New York has the Museum of Ice Cream, London has the Selfie Factory and, soon, Canberra will have the Selfie Museum.
Months in the making - with COVID throwing a few curveballs into the mix - the Selfie Museum is set to open its doors in a matter of weeks.
But first things first, what is the Selfie Museum?
Essentially it's a place filled with installations designed to provide a setting for visitors to pose for photographs. Each installation is designed with colour and fun in mind, screaming out for not only photos to be taken but also posted on social media.
In the past few years, places such as the Selfie Museum have been popping up across the world, the most famous of which is the Museum of Ice Cream in New York. They typically feature colourful backdrops, oversized props and sometimes even optical illusions.
"Selfie rooms have been popping up everywhere and Canberra always misses out on everything, so that's the main gist of opening one here. We're just trying to bring fun here and make sure Canberra doesn't miss out," a spokesperson for the business behind Selfie Museum Curiousfox says.
Inside the Selfie Museum it's almost a maze made up of vignettes. And with each little setting comes a whole lot of colour and fun.
There are giant doughnuts, large ice creams and plenty of confetti. For those celebrating birthdays, the giant cake might be their photo prop of choice.
There are also flower walls and telephone booths, neon lights and streamers. And if you ever wanted to know what 800 rubber ducks look like when hung on a wall, this is the place.
What will be revealed in the coming weeks, however, is only the tip of the iceberg. There are already plans to expand the space and swap out installations to keep things fresh.
"It's so easy to come up with ideas. There are just so many ideas floating around the internet," the spokesperson says.
"It's all about mapping out how much space you need to do everything and how much space back do you need to be able to get everything in the frame.
"All of it is based on phone cameras because that's what most people will have, but hopefully, we'll get some professional photographers coming out, and even hopefully have some professional photographers available for hire as well for the super-keen people. That's the long-term goal."
For those wanting a shot to get the perfect shot, they need to book out a time slot for the Selfie Museum, each of which has a limited capacity. For $35, you get an hour to capture photos to your heart's content.
Roughly there are about 35 different photo opportunities, so it works out to be about $1 a photo.
There is also the opportunity to book out the entire Selfie Museum for parties or private photoshoots.
"It's just a great opportunity to get some cool photos. And they last a lifetime, so why not?" the spokesperson says.
