Here’s a sweet scoop: New York City’s Museum of Ice Cream is making its way to Singapore.
The highly Instagrammable exhibition, best know for its sweet-hued ice cream-themed installations, is slated to open in the second half of the year in the Dempsey area. This is also the first time the colourful attraction makes its way outside of the United States.
According to The Straits Times, the news was announced today (April 7) at the Tourism Industry Conference, an annual industry conference organised by the Singapore Tourism Board (STB).
The Museum of Ice Cream will bring to Singapore its signature, immersive, and most importantly, photogenic installations dedicated to the frozen treat. Look forward to dipping your toes in a sprinkle pool – all while savouring actual cool treats.
While ticket sales are still not available, those interested can register for early ticket access over at the Museum of Ice Cream’s website. "Experience a world where Americana meets Singapore nostalgia and where anything is possible," it says.
STB also announced at the conference a slew of other new attractions to help boost the attractiveness of the tourism industry. Clarke Quay will get a new thrill ride – the Slingshot – which is said to be Asia’s tallest. Sentosa will also see Singapore’s first open-air panoramic attraction SkyHelix Sentosa, which will offer views of Sentosa and the Southern Waterfront.
