It will be a sweet summer in San Francisco.
The wildly popular Museum of Ice Cream is extending its run yet again. You can immerse yourself in icy-creamy goodness and flop into that pool of sprinkles through Sept. 3. Tickets for the latest extension went on sale last week.
And there are new whimsical art installations at the show — a Mint Jungle and Carnival — providing new selfie options.
The museum is open six days a week (closed Tuesdays), and advance tickets are required.

After selling out runs in New York and Los Angeles, the exhibit came to San Francisco last September. The first round of tickets sold out in 18 minutes.
What’s the appeal (besides the ice cream samples) of the theme park-like exhibit?
“It’s like Willy Wonka married Mary Kay in Victoria’s Secret, moved to a house on a Candyland game board and adopted the Pink Panther, My Little Pony and Hello Kitty as pets,” our reviewer Angela Hill wrote when the museum opened.
By the way, you don’t have to worry about those sprinkles ending up on a sundae at the finale of your visit. They’re plastic.
