Following in the footsteps of larger cities like Atlanta and Denver, Conetta Griffin and her family are bringing a selfie museum and photography studio to Columbia.

“There was none around here, and I saw no reason that Columbia should not have one [selfie museum]. So we decided to make it our own and do something similar,” said Griffin.

Wired magazine defined a selfie museum as “a new genre of installations, which seem to exist only to produce the perfect photo,” according to a 2017 article. The museum can also be used as a photography studio, a private event space, a recording studio and a brand marketing space, according to the company’s social media.

Selfie Mania will open in Columbia Place Mall on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The selfie museum will include 15 different themed rooms curated for the perfect picture.

Visitors can expect to see a first-class flight-themed room, a cafe room, a locker room, a disco room and a room with a swing covered in flowers, among others.

An office-themed room could make for a professional head shot background, and the business will have numbered balloons in stock for birthday-themed photo shoots, Griffin said. From professional photography to iPhone photos, Selfie Mania is meant to be a photo shoot destination in Columbia.

For its opening weekend, Griffin is selling tickets for half the normal price at $10 each for an hour to explore the studio and take pictures. A VIP event will be held Friday night in an effort to bring attention to the store before it opens.
