The Sugar Factory will introduce The Museum of Candy this summer in New York City. Similar to its Museum of Ice Cream in Miami, there will be history lessons about the industry, a fashion show featuring candy canes, and a candy café that demonstrates the gummy bear-making process.

It will take space in a 30,000-square-foot Limelight Club space with a total of 15 candy-themed rooms to learn and take pictures. There will also be a shop to purchase baking and candy mold tools. Tickets will include multiple candy and dessert tastings, as the museum will feature a restaurant offering 24-scoop King Kong Sundaes, an outdoor café selling Pop-Tarts, doughnuts, milkshakes and coffee, and what it’s calling “a dessert marketplace” where more than 20 candy companies will give demonstrations and sell candy by the pound.

“We drew inspiration from all of our guests at Sugar Factory taking pictures at our life-size Candy Dot wall and with our over-the-top food and drinks,” Sugar Factory founder Charissa Davidovici said in a statement. Although there’s no official opening date, you can find more information about tickets on the Museum of Candy’s website. In related news, Salt Bae’s meme may have re-invigorated the food industry.
