I was amazed and impressed at the collection this museum had. If you live in or near Memphis or are just visiting for the weekend, make time to stop by. You will not be disappointed. The staff was friendly and helpful. Also, make sure to bring a few nickels so you can watch and listen to a self-playing piano and violin concert machine. That was really awesome!
I want to see some dates of when the art was created. Am I looking at some Jade that is 1 year old 100 years old, of what. Not knowing much about Jade this was otherwise a wonderful place. Jam packed with art. Also included was an amazing display of photos and history of Memphis residents who are WW II Holocaust survivors.
They were closed at the time that I went in. But with what they had on display without having to go through the doors and everything was really awesome! They had little Snippets of History next to those pieces they had in the museum. The artwork was breathtaking. I was so fascinated by it and I spent an entire hour and a half looking at everything that I could.
They were closed the day that I went in. But there's still a lot you can see and read. Very beautiful artwork. And for the short things that you read, you get a lot of history out of it. It was clean and well-maintained. They had different hallways to walk down. But the artwork is so amazing. One of the coolest museums I got to go to yet.
I loved this museum. It has a neat vibe, plus I believe there's a teacher discount! The lady in the gift shop was helpful and nice. The exhibits are amazing.
