Where is the museum of ice cream?

The Museum of Ice Cream is a company that develops and operates interactive retail experiences, or “selfie museums”, in various locations across the United States and overseas. These exhibits are ice cream and candy-themed, with vibrant colors, and they serve as backdrops for selfies. Museum of Ice Cream locations are often found in storefronts, providing a unique retail experience that is promoted through social media posts made by visitors​1​.

The first Museum of Ice Cream location was a pop-up that opened in the Meatpacking District of New York City in 2016. The company was founded by Maryellis Bunn and Manish Vora, who initially self-funded the venture. Bunn drew inspiration for the company from her perspective on American retail and traditional museums, which she viewed as outdated industries. However, it’s important to note that the Museum of Ice Cream locations are not “museums” in the traditional sense. They are more aptly described as interactive multi-sensory exhibits or “experiums” as the founder now prefers to call them​1​.

The Museum of Ice Cream’s success led to the establishment of other similar experience-focused companies, such as the Museum of Pizza, Cado, and Rosé Mansion. In 2018, Target began selling pints of Museum of Ice Cream’s ice cream in flavors like “Piñata” and “Sprinkle Pool”. However, by 2020, Target discontinued selling Museum of Ice Cream products. The company also produced a makeup line for Sephora​1​.

Despite its popularity, the company and its founders have faced criticism for creating and fostering a hostile work environment. Allegations include denying workers bathroom breaks during 8-hour shifts​1​.
