Fodor's Review

Ice has never been so cool—this museum presents the works of local artists who turn giant blocks of ice into intricate sculptures. With about 100 pieces on display, including the Ice Showcase, a large glass-wall display that's kept a consistent 20°F, there's something to dazzle just about everyone. The large-screen film Freeze Frame illustrates ice-scuplting techniques, and each night at 8 pm, the museum, inside the historic Lacey Street Theater, screens a film about the aurora borealis.
