This Incredible Bob Ross Museum Should Be On Your 2021 Road Trip List

Last updated:

Maybe it’s over optimistic, but I’m already planning several trips for 2021.

And at the very top of that list is a visit to this incredible Bob Ross museum in Muncie, Indiana. In case you have lived under a rock for the last 40 years, I’ll take a brief moment to introduce you to one of the world’s most beloved people.

Bob Ross inspired generations of people with his gentle demeanor and his paintings. The Joy of Painting, his global sensation of a television show, was filmed in the historic Lucius L. Ball home.

Now that former studio has been transformed into the Bob Ross Experience. Visitors can stop by to see Bob’s art and take a closer look at the space where he created so many fantastic episodes of his show.

The experience is open Wednesday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from Noon to 5 p.m. Tickets are $15 per adult and $12 per child ages 12 and under. Kids 3 & under are free. The museum is about 2 and a half hours from Columbus, and you can get started planning your trip here.

    Every morning we compile the best of Columbus news & events and deliver it in a quick 5 minute read that sets you up with everything you need to be a well informed Columbusian. Columbusite. Cbussian? Whatever, give it a try, you'll love it.
