About the event
The British Museum of Food returns with its first major exhibition, just right for the summer.
Welcome to SCOOP: A Wonderful Ice Cream World, a celebratory show that will explore the past, present and future of ice cream.
No ordinary museum exhibit, SCOOP brings your favourite dessert to life in a total sensory immersion: expect ice cream weather, eat glow-in-the-dark ice cream, understand the neuroscience of the frozen treat and explore the dark side of desserts.
The exhibition is centred on the world’s largest collection of ice cream paraphernalia, featuring vintage equipment, service-ware, advertising, art and music drawn from 14,000 items collected over 40 years by Robin and Caroline Weir, authors of the award-winning book "Ice Creams Sorbets and Gelati The Definitive Guide" from Grub Street Publishers.
