Vienna selfie museum aims to make art more enticing - PHOTOS

Culture A- A A+

An Instagram-friendly museum is opening in Vienna, with interactive spaces for young people to create their own art, BBC reports.

Filled with brightly-coloured walls and giant objects, it has everything needed for the perfect selfie.

"The number of young people going to a museum has fallen, so we are trying to combat that with social media," says Petra Scharinger, co-creator of nofilter_museum.

"They prefer to live online instead of interacting with the real world."

Young people are among the largest users of social media sites. In the UK, nine out of 10 teenagers use social media sites such as Instagram, Facebook and Whatsapp.

The museum is filled with interactive exhibits which, Ms Scharinger says, invite people to really have fun.

There are 24 different rooms at the museum. Visitors can take pictures in front of various different-coloured walls for the perfect outfit snap.

There are also ball pits, floral walls and glitter confetti, designed for creative selfies. There is even a room filled with fake food such as cupcakes and macaroons.
