Social media and the millenials’ obsession has changed museum culture in a big way, and it’s all in each others’ favour. Riding on user experience and a do-it-for-the-gram appeal, museums and art installations are feeding the selfie culture with creative themes and picture-pefect concepts. From ice cream shrines and colourful murals, to avant-garde art and rain rooms, these are the museums to bookmark for your Instagram wall.

Yayoi Kusama Infinity Mirror Rooms, various locations

Step into the mind of avant-garde icon, Yayoi Kusama, who sees the universe in a colourful visual and auditory perspective told through ‘universes’ of infinity mirrors, polka dots, pumpkin motives and painting techniques. Vivid, relatable and highly Instagrammable, it’s an installation that lingers long after your visit. Find out their current and upcoming venues here.

Color Factory, New York

We shudder to think what the world would be without colour, so the guys at Color Factory dedicated 12,000 sq ft to interactive colour experiences. Here, you’ll engage in colour themes starring confetti, a yellow ball pit, and a menagerie of orange icons. It may seem like a gimmicky façade for art purists, but Color Factory seeks to explore mood and colour. Slide down the rainbow here.

Rain Room at Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)

The in(sta)famous travelling Rain Room that’s amassed a steady stream of hashtags from New York’s MoMa and London’s Barbican is more than just a visual marvel – it also engages your thought. Random International's rainfall simulation has been permanently acquired by LACMA, after enoying a 15-month run. Its next showcase is yet to be determined, but until then, watch the space here.
