Arnold_1 It's a sad day for the American gubernatorial populace, the country of Austria, and iron-pumping aficionados worldwide: The Arnold Schwarzenegger museum is no more.

Officials of the privately run museum in Graz, Austria---birthplace of the Governator---announced this week that they were shuttering the tiny museum because they couldn't afford to stay open. The shrine, which featured Ahhhnold's exercise equipment, along with some photos and paintings, was opened in 1997 to honor Schwarzenegger for his 50th birthday.

Now the only museum dedicated to a current governor is the Ruth Ann Minner Museum of Macrame and Handicrafts in Slaughter Neck, Delaware. (Oh, if wishing made it so...)
