The British Museum of Food’s founders Bompas & Parr present this exhibition dedicated to all things ice cream. See memorabilia from the world’s largest collection of ice cream paraphernalia, try scoops made with intriguing flavours of bygone era like candied fruit, an all-day-breakfast flavour and an eighteenth-century daffodil recipe, taste a glow-in-the-dark concoction in a futuristic luminescent cave and stand in a cloud of vanilla-flavoured fog and breathe it in.

Very disappointing. The exhibition is quite small and is not well executed, you spend as much time queuing through the various exhibits as actually looking at/doing something. The ice cream making class is 5 minutes of shaking a container and the glow in the dark ice cream did not glow in the dark at all. Not worth visiting.
Complete waste of time and money (£30 (!!) for 2 adults and a toddler). You get a freezer, a tiny room with glass cups, 6 minutes of "ice-cream" making class and a scoop of Ben&Gerry's. Are you guys, serious? With so much going on in London, there are so many better things to spend you time and cash on.
This exhibition in 1 word - SHAMBLES!
This is a complete waste of time/money and simply feels like something a bunch of students threw together in 5 minutes. In theory, the idea of an 'Icecream Exhibition' should work but the execution of this particular one is shambolic at best. From the poor organisation and sweaty humid rooms to budget design and basic interaction, I'd recommend to stay clear and give this Exhibition a miss in favour of your local Icecream Van.
