Stand back Color Factory, there’s a new buzz-worthy experience in town. The news of a downtown San Francisco location is melting the hearts of ice cream lovers who have been anxiously waiting for the doors to open and reveal an interactive sprinkle pool, an ice cream sandwich swing and maybe some new SF-only features.
The Museum officially opens on Sunday, September 17th from 11am-10pm. Pre-purchasing a ticket is required and will go on sale this week, you can purchase them here for a cool $38 a pop (kids under 3 are free!) starting this Friday September 14th at 9am – each ticket also includes tastings and edible treats. If you have money to burn, the private tours will likely run you between $1500-$2000 for groups up to 20.

#FUNFACTFRIDAY The cone didn't appear until 1904, when a Syrian waffle maker at the St. Louis World's Fair began rolling his pastries into horns to help an ice cream vendor who had run out of dishes. (The idea had been patented a year earlier, by an Italian in New York City, but the fair popularized it. (Artist: @paulfuentes_design) #museumoficream
