Selfie museums provide intricate backdrops, bright colors, and tons of variety for content creators. However, these photo experiences aren’t just for those looking to build a following. These five metro Detroit selfie museums provide fun settings for bridal showers, birthdays, or those just looking to have some fun in front of the camera.
The Selfie Museum of Detroit
Created by mother-daughter duo Kelli and Jordyn, this museum is as creative as it gets. The pair wanted to create a selfie museum experience that was family-friendly and allowed its visitors to truly express themselves. The museum’s sets are decorated with luxury shopping bags, giant ice cream cones, and a private jet simulation. It’s a great way to get an over-the-top shot without leaving the metro Detroit area.
