This museum is in an antiques building that also has some architectural pieces and funk. The building is free to enter but the lunch box museum had a small fee. Totally worth it! I remembered many of these lunchboxes. The collector has been at it...More

This was the coolest museum ever! We couldn't get over how many lunchboxes there were and how long it would've taken someone to arrange them all!

The Lunch Box Museum recently relocated to a new space in Columbus, GA. The museum consists of a large room filled with old and new retro lunch boxes circa 1950s to the present, and perfectly captures the pop culture zeitgeist of the past 70 years:...More

Hi, We are so very sorry for your experience. This is definitely not the norm for us. You said it best, "I'm sure that at some earlier time the store looked better, but I'm afraid we caught it at it['s worst." That is so true....More

VERY UNDERWHELMING. Felt like someone's cold and dank garage. No info on year first made or what inspired it.

Had time to wander around and decided to check this place out. I was pleasantly pleased. If you've ever had a lunch box, the owner, Allen Woodall, probably has it in his collection. He has over 2000 of them and only a select pieces are...More

I am not sure what I was expecting but this was not it. I would have enjoyed the lunch boxes had they been in a nicer environment with other memorabilia.
