SMILE FOR THE CAMERA: Polaroid Fotobar is offering tourists a unique way to take home memories from Las Vegas with its fifth retail location at The Linq in the heart of the Strip.

The new 4,000-square-foot flagship lets patrons print pictures taken in-store as custom-photo home decor with products ranging in metal, stone, bamboo and canvas material. The staff, known as “fototenders,” are on hand throughout the store to help customers print their most memorable photos on a Las Vegas-inspired product.

Once customers have taken enough selfies, they can head upstairs to check out The Polaroid Museum, which houses photography from celebrated artists Andy Warhol, Lucas Michael, Maurizio Galimberti and Marc Serota.

Warhol’s exhibition, “Capturing Celebrity,” showcases some of his most famous celebrity portraits, including John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Mick Jagger and Dennis Hopper.

Museumgoers will also learn about Polaroid founder Edwin Land and view the first permanent mobile photography installation — constructed entirely of photographs sent in by the Instagram community.
