If you're liable to grumble about kids these days with their iPhones and their selfie sticks, the Art in Island museum that just opened in the Philippines is not for you.

Art In Island features originals as well as models of iconic art—like Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa and Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night—that are altered to encouraged photo-friendly interaction. "Art In Island allows visitors to interact and have fun with the art pieces," the museum's Facebook page explains. "You can take as much pictures and videos as you want! Here in Art In Island, we want you to BE PART OF ART. :)" 

While it might not be the best place to get a crash course in art history or admire the masterpieces of great artists, it does look like a lot of fun.
