The Museum of Selfies Grand Opening

Do It for the 'Gram: The Museum of Selfies Opens

Make sure your battery is fully charged.

At the intersection of highbrow art and lowbrow self-promotion is where you'll find L.A.'s newest pop-up exhibit: The Museum of Selfies. Opened April 1 (this is no joke) in the nearby suburb of Glendale, the museum's aim is twofold: "Visitors can explore the origin of the selfie through the lens of art, history, technology, and culture while taking some cool selfies of their very own with our interactive installations." The brainchild of escape-room designers Tommy Honton and Tair Mamedov, the museum is advertising a limited-engagement run concluding May 31. Take a peek inside this influencer's playground:

(In 2017, at nearby 14th Factory, a woman posing for a selfie knocked over a series of plinths, causing as much as $200,000 worth of damage.)
