Museum Events in Columbus Georgia

Visiting the museums in Columbus, Georgia is as entertaining as it is educational.  We have the Columbus Museum which was established in 1953 and is one of the largest museums in the Southeast.  The staples of the museum are American Art and Regional History, but there is much more.  Temporary exhibits bring freshness to the museum’s collections, while ‘Lunch and Learn’ lectures about the museum’s artifacts, and classes in art and history are regular offerings.

Columbus has the Nation’s only Civil War naval museum aptly named ‘Port Columbus’.  This large and amazing museum features Civil War cannons, firearms, and most amazing of all, actual hulls and ironwork from Civil War ships.  Flags and battle emblems from ships of that era decorate the walls. On occasion, Civil War re-enactors walk around in the facility to enhance the experience.

And for the children of the 1960s and 1970s, you will be sure to get a smile from the Columbus Lunchbox Museum which features a jaw dropping amount of the metal lunchboxes depicting your favorite school age TV characters and heroes.  Do the Scooby-Do and Space 1999 lunchboxes ring a bell to anyone?

Our museums feature many fun, educational, and family oriented events you can attend, so be sure to stay up on the offerings by visiting
