Whether you’re looking to spruce up your social media profiles or a fun way to capture memories with friends, you’ll want to check out the selfie museums taking the world by storm. In selfie museums, you can find tons of perfectly photographable backgrounds, from rose walls to neon lights. One hour at a selfie museum could lead to photos with 25 completely unique locations!

“206 years ago the camera was invented, but it’s estimated that more pictures have been taken in the past six years than the previous 200. This business is a testament to that.”

John Londa, President, Hoover City Council

Cool Shots Selfie Museum is owned and operated by Danny Brewer, a Berry High School graduate (a former high school in Hoover, if you aren’t familiar) and Bluff Park native. The first Cool Shots Selfie Museum location is at The Wharf on Orange Beach, but Brewer knew his next steps would be opening a location in Hoover.

At the Cool Shots Selfie Museum, you’ll find 25 unique backgrounds perfect for your next Instagram post or TikTok. Some of the options include a wall of CDs, an Upside Down room, a pink rose wall with neon lights, a bathtub full of bubbles and more. Plus, there’s no need to worry about finding your perfect lighting or someone to take your photo—the venue is full of ring lights and tripods for your use.
