The "Awkward Family Photo Exhibition," on display from March 27 to July 27, features images from the popular "Awkward Family Photos" website and book series of cringe-worthy — yet totally hilarious — portraits, vacation snaps, wedding pics, pet shots and more. It's a celebration of poor wardrobe and hairstyle choices, inappropriate poses among siblings and backgrounds, and props that defy logic.

The exhibition will showcase 10 themes: the family portrait; siblings; vacation; the kids; the holidays; weddings; dad; mom; the grandparents; birthdays, and the family pet.

"It invites you to celebrate those less than picture-perfect moments," the museum declares on its website.
