The Museum of Selfies on Instagram and Tumblr features historical paintings that seem to be taking photos of themselves.

Art director Olivia Muus came up with the idea after taking a photo of her friend's hand holding a smartphone in front of a painting at the National Gallery of Denmark in Copenhagen.

She has opened up her museum to the public, and we feature some of the best images in this gallery. You can submit your own pictures via museumofselfies@gmail.com or on Instagram using #museumofselfies.
