Repeat. An ICE-CREAM museum is coming to Los Angeles.

It's what dreams are made of: a whole museum dedicated to the delicious, creamy, colourful desert we all know and love - ice cream... and it's coming to Los Angeles this month. Cue excitement.

For those of you wondering, this isn't destined to be a stuffy old history of ice cream museum. It's a quirky interactive art museum filled with displays of sprinkles, cones, toppings and ice-cream scoops.

The Museum of Ice Cream, a pop-up, first opened in New York City in 2016. Tickets sold out in five days leaving 200,000 disappointed ice-cream fans on a waiting list, hoping to enter its colourful doors.

Now it's been announced the sprinkle-tastic museum is coming to Los Angeles from 22 April to 29 May. For those heading that way, it's a must-add to any sweet toothed holidaymaker's itinerary. And for anyone eyeing a last-minute flight to see the museum, May departures are currently on sale from $826 return.

To give you an idea of what to expect inside, the New York pop-up had edible balloons, upside down ice cream cone light installations, an ice cream see-saw and a sprinkle swimming pool filled with one hundred million sprinkles... and yes, you could hop in and swim.

The L.A. museum promises to be bigger and better, four times the size and showcasing 10 re-imagined installations. While it's still hush-hush over what to expect, word is there will be a gigantic banana split, comprising 10,000 bananas, a melted popsicle jungle and amazing sprinkle pool.

Being a food museum, you won't be left disappointed in the tastebud department either as each ticket entitles you to two curated ice cream tastings and some surprise edible treats.
