Deets: After a successful pop-up run earlier this year, Museum of Selfies is opening its doors permanently on Hollywood Boulevard to share the history and cultural phenomenon of the selfie. With interactive exhibits that will allow for picture perfect photos to be captured such as the “bathroom selfie,” “Hollywood selfie,” and more, Museum of Selfies is an Instagrammer’s paradise.

Museum-goers will find themselves surrounded by photo opportunities, snapping several selfies throughout the exhibits such as the infamous “bathroom selfie,” in a two-sided illusion room lacking an actual mirror; the “Hollywood selfie,” where individuals can experience what it’s like to be a star at the Selfie Oscar ceremony, and so much more. Additionally, the museum will feature works from several different artists including first-in-the-world 3D wings by renowned Angel Wings artist Colette Miller and an amazing optical illusion room from visual artist Darel Carey, who’s best known for his abstract line drawings and optical tape installations. After experiencing all the museum has to offer, guests will leave with great photos and an even better understanding of the selfie and it’s meaning.
