This page contains pictures of the Columbia Museum that was at the Westfield Massachusetts factory. It was started in the late 1980's and continued until 2008 when the factory building that housed it along with several other of the old brick structures were torn down. 

 The museum was never open to the public but in the time of it's operation my father, Jack Kowal took many interested people on private tours through the museum and factory complex.

 Many have asked me how they can see the museum. The answer is, you can't because it's gone. I have been told the bikes are in long term storage but since I have no affiliation with Columbia Mfg. Co. I can't tell you if they will ever open it again. This is why I have put up this page, to give people a chance to see it if they never got an opportunity when it was open.
