Tea Time skipped the Color Factory, but couldn't resist the Museum of Ice Cream, located in the former Armani building at Grant and Market. We were divided into "teams" at the entrance and had to choose a team name. We were team Unicorn Ice Cream Horn. We were told we could spend as much time as we wanted at each exhibit, but also reminded that the next team couldn't enter until we all had exited each room.
There are snippets of ice cream history on the walls.
The famous Ice Cream Vault.
We wonder what toy soldiers have to do with ice cream. But they're pink.
Our first treat was a strawberry It's-It. Everything is pink in here.
Even the vintage jukebox!
You can "write" on the walls with magnetic letters.
Then eat ice cream mocha. Fortunately not all pink.
Then there's freshly-made cotton candy.
Clouds and cherries.
Followed by the Gummy Garden.
Next, A Unicorn Milk Ice Cream Cone.
We didn't crawl into the mirror room, but some team members did.
Angela braved the sprinkle pool. J.K. is still trying to get the sand out of the suitcase Angela took camping on the beach in Hawaii, so she sat this one out.
There are swings to play on.
Angela won an extra cone at the ring toss game.

Then there was the gift shop. Expensive, but so cute!
