Yup, Selfie WRLD MKE Is a Thing Now

Grab that selfie stick and get going.

It’s finally happening. The Milwaukee metro area is getting its first selfie museum. Selfie WRLD MKE, part of a larger franchise with 20+ locations scattered across the United States, opens in Brookfield on June 12. 

What can you expect from a visit? More than 20 immersive installations scattered throughout the suburban space. Each one has been designed to be as photogenic as possible  with lots of indirect lighting, visually interesting backdrops and props. 

   

For instance, one of the installations has been decorated to look like a mid-century diner, complete with vinyl bar stools, glowing jukebox and neon signage. Another includes a full-sized Harley-Davidson motorcycle, positioned under a sign proclaiming “Ride or Die.”

The museum will be staffed by local influencers who will be on hand to help visitors take great photos. 

General admission tickets will cost $20. And kids 12 and under can get in for $15. Visitors who purchase tickets are allowed to wander throughout the space for up to an hour, and they’re given the option of purchasing additional time if they’d like to extend their visit.
