07 Oct Schwarzenegger unveils statue of himself at museum in Austria

Former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger visited his hometown in Austria on Friday to unveil a towering bronze statue of himself at a museum dedicated to his legacy.

The museum in the village of Thal has been open since July and is in the two-story home where Schwarzenegger grew up. It includes several items that mark significant moments in the actor-turned politician’s life, including his first barbell, life-size “Terminator” models and his polished wood governor’s desk, the Associated Press reported.

The large bronze statue is of Schwarzenegger as a young bodybuilder –- in trunks and with flexed muscles.

Hundreds of fans turned out to see Schwarzenegger, who visited Austria with his son Patrick.

“For me, this is not only a museum,” he said. “It is also a symbol of will … everyone has a chance.”
