Columbus Collective Museums

Lunch Box Museum - Columbus Collective Museums

This place has been rebranded as the Columbus Collective Museums. It contains a total of seven museums: RC/Nehi/Chero-Cola [that counts as three], the Lunch Box Museum, the Tom Huston Peanut museum, a car museum, and the Georgia Radio Museum.

Some of the "museums" are just one room, but they are all well-maintained and packed with curiosities. Also here: a nice antique store.

Loved visiting. Was very surprised to see that it includes a Soda, Radio and old General Store-style museum as well as the Lunch Box museum. Everyone was so friendly and very informative.

Way more than lunch boxes! Also included are museum collections of RC Cola, NEHI soda, vintage radios, enslaved peoples' pottery, and classic cars.
