It seems the Museum of Ice Cream, a fabulous ice cream-centric wonderland, can’t get enough of the Magic City. It first came to Miami Beach in 2017 as a temporary pop-up housing pink palms, banana swings and the famous sprinkle pool. Then it hit the city again in 2022 for one weekend as an adults-only ice cream paradise pool party at the Hotel Greystone.
Now, the Museum of Ice Cream is returning to Miami — permanently. It’s been announced that it will open early 2024 at the new Miami Worldcenter development, a 27-acre, $6 billion mixed-use destination in downtown Miami. It doesn’t get much sweeter than this!
Bringing the same sense of child-like joy and wonderment experienced at its other locations, the new space will be a whopping 14,000-square-feet, spanning two floors and designed by the MOIC in-house design team, along with the use of AI technology.
A variety of 10 unique, interactive installations will take over the new location, including the famed sprinkle pool; the Cream Liner, a luxury airliner experience inspired by the 60s and 70s; Mary-E’s Diner, a retro-futurism inspired hub for ice cream-themed drinks and food; The Hall of Freezers, an exploratory space filled with dozens of mysterious refrigerator doors that are sure to peak curiosity; and of course, plenty of ice cream all with the added bonus of snapping millions of selfies.
“We’re thrilled to have a permanent home for Museum of Ice Cream in Miami,” said Museum of Ice Cream Co-Founder and CEO, Maryellis Bunn. “Miami is a vibrant city known for its culture, love of fun, and artistic creativity… 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.”
Slated to open next year, MOIC will debut at Miami Worldcenter at 851 NE 1st Avenue (Unit #134) along the development’s pedestrian promenade between 1st and 2nd Avenues. More information and a wait list for alerts on the Miami location can be found on their website.
