Celebrate creativity and culture through the experience of American art, regional history, tranquil gardens, and more. As a destination for people of all interests and ages, The Columbus Museum — or COMU  has something for everyone  from the art enthusiast to the history buff, the nature lover to the leisure visitor — it's free and it's all in one space! 

The Columbus Museum was awarded a Bridge Grant and an Arts Education Program Grant from the Georgia Council for the Arts.

The Georgia Council for the Arts is a strategic arm of the Georgia Department of Economic Development, totaling over $35,000 for fiscal year 2025.

In this episode, Libba chats with Kristen Hudson and Rebecca Bush from The Columbus Museum in Columbus, Georgia. They engage in a great discussion about the city of Columbus, the starts of their careers in the museum field, the founding of The Columbus Museum in 1953 and the exciting new renovations and exhibits currently on display.

With current exhibitions dedicated to women artists of the 20th century, local blues and folk music legends, and the whimsy of Andy Warhol, there are plenty of good reasons to visit The Columbus Museum this summer.

But the best reason of all? To check out the "reimagined" museum itself, which just went through its first major renovation in 35 years.
