I feel that many people think Columbus does not have much to offer in the area of enjoyment and museums, but this was exceptionally above my expectations and I would definitely come back.

While waiting to see our son at Ft. Benning, we decided to spend some time at this museum, and we are so glad we did. First, it is FREE, but they do put out a container for donations. We donated about $5 per person in our group. The place is beautiful inside and well kept with many exhibits. It is... More

This museum was suggested as a place to get an overview of Columbus and it is true! It has a nice, historic section that really gave a "Who are these people and how did they get here" perspective. We did not know much about Columbus other than Fort Benning, and enjoyed learning about the Civil War history, the Native American... More

There aren't very many things now days that you can do or visit that are educational, well kept and are FREE, which is always a plus! - They do accept donations which we always give and considering the staff on hand, the cleanliness of the grounds and museum, I know my donations are going back into keeping the museum a...

The museum is Free and very professionally done. I especially enjoyed the movie that traced the history of the Columbus area from the time of the Indians to presen day Columbus and surrounding are. The legacy section was my favorite but my wife enjoyed. The art exhibits. Traditional over the contemporary. Well worth the time.

I live near the museum and I see every time a new exhibit comes to town. The museum is a wonderful place to stop in and just look around for an hour or even 2 or 3 hours! Whenever my wife and I have friends visiting from out of town, we take them here just to give them a taste... More

While small, this museum has a good sampling of both history and art. There is a good wing on the Bradley family and their influence in Columbus. There are several traveling exhibits, which keep the museum interesting. When in bloom, the gardens are impressive.

The museum has a children's exploration area as well as permanent and traveling exhibits focusing on art. This is an art and "historical" museum, not a natural history museum. The short movie will provide first-time visitors to the Columbus area with an overview of the "valley" and other places to see. A walk down one of the permanent exhibits provides... More
