Arnold Schwarzenegger Museum, Austria It must be noted that the museum was opened under the direction of the actor. As he himself has explained, he has decided to open the museum in his own house, not to become even more famous, but to show his own real origin to the general public. The fact that he was born and grown in the ordinary peasant family is, according to the theorist, to give his fans more self-confidence and show that everything is possible in this world.

The museum was opened in 2011. His director is Peter Urdl, Arnold's companion. According to the unofficial information, the school friend of the actor has come to found the museum devoted to Arnold. The actor took an active part in his education. For example, he has almost completely rebuilt the kitchen after the child's memories, as well as handed over the most important and memorable things to the museum. The old family photos, the first dumbbells of the big bodybuilder, the incredibly realistic wax figures and the cozy kitchen with an old metal stove - the house in which Schwarznegger spent his childhood is full of valuable and unique exhibits.
