Ice sculptors transform frozen water into beautiful art, just like children who build snowmen just to watch them burn. Watch the whittlers at work with this Groupon.

The Natural Ice Harvest Museum illuminates the once-booming ice-harvesting industry in the Poconos prior to refrigeration, which involved extracting ice blocks from lakes. The event will be open from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. Monday–Saturday and until 4 p.m. on Sunday.
Sculpted Ice Works
Every winter, the professional ice carvers at Sculpted Ice Works whittle and chip away at large blocks of ice to create Crystal Cabin Fever, an indoor, interactive display of expertly formed frozen water. In the event’s infancy, the exhibit was limited to a life-size ice cabin, but it has since blossomed to include a unique annual theme, live carving demonstrations, and an ice slide—totaling more than 100 tons of ice in all. In the fall, Sculpted Ice Works hosts Night at the Ice Museum, with ice sculptures and fall fun, and factory tours and a museum on ice harvesting are open year-round.
