What is the Museum of Selfies?
The Museum of Selfies first made waves in California, where it called Hollywood Boulevard home for years. Now, the quirky, exuberant museum has found a new home—the heart of Las Vegas.
This place isn’t your typical museum. You won’t find hordes of people starting quietly at a painting. Instead, you’ll find excited Millennials and influencers taking vibrant, carefree photos at the museum’s many epic exhibits.
Each “set” or room at the museum has a fun theme that will get you excited to whip out your camera and take tons of selfies. The unique and artistic backgrounds are some that you may not find anywhere else, so don’t miss your chance to pay this museum a visit.
The best part is that this interactive museum is family-friendly. It’s suitable for all ages, so even kids will have a blast taking photos in every set. It’s the perfect place to make fun-filled memories for the entire family, whether you’re a mom, kid, or even a grandparent!
What’s Inside the Museum?
But what makes the Museum of Selfies so fun and exciting to begin with? The answer to that is simple—its plethora of creative, modern, interactive sets and installations.
These rooms each offer something fresh and new, whether it’s an aesthetically pleasing backdrop for an Instagram photo or a mind-blowing optical illusion.
Here are 10 of the best sets you’ll find in the Museum of Selfies. Trust us, you’ll want to take at least a few photos in each one!

9. Falling Statue of David
The museum has one set that makes it look as though you’ve knocked over Michelangelo’s “Statue of David.” But it’s not just any Statue of David—it’s a replica that is made with light blue and pastel pink to give it a modern, Instagrammable twist.
It makes for a funny photo if you know how to act and put a shocked face on!
10. Pouting Mona Lisa
Lining up at the Louvre in Paris can take hours. So, why not take a selfie with Mona Lisa at this museum? Here’s the catch though—this Mona Lisa is a huge picture. She’s pouting her lips and taking a selfie, too!
Tips for Taking Photos at the Museum
The museum is very flexible when it comes to how guests are allowed to take photos. If you’re alone, you can take selfies with your phone and camera. The museum even has selfie sticks you can purchase in the gift shop to get all the best angles for each photo.
You can also get a friend to take your photos for you. This is the best way to get pictures at the optical illusion sets so you can capture the whole room.
You’re even allowed to hire a professional photographer to get the most high-quality shots possible. This option is available for those booking VIP tickets to the museum. After your visit, the museum will email your digital photos to you.
How Much Do Tickets Cost?
You can only buy tickets to the Museum of Selfies online. Admission for adults is worth $30 per person, while it’s only $25 for kids from ages 3-12. Any child below the age of three gets to come in for free.
The place also offers VIP packages, where you can work with an in-house professional photographer to take your photos for you. A VIP ticket is $70 for one adult and $120 for two.
And we get it—your fur babies and pets make for amazing props when taking selfies. Sadly, the museum does not allow pets inside unless they are registered service animals.
Note that all ticket sales are final. The museum doesn’t entertain requests for refunds or exchanges.
Fortunately, tickets are 100% transferable. If you make a last-minute change of plans and can’t visit the museum, you can simply give the QR code to a friend for them to redeem at the museum’s entrance.
Printing the QR code isn’t required either; just show a copy of it as well as the ticket on your phone, and the staff will let you through.
