My fiance and I had been to Columbus several times, but one time we drove by the museum and I made a mental note that one day I'd like to give the museum a visit. Two weekends ago, we did. It was great! First, there is no set admission to the museum, pay what you can. There is a donation... More

We visited the museum to discover what it was about. We were very surprised to find very helpful Docents that shared a thorough history of the exhibits that were featured. We later learned the Docents were volunteers that were truly interested in providing an accurate description of the displays.

I love how it displays a local artist's work in the top level and displays the children's art from local schools. My favorite is the installation pieces such as the native american hut, school house, and old country house that was there last time i visited. The personal collection is interesting, too. It offers a plethora of variety of artwork... More

The Columbus Museum is a combination history and art museum. History galleries focus on regional history dating back over a thousand years as well as the history of the city of Columbus. Of particular interest to me was (1) the impact of the textile industry to the area, and (2) the cities important role in the Civil War. The art... More

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.
