Could there be any better escape from the summer heat than a visit to an ice cream-themed museum? Following its 2016 launch in New York City, the Museum of Ice Cream opened in Los Angeles from April 22 until the end of May, enabling visitors to take photos with giant popsicle sculptures, enjoy sample scoops from artisanal California creameries such as McConnell's and Coolhaus, and immerse themselves in a plastic sprinkle pool.

The brainchild of 25-year-old Maryellis Bunn, the Museum of Ice Cream opened as a 45-day pop-up last summer in Manhattan; all 30,000 tickets were sold out in three days, leaving 200,000 people on the sweet-tooth waiting list. The LA pop-up followed a similar course, with tickets selling out after just a couple of days, as celebrities including Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian brought their children to the highly Instagrammable show.

Future pop-up museums are planned for Miami and San Francisco before the end of the year, according to Bunn – but you'd better get in line. Two ice creams are included with each admission, so you can give yourself and the kids a sweet treat if you're lucky enough to get one of those golden tickets.
