Enjoy What Columbus Has to Offer

Whether you like the outdoors or prefer staying inside, Columbus has a lot to offer!

After looking into a few things, I found places that  I didn’t realize existed here in Columbus. They not only sound fun but in some instances are free to enjoy.

If you enjoy museums, plan a visit to The Columbus Museum of Art located in downtown Columbus at 480 East Broad Street.  According to the website, the museum was formed in 1878 as the Columbus Gallery of Fine Arts, and was the first museum to register it’s charter with the State of Ohio. Sundays are a great opportunity to save a buck with admission being free to the public. Monday through Saturday admission is $8.00 for seniors 60 and over. If you catch a great weekend you can catch a few tunes provided by a local band, while gallery gazing. The museum is open year round Tuesday through Sunday 10am- 530pm and Thursday 10a.m.- 8:30p.m. For a detailed calendar of current exhibitions, visit the museums website at www.columbusmuseum.org or call 614-221-4848.

For the motorcycle enthusiast, I found the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum, located at 13515 Yarmouth Rd. in Pickerington, Ohio, open 7 days a week 9a.m.-5p.m., admission is $10.  A visit to the museum offers a look back at 75 years of motorcycling history including actual bike models, classic Harleys from the early 1900s, and Ohio made Hondas.  To plan your visit to the museum, visit their website at www.motorcyclemuseum.org, or call 614-856-2222.

More of a Thespian and drama lover? You may enjoy a visit to the Riffe Center Capitol Theatre located at 77 South High Street. Seniors are able to see sneak previews of different shows, called Senior Dress Rehearsals, at a discounted price. For information on Senior Dress Rehearsals call 614-460-7214.
