The Scoop: Recently Reported: The childhood home of actor and legendary 7-time Mr. Olympia Arnold Schwarzenegger was converted to a museum to honor the former California Governor and iconic bodybuilder. Just in time for his 64th birthday on July 30, 2011, the facility opened to the public in Thal, Schwarzenegger's birthplace in southern Austria.

The "So What?": While the movie star and current MUSCLE INK Magazine sports-and-entertainment feature subject was absent for the grand opening, museum associates say Arnold Schwarzenegger will soon visit to deliver a replica of a colossal bronze statue immortalizing his image in a classic physique pose. As reported in "Andrew Oye's Pro-Muscle Report" earlier this year, an 8-foot, 600-pound statue was dedicated by the International Sports Hall of Fame (ISHOF) and stands in Columbus, Ohio -- the longtime host city of the Arnold Sports Festival's IFBB Pro Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic Bodybuilding Championships.

The two-story home in Austria was restored to resemble the way it appeared when the IFBB Hal of Fame bodybuilder resided there in his early days. The museum features numerous photos of Schwarzenegger, his first weight-training equipment set, a collection of movie memorabilia, and a replica of his gubernatorial office.   

Andrew Oye's Verdict: With the former "Governator" recently heading "back home" to Hollywood movies after the end of his term in elected office, Arnold Schwarzenegger is likely longing for a journey back to his original home where it all began -- the place that produced a determined individual who went on to become a champion among IFBB Pro League athletes, the International Federation of Bodybuilding & Fitness, and Joe Weider's Olympia Weekend Mr. Olympia Championships; a star of career-defining films like "Terminator," "Conan The Barbarian," and the "Pumping Iron" documentary; and an entrepreneur whose efforts support the sports and fitness industries.
