Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger unveils a statue of himself outside the home where he grew up, which he turned into a museum commemorating himself. Standing with his son, Patrick, at right, they opened the museum on Friday, Oct. 7, in Thal, some 140 miles south of Vienna, Austria.

The museum is home to things like his first barbell, the metal bed that he slept on as a youth, several life-size "Terminator" models and the desk he sat behind as California's governor.
