Forget Art: Avocado Museum to Open This Summer

Between avocado toast (thanks, millennials) and avocado ice cream (thanks, Tom Brady), you’d think that we’ve reached peak avocado—but you’d be wrong. This June, an entire 6,700-square-foot avocado museum will open in San Diego.

Sponsored by the California Avocado Commission, The Cado is a pop-up comprising 16 mobile shipping containers that will be based in the Liberty Station waterfront district from June to August 2018.

Tickets are $27, and will get you a retro cassette tape player guided tour, admission to the “ripe room” (with textured walls meant to feel like a perfectly ripe avocado), tastings of “fresh California-inspired avocado-centric bites,” and plenty of photo opportunities.
