In the modern age of selfie sticks, photo-sharing obsessions and social media addictions, one museum is looking to embrace them all.

The Museum of Selfies – a new museum dedicated to the “science, art and culture of self representation” – is opening its camera-ready doors in California next month.

Set in Glendale, a suburb of Los Angeles County just eight miles outside downtown LA, the pop-up museum (around from February 17 to April 17) aims to chart the 40,000-year history of self-portraiture and the “phenomenon of the selfie” in the era of social media – across which there are said to be more than 2.4 million selfies uploaded per day, according to the museum.
