Charging $5 per person over 12, decided not to go in. The Lunch Box Museum is inside the antique mall at the back of the lot; other fun cars and pop culture memorabilia inside too.

Lunch Box Museum

Owner Alan Woodall, a retired radio-broadcasting company executive, has been collecting lunch boxes for 20 years. The museum displays more than 2,000 metal lunch boxes and over 1,700 thermoses. The owner began collecting '50s and '60s TV trays, along with the original paintings featured on the museum's lunch boxes.

The collection has many originals, but also has various duplicates that the store sells and trades. Woodall's collection of lunch boxes range in cost from $10 and up into the hundreds.

Stopped by here on a recent trip up north and this particular location is clearly closed and for sale. All that's left is a faded "antiques" facade.

[Chris Nulph, 01/15/2008]

May 2008: According to the owners, the Lunch Box Museum is not closed. "It has moved to 318 10th Avenue, Columbus, GA 31090. It is still located inside The River Market Antique Mall which is also located at 318 10th Avenue, Columbus, GA."
