“Whether it’s a viral video, a tik tok dance challenge, or just an opportunity to have fun with friends and family, we here at Selfie Utopia want to help out with all of that.”
Selfie Utopia is the newest—and only—interactive selfie museum here in Memphis currently— located in The Wolfchase Galleria, and owned by native Memphians, Marina Le and Evan Lam.
Marina and Evan both enjoy traveling, and noticed that photo experiences are trending around the country. With the constant rise in social media, they thought it would be a great idea to bring this concept to the Bluff City.
“Everyone is looking for that perfect photo or background. We want to be able to help out the regular people who just want to come in and have fun, but also, if you are a content creator, you can actually come in here and make some magic happen,” Le said.
The selfie museum was hand painted and decorated by both Marina and Evan, along with friends and local artists in the city. Selfie Utopia is made of 15 stylish rooms, including an adult-sized ball pit that will simply blow your mind. Each room offers a unique aesthetic, so visitors should have no problem finding the a set up that suites their vibe.

Similar to traditional museums, Selfie Utopia plans to change up their rooms in the future in order to highlight and showcase more local artists.
“We have some rooms that we want to switch up in the future. Since we are Memphis made, we want to keep up with the tradition of partnering with local artists because the talent is here!”
With numerous ring lights, selfie guides, and a dressing room, the museum offers everything you might need to for the perfect photo op..
Though Selfie Utopia is meant for you to have fun and be free, the business owners are serious about their visitors’ health and safety. The owners use a disinfectant fogger along with air purifiers to ensure that guests stay safe throughout the visit. In addition, the business also has disposable face masks, hand sanitizer stations, and requires temperature check upon guests’ arrival.
