As the weather finally warms up, there’s going to be one thing on our mind: a smooth, cool ice cream.

So take a look at the Museum of Ice Cream, which has popped up in Los Angeles, offering visitors an ‘experimental ice cream journey’, featuring 10 gigantic art installations and a pick of the best ice cream around.

The installations include an incredible Pop Art style work by Keith Magruder, who has filled a white room with gigantic ice lollies stuck in the walls and floors, dripping with vibrant colour.

The museum also features fun interactive zones, such as a swimming pool filled with millions of pink and yellow sprinkles.

The museum is sadly (but understandably) already fully booked but you can find out more about it here and explore its Instagram here.

Sugar, spice, and all things nice: the legendary cartoon Powerpuff Girls are heading to Soho as part of a three-day experiential pop-up.

The Powerpuff Girls Emporium, surely pitched at nostalgic millennials as well as young children, has a serious idea at its heart: only 10% of superhero films have a female lead.

Pop-up creator Cartoon Network wants to ‘celebrate girls everywhere’, hosting a variety of immersive zones within the pop-up to encourage girls to be adventurous.

These include a nail bar with a punchbag, a snake and rabbit petting area, and a science lab.

The Powerpuff Girls, a cartoon about three young sisters with superpowers, first aired in 1998.

Find out more about the unique experience, launching on 1st June, here.

Get some creative inspiration in an unusual place - the Museum of Failure.

Celebration is most commonly associated with all things good, but that’s about to change with this new museum in Sweden.

With its first exhibition due to launch on 7th June, the Museum of Failure showcases the supposed disasters from some of our favourite brands - but it also highlights that they, and we, shouldn't be afraid to make mistakes in the pursuit of creativity.

Some of the interesting innovations on display include Google Glass, a Harley Davidson perfume, and a frozen dinner from Colgate.

This could be the experience of which dreams are made – an elevated forest park allowing visitors to bounce among the treetops.

Studio Dror has designed ‘Parkorman’ to be in the skies of Istanbul, featuring an elevated playground with pathways, swinging hammocks, and a giant trampoline.

The park would have five zones, which channel different personalities, including the Loop, with swings and hammocks, and the Pool, which is a giant ball pit.
