A sensory experience awaits at the Museum of Ice Cream.

The sold-out Meatpacking District pop-up, open until Sept. 4, features a trippy chocolate room, a sprinkle-filled pool and helium balloons made of sugar. Naturally, the museum offers up ice cream from the likes of Oddfellows and Chinatown Ice Cream Factory.

Co-founder Maryellis Bunn said the museum was a childhood dream that turned into a reality. It definitely feels a little like a dream, indeed.

Bunn told amNY.com there are no plans to take the museum on the road -- yet.

"Everyone's super excited about it," she said. "After this, we can evaluate what the next steps are.

The museum says this is the world's "first and only" sprinkle pool. While we can't confirm that fact, we'll go with it. Guests can get in, lay down, "swim" or play with beach balls. But you have to take off your shoes first. (Credit: Georgia Kral)

Those lemon slices don't taste like lemon

Another room in the Museum of Ice Cream
Another room in the Museum of Ice Cream features an interactive installation devoted to the science of taste. Guests first take a miracle berry tablet and suck on it until it dissolves. The miracle berry, an actual fruit called dulcificum, makes sour foods taste sweet. After the tablet, you eat the ice cream, pictured. We tried it and the lemon was not sour. (Credit: Georgia Kral)
