Parlour House

Parlour House

Now Open on the Second Floor of the Kirby Science Discovery Center

The Washington Pavilion’s former concessions area located on the 2nd floor of the Kirby Science Discovery Center has undergone a fantastic transformation, now serving as a family-friendly ice cream parlor and snack bar. Parlour House features gourmet ice cream, fresh popcorn, candy and cold beverages!

In November 2023, the Washington Pavilion acquired business operations of Parlour Ice Cream House, which was previously located across the street at 340 S. Main Ave. Now, you can enjoy the best ice cream in Sioux Falls during your visits to our museums!

A scoop is just $3.95!
