Los Angeles is Opening A Museum Of Selfies Charging Visitors $25 Per Ticket


In the modern age of selfie sticks, photo-sharing obsessions and social media addictions, one museum is looking to embrace them all. The Museum of Selfies – a new museum dedicated to the “science, art and culture of self representation” – is opening its camera-ready doors in California next month.

As if we weren’t seeing too much selfies on social media already, news tells us that, yes, a museum exclusively dedicated for selfies will be opening pretty soon. Is this the biggest proof of human vanity, so far? Well, maybe!

Co-founders Honton and Tair Mamedov told Mashable: “The relationship between people and art has changed.” They continued: “Now people don’t want to just be a silent consumer, they want to be a part of the art. There are many more selfies with the Mona Lisa than actual Mona Lisa’s.”

There will also be some serious exhibits in the museum, like an area dedicated to narcissism and another zone dedicated to people who have died trying to take a selfie.The Museum of Selfies follows a series of other attractions that mainly feature areas where people can take nice pictures of themselves. The “high-up selfie” exhibit will feature a fake skyscraper that visitors can climb to snap a virtual vertigo-inducing rooftop selfie, while a series of original works from various artists around the world will depict the “provocative and creative vision of the selfie phenomenon”.

Selfie addicts will be glad to know selfie sticks “aren’t just allowed inside, they are encouraged”.
