The museum in Miami Beach says visitors can enjoy the pool. But the museum was fined for creating an environmental hazard. Evidently the sprinkles can clog storm drains and harm marine life.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. The Museum of Ice Cream in Miami Beach has a pool of fake sprinkles you can swim in. They advertise that a hundred million sprinkles mean a hundred million dreams and anything is possible. That includes the feel good Museum of Ice Cream being fined for creating an environmental hazard. Evidently, the sprinkles can clog storm drains and harm marine life. Museum officials say they're taking precautions, including making sure visitors are sprinkle free when they leave. It's MORNING EDITION.
