Columbus “selfie museum” announces permanent closure

Jack McLaughlin

Snapping the perfect self-portrait just got a bit more difficult, as the Columbus branch of a national “selfie museum” chain has closed its doors for good.

Selfie WRLD Columbus, which is located at 5043 Tuttle Crossing Blvd. Space 117, has closed, according to a statement posted to the concept’s Instagram account yesterday evening.

“It saddens us to announce that we are closing our Columbus store effective immediately. We would like to thank our customers for all the love and support,” the statement reads. “We have met so many amazing individuals, photographers, models and families. We are thankful to have brought the Selfie WRLD experience to Columbus!”


The concept first opened in the Arch City last fall, joining #Viral Columbus, a Selfie WRLD competitor that opened the city’s first selfie museum in 2021 (and remains open today). Each museum has multiple themed backdrops, where customers can snap photos using a host of tools, like ring lights, or embellish their shoots with a variety of on-site props, from fake money to milkshakes.

Selfie WRLD operates nearly 20 locations across the country, including others in Toledo and Indianapolis.
