The Museum of Ice Cream opened its first international branch in Singapore and it’s a pink paradise for everyone with a sweet tooth!
The new store launched its grand opening weekend by hosting different nostalgic games and even inviting an ice cream truck that gave out Mercones (part-merlion, part-ice cream) and temporary tattoos, while also serving the Singapore Sling Boba at the bar.
The flagship museum in New York is extremely popular, especially with social media influencers and celebrities, and there are already plans of expanding to other cities soon with the Austin, Texas location opening on August 21.
“We have been looking forward to opening our first-ever international location for years, and we cannot be more thrilled to launch officially in Singapore today,” said the museum’s co-founder and creative director Maryellis Bunn.
Ice cream lovers are in for a treat as the building comes fully furnished with a café bar, themed diners, a retail store, a bouncy castle, the biggest Sprinkle Pool that the museum has ever created, and so much more. Guests can also indulge themselves in unlimited scoops of their favorite ice cream flavors with a twist like Lemon Bliss Balls, Apple Pie Soft Serve, Taro Milk Tea, Lychee Bandung and more.
Interested visitors were required to book their day in advance to prevent crowding, especially with the strict coronavirus protocols that have been implemented. Guests must participate in mandatory check-ins and show their vaccination certificates along with a negative COVID-19 test. Those who have not yet received their vaccines must present a valid negative COVID-19 PET result that was taken within 24 hours from the admission time. Fully vaccinated guests can enjoy their visit in groups of five, including unvaccinated children that are twelve years old or younger if the children are all from the same household.
The Museum of Ice Cream Singapore is open every day from 10am to 11pm from Thursdays to Sundays. Tickets cost S$38, but children that are two years old and below can enjoy free admission. For more information or reservations, visit the Museum of Ice Cream website.
