Family travelers looking for tasty sightseeing needn’t look further than Miami, where Museum of Ice Cream, an interactive space dedicated to all things ice cream, plans to open a permanent location in Miami, opening in early 2024. The venue will be located at the new Miami Worldcenter development in Downtown Miami.
“Such a fun and unique concept like Museum of Ice Cream will without a doubt be a treat for Downtown Miami locals and visitors alike,” said Nitin Motwani, managing partner, Miami Worldcenter Associates. “The Museum will not only enhance the city’s status as a global arts and culture destination but will also be a wonderful complement to Miami Worldcenter’s various entertainment options. We are thrilled to become the home of Museum of Ice Cream’s first permanent Miami location.”
MOIC first appeared as a Miami Beach pop-up in 2017, originally slated to last only months, but stretching to six months as a result of high demand. The pop-up returned for one weekend only in November 2022 in the form of an ice cream paradise pool party at Hotel Greystone.
“We’re thrilled to have a permanent home for Museum of Ice Cream in Miami,” said Maryells Bunn, co-founder and CEO, Museum of Ice Cream. “Miami is a vibrant city known for its culture, love of fun, and artistic creativity. We’re excited to join the city’s growing Downtown, surrounded by popular destinations like the Wynwood Arts District, the Design District, and the Brickell Financial District. It is such a natural fit for us as we continue to grow and expand, and we can’t wait to share our playful and interactive exhibits with the local community and visitors from around the world.”
MOIC spans two floors with 10 interactive installations, like the Cream Liner, a luxury airline experience inspired by the 1960s and 70s; Mary-E’s Diner, for ice cream-themed drinks and food; The Hall of Freezers; and the iconic sprinkle pool. Unlimited sweet treats are available from five stations.
