Lately, so many families that enjoy the sights and sounds of central Ohio’s museums and cultural attractions had been reported to not be able to afford tickets as it was quite high.

Cindy Meyers Foley, the Scantland family Executive Deputy Director for learning experience and engagement at the Columbus Museum of art had mentioned to the press although they were oblivious to it at first, realization dawned that not everyone could afford the ticket prices.

"We realize there is a significant proportion of the central Ohio community that don’t have access right now because of financial ramifications" she had said.

Cindy Foley said that was why six Columbus museums joined forces to launch Museums for all Columbus, a national program focused on removing financial barriers to visiting museums and cultural centers and hoped it yielded positive results.

Museum owner Allen Woodall  has expressed his amusement and joy.

In his words, “I’m so excited now that we were able to give Columbus the Royal Crown Cola Museum, Tom’s Peanuts Museum, the Georgia Radio and Hall of Fame Museum.” 

Along with celebrating the museums’ openings, Woodall also celebrated his eighty-seventh birthday where he expressed his excitement and how wonderful the grand opening had been.

As predicted, the ticket fee had been reduced and a lot of indigenes trooped in to witness the graceful event.

"We feel like one museum can really help the other museums as far as drawing people. To have five museums connected under the same roof is something new and different, but people seem to really like it" Allen Woodall said to the press.

Featuring noteworthy observations from radio stations for the memorable day, Wireless Radio Bill Lewis (WRBL), an affiliated virtual channel television station licensed to Columbus included a microphone holder at the launch.

Allen Woodall, one of the highlight of the day had mentioned that his favorite item within the Radio Museum was a rare 1933 Coca Cola Bottle Radio, originally owned by former Coca Cola Company, President Robert Woodruff whilst stating that he had been a former broadcaster and grew up with it hence the excitement and overwhelmed atmosphere.

Like the popular Coca-Cola company, RC Cola commonly known as Royal Crown Cola shares Columbus as the birthplace of the beverage. Originally produced under the Royal Crown title, the company was rebranded in 1910 and rebranded again in 1925 before changing it in 1959, to Royal Crown Cola, its most popular drink which he made mention of that Royal Crown had made an intriguing impact so many lives in Columbus and deserved every recognition.

Displaying the artifacts as the buildings were launched, indigenes and visitors present at the launch could not help but be in awe as the artifacts were extremely breathtaking providing a cultural artistic scenery.

These museums will be open from 10 am to 6 pm daily.
