An edible ice cream museum just opened in NYC and it's amazing

Museum of ice creamAly Weisman/INSIDEROf course there are edible exhibits at the Museum of ice cream.

There’s a reason the Museum of Ice Cream is sold out throughout its one-month long pop-up in New York City’s Meatpacking District.

It is, quite literally, the coolest.

Edible exhibits, taste tests that turn sour to sweet, a chocolate fountain, and a pool full of rainbow sprinkles are just a few of the highlights.

We got the scoop on everything the museum has to offer.

Welcome to the Museum of Ice Cream!

... where a bowl of ice cream is your ticket for entry.

Guests are greeted with homemade, edible balloons made of a sugary mix.

They're blown into crazy shapes.

And filled with helium.

We had to try one.

Museum-goers are encouraged to suck the helium out of the balloons, making for a funny, squeaky voice.

Every exhibit is interactive, like this sundae, where guests add scoops to try and make the 'world's largest sundae.'

There's a wall of cones.

And an ice cream cone light fixture.

We made ourselves comfortable in the 'chocolate cave,' where the 'Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory' theme song played in the background.

There's a Tinder-sponsored room with an ice cream sundae swing, sprinkles selfie wall, and an ice cream scoop seesaw.

Museum guides hand out 'miracle berries,' which change your flavour receptors for 30 minutes for a taste test.

The berries make sour flavours like lemons taste sweet like candy.

It's true, we tried it.

But the pièce de résistance is a pool filled with 11,000 pounds of rainbow sprinkles.

The 'sprinkles' are not edible.

The pool is only three feet deep...

But there's plenty of space to splash around.

Maryellis Bunn is the founder of the museum. 'Ice cream is a passion and this is the project to share, lick and like with the world,' she says.

There's lots of ice cream-themed merchandise for sale on your way out.

It's hard to leave empty-handed.

These are the artists who were commissioned to make pieces for the museum.
