Arnold Schwarzenegger Inaugurates His Museum in Austria
On Friday the bodybuilder, movie star, and
former governor of California returned to
Austria to inaugurate a museum dedicated
to him and unveiled a bronze statue of
himself flexing. The museum -- located in
the two-story Thal village house where
Schwarzenegger was born -- features
several life-size Terminator models and
memorabilia from his life.
"For me, this is not only a museum," he told
hundreds of fans, as excerpted by the
Associated Press. "It is also a symbol of
will... everyone has a chance."
Schwarzenegger's 18-year-old son Patrick
joined his father for the museum's
inauguration. The museum includes photos
of Arnold, his estranged wife Maria Shriver
and their four children throughout the
years. He described "the marriage with
Maria" as one of the days "that I remember
with great fondness."
Schwarzenegger, 64, and Shriver, 55, ended
their 25-year marriage in May amid his
revelation of a secret love child with
former housekeeper Mildred Baena.
