Former California Governor and box office blockbuster Hollywood actor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, will have a museum in his old childhood home in Thal, Austria. His old friend will honor Schwarzenegger's life as a bodybuilder, politician and actor.
Arnold Schwarzenegger has captured entertainment headlines this past month. It was learned that Schwarzenegger and his wife, Maria Shriver, were having a divorce. It was also reported that Schwarzenegger will return to the silverscreen in the 2013 motion picture “Last Stand.” There have been rumors that the 64-year-old politician-turned-actor could reprise his role in another “Terminator” film.
It was officially announced that Schwarzenegger will have a museum that celebrates and honours his careers as a bodybuilder, a Hollywood superstar and the Governor of California, according to a YouTube video that contains a message from the Governator himself.
Although he did not make the official opening of the museum, Schwarzenegger did state that he will make a future visit for an official ceremony. Peter Urdl, Schwarzenegger’s friend, told the Austrian Independent that the ceremony would all depend on his schedule.
“Willkommen to the Arnold Schwarzenegger museum,” said Schwarzenegger in his opening address in a prepared video. “Hasta la vista, I’ll be back.”
So what exactly is in the Arnold Schwarzenegger Museum? The museum is located in his old childhood home in Thal, Austria where he lived until 1966. The museum contains his first weight-lifting equipment, memorabilia from his old movies, his favorite pair of cowboy boots, a replica Governor Desk and his old bed.
“He was especially proud of his old bed made of steel tubes where he used to lay and dream his dreams,” said the museum director.
It hasn’t been long since Schwarzenegger visited his native land. Last month, the “Conan the Barbarian” star was in Vienna to discuss the importance of environmental awareness during the Vienna Energy Forum – a United Nations Industrial Development Organization summit.
