, strawberry, or cookies and cream.
Sugar high!! Ok, I seriously just finished my mochi ice cream and as soon as I walk into the next room, there is GLITTER COTTON being spun! And yes, they spray magical glitter all over it! This room is seriously so dreamy with the floating cherries and cotton candy clouds! Can I mention that it’s also blinding in here because of the metallic (but beautiful) pink wallpaper.
