Lansing area’s first selfie museum opens at Meridian Mall
The old Hollister store at Meridian Mall has been redeveloped (and definitely re-lit) into a unique space to have fun and get the perfect ‘for the gram’ shot.
Selfie Museums are a fun and easy way to do an entire photoshoot with friends without having to search for multiple Instagram-worthy spots and appear all over the place!
Recently one opened in Metro Detroit as Michigan’s first selfie museum, but now we have a little closer to home here in Lansing and it’s called Let’s Say Cheese.
According to to FOX 47, Let’s Cheese is the brainchild of Natcha Klahan who came up with the idea because she loves making memories, taking pictures to send to her family outside of the United States and realizing that there nothing like it in Lansing … so far!
Klahan says FOX 47 the business start-up process, which normally takes years or at least a few months, only took three weeks with the help of her husband and “really great friends” to come up with all the renovations, plans and 30 different displays to take photos and interact with.
Of rooms that create illusions like an upside-down room and a two-dimensional room that looks like a rainbow striped design and just in black and white, there is something for every person and, more importantly, something for everyone. every aesthetic.
the open museum its doors on Wednesday April 7 and although masks are mandatory and COVID security protocols must be followed, you can purchase your tickets for the experience at the door for $ 25 (adults). Military and senior tickets cost $ 20 while kids six and under get in for free!
For my part, I know I’m already planning my outfit because I’m a sucker for a good spot to take a good photo (just ask my boyfriend who must have spotted spots with me before).
While Let’s Say Cheese may have had the space in the mall because Hollister closed, let’s take a look at more of our favorite retailers that no longer exist. Maybe we can turn their old places into more areas for some fun experiences:
