The Columbus, Georgia Visitors Bureau opened its state-of-the art Visitors Center offering warm hospitality and cool interactive technology to share the story of the city with locals and out of town visitors. A staple in the community for 14 years, it was time for an updated space that reflected the progress and innovation that Columbus, GA is embracing. Featuring a central informational table, media stations and literature displays, this well rounded exhibit is sure to please visitors of any age.
The 600 square foot museum is located in the bank lobby and was constructed within the floor space of two loan offices and a customer waiting area. This very intimate exhibit includes a custom built introduction wall with graphics and a digital monitor, as well as five full size vertical artifact cases with sliding glass doors for accessibility. These cases include adjustable shelving, lighting and additional artifact storage. There is a credenza style artifact display case, a large wall hung display of civil war rifles, a smaller wall hung display case for swords and finally a large display case showcasing an impressive arrowhead collection.
