I try to go to this museum at least twice a year. This week I viewed the Pasaquan Exhibit. Exhibitions rotate regularly. My favorite display is the Dale Chihuly boat. Wow! And it is FREE.

The quality and diversity of this museum was surprising for the size. It does not contain the Renaissance Masters but it does contain some good quality, important US artists. We found the dress exhibits to be especially interesting and informative. There are also some impressive silver teas services. There is an area where visitors can try their hand at drawing... More

We enjoyed the museum very much. We were more interested in the history side than the art, so that is what we explored. There was no charge for this museum. Very clean and just delightful to walk thru. Because of the bad storms the previous week the outside gardens were closed. I was a little disappointed, but Mother Nature had... More

The Columbus Museum offers Art for the whole family. This event is free. There is a donation box available to place money in. I took my kids here weekly when they were growing up and now we take my granddaughter. We learn something new each time we go. Kids can play with the Art tools/learning supplies on the lower floor...

There is a lot of local history from the Chattahoochee Valley. Displays and art cover a wide range of history from the early Indians to today. I highly recommend for locals and tourists. There is no admission charge.

If you're into local history and some more broad spectrum, this could tickle your fancy. On a hot summer day it is a nice way to cool off. I brought the in-laws here thinking it would be a great way to entertain them and show them some things about the area (we are relatively new here, so I couldn't be... More

Going to any museum is a wonderful experience, but for one like this, which has so much local history, you totally should call ahead and ask a docent to show you around. I have been there several times, but it wasn't until I took an actual tour of the place that I started to appreciate it in depth. It so... More
