If you've been able to nab tickets for L.A.'s Museum of Ice Cream, then count yourself among a club of Instagram elites that's so far included Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian and Katy Perry. But if you haven't yet? Well, you're in pretty good company with the thousands of other Angelenos who've been closed out of the sold-out installation.
Luckily, there is hope for you. The Museum of Ice Cream, with its 10 colorful dessert-themed installations, has once again extended its run, this time through October 16. Tickets, which cost $29 for adults and $18 for children (3-12) and seniors (60+), will go on sale June 22 at 9am.
This marks the fourth time that the Arts District-by-way-of-New York spectacle has pushed back its closing plans from its original May 29 date.
While we thought the Pop Art-inspired installations, sprinkles pool and petite servings of ice cream—a rotating selection of scoops from the likes of McConnell's, Salt & Straw, Coolhaus and CREAM—were enjoyable if a bit overpriced, Angelenos have clearly developed a voracious appetite for the pop-up. According to the L.A. Times, which first announced the extension, tickets have sold out in less than 24 hours each time they're offered and fetch up to $250 on resale markets—which the Museum of Ice Cream's organizers are apparently aware of.
Check out our thoughts from our preview of the event earlier in the spring, and otherwise, good luck with grabbing tickets.
The Museum of Ice Cream (2018 E 7th Pl) runs through October 16 every day except Tuesday from 11am to 10pm. Learn more and purchase tickets here.
