Going to a museum is a great opportunity to absorb the history of hundreds of cultures spanning thousands of years. But it’s also an opportunity to have some fun, as one mother did when she paid a visit to the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C., and decided to mimic the poses of several works of art. The resulting photos quickly went viral when they were posted on Twitter by her daughter,  with the caption, “So my parents came to help me move to DC and I took them to the Smithsonian Art museum. My mom decided it was her time to shine.”

People on the Internet went nuts for the hilarious photos—which are, arguably, works of art in their own right. One social media user even wrote, “Please get her a TV show where she just travels around recreating art. 10/10 will watch.” Below, you’ll find some of the best images.
