We have visited this museum several times since we are local and have always enjoyed it. They were just starting to update the children's section downstairs, which was way overdue. I am sure we will be back again over the summer.

I absolutely love this museum! Lots of things for grown-ups to appreciate, and the Transformations room is perfect for kids of all ages! There's a stage and costumes for amateur actors to role-play, lots of hands-on exhibits, and a fun area for small tots. Definitely a must-see!

First off it's free! Which was a huge bonus and I wish I would have known this place was here all along! I'm not much of a art fanatic but the paintings were beautiful. Doesn't look that big from the outside but the inside you have upstairs and downstairs full or history about Columbus/ Phenix City and art.

The exhibit are always changing which I love my favorites have been Bob Marley, Micheal Jackson, and the Depression. My children love the kids museum on the bottom level. Plus two of my kids have had there artwork shown via school entries, that is always neat to see.

The building contains more art displays, than history-related displays. There are several floors you can view and access.

I would have liked a little more history and a little less art. I'm sure others would like the reverse. It was well set up for families.
