Parlour features gourmet ice cream, fresh popcorn, candy and cold beverages and is located in the former concessions area on 2nd floor of the Kirby Science Discovery Center. Now, you can enjoy the best ice cream in Sioux Falls during your visits to our museums. Or just stop in for a tasty treat! (Museums admission is not required.)

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.
