DETROIT – Get ready for your photo op: A “selfie museum” is coming to Downtown Detroit.

Opening to the public on Oct. 23, the Selfie Museum of Detroit will feature a collection of 20 interactive art installations and scenes located at the Chrysler House. Co-founded by Detroit resident Kelli Cooke and her daughter Jordyn Watson, 14, the art installations are focused on “feeling free, having fun and cultivating good vibes,” a press release reads Monday.

Photos of the museum highlight an array of vibrant and eclectic installations, including one with a large ball pit and wall full of smiley faces, and another with oversized pastel dessert props on the ground and walls. Selfie museums have recently become popular attractions across Metro Detroit and the nation, often featuring several rooms with unique decorations designed for people to visit and take photos.

The Selfie Museum of Detroit opens at 11 a.m. on Oct. 23, and reservations are required to attend. Individuals interested in visiting the museum will be able to make reservations on the museum’s website later this week, officials said.
