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!

According to reports, the said museum will showcase selfie-inspired art along with the history of selfies. Of course, there will also be designated areas for museum-goers who want to take their own selfies during their visit.

The Museum of Selfies is scheduled to open in Los Angeles this January 2018.

According to co-founders Tonny Honton and Tair Mamedov, they thought it would be a great idea to open such a museum since people love going to museums not only to look at art but to take photos of themselves as well.

In an interview, they said:

“The relationship between people and art has changed.

“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 Lisas.”

There will be a lot in store for selfie lovers.

Honton added:

“We definitely want people to laugh or be surprised by the entire exhibit. So we have the visual humor where people walk up, and they engage with the space. And we’re hoping they laugh, or they’re surprised, or are amused, and that they can’t help but want to take a picture with it.”

Among those to be highlighted in the museum are iconic selfies, such as those from Selfie Queen Kim Kardashian.

Historic selfies will also be featured such as this one which shows the first known use of “selfie stick” taken way back in 1934.

Other attractions will include a Game of Thrones iron throne made of selfie sticks, reported The Sun. As for the ticket price? Visitors will have to spend $25 per head.

Meanwhile, those who want to follow Museum of Selfies can check them out over at Instagram.
