It's best to check your adulting self at the door when you enter the San Francisco Museum of Ice Cream, the latest in a series of colorful art installations that are taking the country's major cities by storm. Imagine Andy Warhol and Dr. Seuss collaborated to create an exhibit filled with endless fun, imaginative wonder, and all the desserts you loved as a kid. Sounds amazing, right?! Scroll through to see our amazing adventure — where we experienced *all* the bright colors and textures, sampled *all* the sweets, and snapped *all* the selfies — in this ice cream wonderland.
The museum is located in an old bank building that features its original vault, now updated and rocking a fresh coat of millennial pink paint.
The whipped cream can ring toss was def a B+C favorite, and it was not easy!
There's plenty of ice cream trivia, so you're bound to get smarter!
Our fave room was definitely the old school diner, complete with vinyl spoof wall art (think Cone Thugs & Harmony and Michael Jackson "Chiller"), a vintage jukebox rockin' the classics, and of course, ice cream!
We enjoyed spinning on our stools while sampling the creative flavors made especially for the exhibit.
SF's fave ice creamery, Bi-Rite, created a custom combo featuring gingersnap ice cream with cookies topped with strawberry basil sauce, savory-sweet ginger crumbles, and sprinkles. SOMUCHYUM.
This is pretty much our motto here at Brit + Co.
There was cotton candy dusted with edible, sparkling glitter.
And a giant gummy bear paradise.
We tried to take some candy souvenirs home with us, but they were v. stuck.
We lived our best prism life...
...and then sampled unicorn milk ice cream!
Fun fact: Unicorn milk ice cream is delicious.
"It's like not even coming to work," Allyson, an Ice Cream Museum employee, told us. "It's soooo fun."
We selfied our little hearts out in the sprinkle pool.
We let ourselves be silly, and we had SO much fun.
Swings aren't just for kids!
"Anything you dream is possible," says Maryellis Bunn, the exhibit's founder, "but it takes a lot of work and dedication."
This diamond-encrusted ice cream bar looked good enough to eat!
We loved seeing all the happy people working at the exhibit...
... and we will DEFINITELY be going back again!
