Arnold Schwarzenegger Museum inauguration attended by actor, son Patrick (Photos)
Arnold Schwarzenegger recently flew to his native Austria, with his son Patrick, to inaugurate a museum dedicated to ... himself.
The Arnold Schwarzenegger Museum is located inside the home where the actor was born, in the southern village of Thal.
During the inauguration, a giant, bronze statue of Schwarzenegger was unveiled. The 64-year-old actor won the titles of Mr. Universe, Mr. World and Mr. Olympia when he was a professional bodybuilder. Inside the building are life-size models of the "Terminator," the recurring film role that made the actor famous, the first weights he used as a teenager and the desk from his governor's office in California.
For me, this is not only a museum," the Associated Press quoted Schwarzenegger as saying. "It is also a symbol of will ... everyone has a chance."
The museum also contains photos of the actor, his estranged wife Maria Shriver and their four children.
"Just finished up @Schwarzenegger museum opening," his son Patrick Tweeted. "It was absolute mad house, I'll try put up photos later."
The 18-year-old famously dropped the last actor's last name from his Twitter profile and adopted Shriver's after it was revealed that Schwarzenegger had fathered a child with the family's housekeeper while he was married to the teenager's mother.
Schwarzenegger and Shriver, 55, announced their separation after 25 years of marriage on May 9. Weeks later it was revealed that he had fathered a secret child more than 10 years ago with Mildred Patricia Baena, who worked at the time as the family's housekeeper.
On July 1, Shriver filed for divorce from Schwarzenegger.
