History of Ice Cream

Family Program
History of Ice Cream
Thu, July 4th, 2013 | 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

All ages. Free with Museum admission.
I scream, you scream! Come explore the history of this sweet treat in the United States and help us crank up batches of 17th century "icey creams." Families will smell unfamiliar flavors, use nineteenth-century ice tongs, nip and grind a sugarloaf, and handle a "penny lick" cup in addition to hand-cranking and tasting some old-fashioned ice cream.
