Museum of Ice Cream | Miami Worldcenter | Miami

An ice cream-themed interactive museum that twice opened pop-ups in Miami Beach is now opening a permanent outpost across the bridge on the mainland. 

Museum of Ice Cream will open early next year in a two-story, 14,000-square-foot space along the pedestrian promenade at Miami Worldcenter in downtown Miami, according to a news release from the representatives of the mixed-use project. The Museum will be at 851 Northeast First Avenue. 

Founded and led by Maryellis Bunn and Manish Vora, the Museum of Ice Cream first opened a pop-up at the Faena District in Miami Beach in 2017. It returned in 2022 as a weekend pop-up pool party at Hotel Greystone. 

The Museum of Ice Cream also has outposts in Austin, Chicago, New York and Singapore. 

Art Falcone and Nitin Motwani, in partnership with CIM Group, are the master developers of the $6 billion Miami Worldcenter. The 27-acre mixed-use complex’s retail tenant roster includes Rihanna’s lingerie brand Savage X Fenty, lululemon and Chef Michael Beltran’s Brasserie Laurel restaurant.
