The Museum of Ice Cream

Already in New York City, Austin and Singapore, the Museum of Ice Cream will open its delicious, sprinkle-covered Windy City doors in the summer of 2022.

Designers of the Museum of Ice Cream have developed a very unique experience that is much more than just the history of ice cream.

"Museum of Ice Cream transforms concepts and dreams into spaces that provoke imagination and creativity. MOIC is designed to be a culturally inclusive environment and community, inspiring human connection and through the universal power of ice cream."

The first person I thought of when I saw this news was my friend who "lives, breathes and eats ice cream", Brent Murray, owner of Rockton, Illinois' Dairyhaus Ice Cream.

He had heard of the museum's other locations, but as to what goes on inside, neither one of us has a clue what to expect.

We did agree that these pictures sure do look fun and that a visit will surely need to happen shortly after they open.
